Name: Marcel D.
Position: Key Account Manager / Manager Business Development Germany | Switzerland | Nordics
Transporeon Group since: 2007
Started in 2007 as a trainee in the Transporeon Group in Ulm. Until Dec. 2008 I was working in our Customer Care Team for Carriers, supporting our customers in using our platform. Since Jan. 2009 I continued my training in our projects management department. I finished my training in June 2009 and continued since then in my role as “After Sales Manager”, responsible for the management of customer projects with big industrial companies. After 1.5 years I took over the responsibility of a project team with three team members in total in my new role as” Teamleader Customer projects”.
Until August 2013 the team grew to in total 7 team members, so I decided to take a new challenge in the Sales department of the group. Since Sep. 2013 I am working as a Key Account Manager / Manager Business Development with the main focus on the markets in Germany, Switzerland and the Nordic countries. So I am responsible now to create new business for the Transporeon Group. That means my tasks are to be on site with customers and creating concepts for their logistics processes in the future, winning new customers, supporting the customer projects, supporting the customers after working with our tools in their daily business.
The reasons why I like my work at Transporeon Group:
Working in the Transporeon Group means for me to be a part of a young and international team. We have an environment of practicing high intensive team work every day. I love to be “my own boss”, organize and manage my schedules on my own and always to have the chance to bring my own ideas into the Group strategy, to move things further.
In our projects we practice a perfect mix of being focused and successful, but also to have a lot of fun in working with each other.
The great thing is to have the opportunity to do projects with big industrial companies like Kellogg´s, Coca Cola or Thyssen Krupp, and to see that you have been a part of the customers success in their logistics organization afterwards.
