This week we got to dig deeper into the role of Sales Enterprise Manager at Nordcloud and interviewed Rogier from Amsterdam.
Here’s his Nordcloudian story!
- Where are you from and how did you end up at Nordcloud?
I’m from a small city close to Amsterdam called Weesp and have lived my 32 years old life here ( – 1 year when I lived in Spain/Argentina during my studies!).
After my studies I started at Canon as a Junior Account Manager and worked my way up to a more senior role at Pci/Canon. During that period I was working with Bart Bijman, who is now the Country Manager of Nordcloud Netherlands.
Bart was working at Nordcloud and I left Canon for a green oil & energy company called Argent Energy and we kept in touch. In the beginning of 2019 Bart called me about Nordcloud once again, and told me about an Enterprise Sales Manager role in the Netherlands. We discussed the unique business and the possibilities and I got hooked immediately!
- What is your role and core competence?
My role is Enterprise Sales Manager and everything I do is new business, so I bring new customers in.
I cooperate with cloud talent, partners and channels, set up meetings/organise workshops and onboard new customers with the full focus on Enterprises & Independent software vendors.
- What are your most used USP’s since working in Sales at Nordcloud?
It’s important to first listen & be approachable – it’s always about the customer and their infrastructure/products/services/apps.
After the customer tells me why they are unique (find the dots), I explain the history of Nordcloud and where we are good at (everything).
The most important thing after the meeting is that the customer have the feeling that “yes Nordcloud can bring my company further”!
- What do you like most about working at Nordcloud?
On a personal “human” level I like the fact that we are an international company, working closely together with different nationalities. Also, discussions at Friday drinks are just also always fun!!
On a company & customer level I like the fact that it’s never the same – solutions and situations are always different & unique. You get to develop yourself and meet and cooperate with so many different people!
- How would you describe our culture?
Open & helpful.
With any questions everyone is willing to help and work as a team.
#wintogether #growtogether – just like our values!
- What are your greetings/advice for someone who might be considering a job at Nordcloud?
If you want to work for an international & unique company with a lot of diverse opportunities and new/unique projects, you should defo have a discussion with us!
