Edward Grierson, UK
Area Sales Manager
1 years with Alo

 

Driven teams, a market leading product range and personal development opportunities!


How did you join Alo? In a few words could you describe your main tasks in your position?
I joined Ålö in 2014 having worked as an account manager for a market leading agricultural parts distribution company. After 7 years, I wanted a new challenge with the opportunity to progress in a forward thinking and market leading company. When the opportunity at Ålö arose, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for!
As an area sales manager for Ålö UK, every day is different and presents new challenges and opportunities. The key objective for me is to build stronger partnerships with our customers, identifying and fulfilling the requirements and expectations of their sales force, workshops and dealer principals.
To achieve this, a large part of the my role is sitting down and talking and listening to our customers to really understand what drives their decision making process with regard to our product. With this I can then put together long-term solutions for them, tailored to their individual requirements with much less focus on short-term business. One of the busiest aspects of the job is providing our customers with day to day back up, support and knowledge.

What type of background is needed for your job?
A varied one! Knowledge of the Agricultural market and machinery is very important, but also an ability to get on with people, a hunger to succeed an ability to listen, educate, resolve issues and be organised and structured. And that’s just to start with.

Why is Ålö an attractive employer?
Ålö offers the opportunity to work within a small and friendly and driven team, with a market leading product range and good opportunity for personal development.
