In our Team of the Month section, we highlight some of the important faces from across the industry who perhaps aren’t always in the public eye.
This month, it’s the UK sales team at NAS specialist QSan.
What’s been your biggest successes of the past 12 months?
Achieving staggering growth of 130 per cent in the UK with just a two-man team, plus attending our first exhibition and putting our first booth together. Also, we are opening our UK- based RMA centre for the UK and Europe.
What’s the best part of working in your team?
We work very well together.
Our past experience in the storage market means we know how to focus our brand to achieve the best service for our end users – not just with products, but with support and services.
What’s the hardest part of working in the tech industry?
The constant evolution of technology means that you have to strive to be at the top of your game and keep your knowledge level high. Then, with so much competition, you have to know how to position the brand to be the one that people want to choose, so you have to learn what you are up against; it’s a constant learning curve. It’s hard, but luckily for us it’s what we love doing.
What’s the funniest or most memorable memory of working in your team?
Our first exhibition was a great day. We had a whole new booth to set up with all new marketing materials and our first live demo. It was challenging but we had a great laugh; we got to look at some of the other vendors in our space and see what they were doing. It’s great fun working together, so when we get into the groove of something like an event, it’s just a great vibe on the stand.
Who makes the best cuppa?
David is the tea man, whereas Stefan prefers a strong coffee.
