Learn how Harald Saeger, Senior Account Executive and man of many hidden talents, has turned his life-long passion of surveying into an impressive career.

Q: Tell us a little bit about your background and how you got to where you are today.
My father was a publicly appointed surveyor in North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany, so surveying has always been a pretty big part of my life. In fact, my parents ran a small surveying business with two teams of surveyors. I often tagged along with my father on his field assignments, theodolite, level, and all. Still I decided to go for a military career after finishing school. But it didn’t take long for me to realize that this wasn’t my path forward and remembering my roots, I enrolled in university in Bonn, Germany, to study geodesy. After successfully completing an apprenticeship as a surveyor, I decided to return to studying. I ended up graduating with a post-graduate degree in geodesy from the university of Bochum in 2003, where I also worked as an academic assistant for some time.
After graduation I managed to secure a position as a sales engineer with Leica Geosystems selling 3D laser scanning devices. I still remember well what got me the job back then (besides my technical expertise from my training and studies of course): My ability to explain complicated issues in a simple and straightforward manner, something that still distinguishes me today.
