Nasser Ben Bachir joined the Axcentive sales team in November 2014 as International Sales Manager, to be responsible for accounts in Southern Europe & Latin America. Now he has his feet firmly under the desk, he shares some thoughts with us about the job!
“I already knew that the chemical industry was broad and challenging, and I am glad to transfer my skills to the specialty markets of Axcentive which is offering high value and performance products. I also love the international aspect of this role and am proud to be part of the team”.
Multilingual Ben Bachir has a sales background in the gas chemical industry; his most recent role was as an export sales manager to Africa and the Indian Ocean. He has moved from the Lyon area and will be based at Axcentive headquarters in Provence – from where he will continue to travel widely. His portfolio includes direct accounts and Axcentive’s agents and distribution channels. High contact with the markets in the early months meant that there has been ample opportunity for curious Nasser to learn about all the different application areas and build the expertise which is important for Axcentive sales managers to have, in order to be able to provide meaningful solutions to customers.
Toby Heppenstall, General Manager adds:
“We are very pleased to have Nasser on board. He has demonstrated great motivation to absorb technical knowledge and single-handedly delivered a conference presentation very early on. He has forged meaningful relationships with customers, and distinguishes himself in the team by his irreverent humour!”
