„Set yourself goals, write them down and pursue them.“
I have been working in this industry for more than 35 years now; I did my training with an optician and pretty much learned everything from the bottom up. After that, I was employed in a high-end eyewear boutique, where I gained experience in the sale of expensive products. Later I worked for various eyewear manufacturers in sales. That’s something I have been doing for more than 20 years now.
What my job entails
As Director of Sales, I am on the road a lot, meeting our clients – the dealers and eye care professionals. But my job is mostly to motivate my team, coach staff in their sales activities, see their potential and promote their development. I see a product come to market – it is my job to know what works and what creates a challenge.
The coolest thing about my job
I work with staff a lot in my job. The coolest thing is to guide someone through a challenging situation that he then masters. Yes, that is a really cool thing to see how people grow and become successful in their lives.
