The size of Alo is very interesting to me, small enough to know the people with whom you are working and big enough to invest in marketing and R&D!
How did you join Alo? In a few words could you describe your main tasks in your position?
I joined Alo in January this year having worked as managing director of southern Europe subsidiaries supplying heavy equipment to glass processors. I was looking for the opportunity to challenge myself in a new sector, bringing with me my experience in management and sales.
The position proposed by Alo convinced me because it was requiring a great autonomy and a lot of energy. In my position today I have to analyze the market, propose sales actions, follow with regularity the segmentation and level of our sales, join the sales inspectors during their visits in order to meet the main distributors and of course report to each business unit manager.
What type of background is needed for your job?
You must be a mentalist to influence your distributors, a coach to train your teams, a mechanic to solve some issues. Joking aside, you need to know how to manage, motivate and analyze. I hope that my educational background in business administration and my experience in sales will help me and my team to boost Alo France turnover.
Why is Alo an attractive employer?
The size of Alo is very interesting to me, small enough to know the people with whom you are working and big enough to invest in marketing and R&D. As far as I am concerned I also appreciate the “Scandinavian management style”, straight to the point!
