Wordrap with Arturo Fernandez …

 

  • How does a typical working day look?
    I am traveling a lot for customer visits. At home, I usually start with sports activities, with walking or playing tennis early in the morning. At 6.30 I am at my desk and work until 3-4 p.m.

 

  • What makes my job exciting and challenging…
    Customers and technicians knowing the concept, but not how phytogenics work, or how to use them. Showing the proven efficacy and safety of Delacon’s phytogenics. Especially, if there have been bad experiences with competitor products in the past.

 

  • Three must-haves as Area Sales Manager… Passion for phytogenics, knowledge of the business, motivation.
