👋 How has your first time at LEKAB been, and tell us more about your role as Sales Manager?
– The first month was about learning the house rules (every workplace has them, part of the culture) and getting to know one's colleagues & portfolio and customers. As far as the role goes my job is to retain existing customers & bring new logo customers into the LEKAB realm.
💼 Tell us about your past work experiences. What did you do before you began working for us?
– My past work experience ranges from summer jobs to the tech side of ICT to sales. Mostly I've worked in sales, with various roles & various companies ranging from Finnish, German-Japanese, Swiss, French, American, and Swedish-Finnish. I've had the pleasure of working in a very interesting field for over 20 years. This has also offered me opportunities to work abroad as well; in the Netherlands, DACH countries, the Baltics, and the Nordics (Sweden & Norway are my personal favs). Yes, I've been around.
🎯 What motivates you the most at work?
– What motivates me is success – to a certain extent. But mostly, serving & solving customers' challenges and nurturing long, meaningful relationships that are mutually beneficial is the main motivator.
💪What do you like to do in your spare time?
– My spare time, if I have any, is spent outdoors, reading or hanging out with my kids, i.e. family stuff. And the gym – at my age, it's a must🙂.
