His graduate studies in Language, Culture and Translation – with an emphasis on German and English – are what led Valts from Latvia to Germany. The origins of his name can be found in the Latvian word “valdīt,” which means “to rule.” And that’s no coincidence, since Valts loves to take charge, especially when things get complicated.
“I enjoy tackling problems.” That may sound like a vapid sentence coming from someone in a job interview.
But with Valts, it couldn’t be more honest. A member of our TechHelp team, he quickly evolved into a popular point-of-contact after starting at Leinhäuser – especially when it comes to tricky files and their compatibility with different systems and programs. On top of that, Valts is one of our audiovisual specialists and brings the same level of enthusiasm to the team. After all, there are numerous forms of media and different programs that have to be mastered in order to come up with solutions suitable for international video content.
Valts is a tinkerer through and through – a knack that extends even to household devices and his car. He’s rarely tempted to let the toolbox fall. But when he has, he leans back with a book, movie or video game and dives into a sci-fi world – but even there, the heroes have to solve problems and save the world.
When you put it that way, it seems he stays pretty true to his name in all aspects of his life.
