This week’s “Senior Spotlight” focuses on Walter Orthmann, a 100-year-old man who recently received the world record for the longest tenure ever at a single company. Orthmann has worked at ReneauxView, a Brazilian textile firm with headquarters in Rio De Janeiro, for more than 84 years, having started when he was just 15 years old.
Orthmann began his career at RenaeuxView as a shipping assistant to help support his family as they struggled with financial problems. He quickly was promoted to a sales position and shortly after, Orthmann became a successful Sales Manager.
“When we do what we like, we don’t see the time go by,” Orthmann told Guiness World Records.
Orthmann is an inspiration and reminder to us all to pursue what we love! Watch the video below to see 100-year-old Orthmann busy at work!
