Meet Anthony - Sales Executive

  • Why did you choose to work for MAN?

    I was working for another manufacturer and was feeling unfulfilled, and a friend told me about the opportunity to work for MAN. I had an interview/getting to know you session with Simon Makin and I felt that our personalities clicked instantly and knew I had to work for him. The good pay, commission structure, car scheme, health care etc. are all added bonuses, but working for a company that I knew would work for me was the biggest selling point.

  • Describe what it’s like to work here in three words.

    Challenging, rewarding and fun.

  • What do you get up to in a typical week?

    I spend a lot of time in my car: going to visit my customers, as well as potential new customers. I also get into the office to catch up on admin, as well as putting quotes together. I make a lot of phone calls and send a lot of emails, but face-to-face is my preferred method of contact.

  • What’s been your proudest moment at work?

    Securing a deal for ten trucks with a customer that I have known for three years, after months of back-and-forth, and a LOT of hard work.

  • What makes someone successful here?

    From a sales perspective, I’d say resilience, because you won’t win every deal, and it’s easy to dwell, but you need to dust yourself off and crack on to the next customer. I think you need the willingness to compromise where you can, and the confidence to back yourself when you believe that there is no space to compromise; that applies to the approach to customers, and internally. A positive attitude never hurts either!

  • How have you and your career developed since you joined us?

    I feel that I have already been given a good amount of training and support towards becoming better at my job, and I feel more polished as a Sales Executive, on the whole. My product knowledge is vastly better, as there is always someone that you can talk to and ask questions. I would like to think that I have set the foundation for future growth within MAN.

  • What’s the best thing about working for MAN?

    I can honestly say that I’ve never worked for a company where everyone that you speak to is nice, and goes out of their way to help you like they do at MAN. My team are always game for a laugh, as well.
