We all speak the same language
“Every day is different and that’s what attracted me to this job the most – along with the people aspect. As a sales manager for South Europe, I have teams in different countries. They’re not all sitting next door to me and they all have different nationalities (and yet we all speak the same language: we’re all passionate about the organization and business we’re in!). I am often out in the field with them, so people skills are really important. I need to give them the right degree of trust and empowerment, and make sure they are always highly motivated to deliver the right solutions. These are key elements in building a successful sales team. And I love putting all my energy into it!”
“At the same time, I am an intermediary between the market and our company. I travel a lot, keep my ear to the ground on the market, and translate what I hear into the most appropriate strategies to make our customers’ business and our own business a shared success. Even in the office I’m in constant contact with colleagues and clients around the world... I call this travelling with the mind. Every day, the global approach of our organization, together with the cross-border responsibility, convinces me that this is definitely the right job for me.”
“Not having a real working routine also helps me find new motivations and challenges within our company. What I mean is that, in my job, I often need to go beyond pure sales activities. There’s a lot of interaction with other departments, like Supply Chain, HR, Finance and Marketing. This makes it even more diversified and interesting. I constantly learn new things and have opportunities to explore different aspects of our organization.”
