Working in sales is far more than just knowing all about your own products, as Gpi De Gouwe’s Sales Manager Lex Kersing enthusiastically and extensively explains. “It’s a fantastic job if you love what you do, enjoy working with people and don’t mind being on the road a lot.”
Lex has worked for Gpi De Gouwe since July 2022. With experience in a wide range of positions for various businesses in lots of different sectors, Lex is a true all-round techie. “In my first job, I started as a mechanic at a paving materials factory, but had become technical manager by the time I left. Subsequent jobs followed in propulsion technology, chemical processing installations, packaging systems and processing equipment. I also worked on dispersion pumps and mixing, emulsification and dispersion systems for the food industry. As a result, I have a great deal of knowledge of all kinds of aspects of technology, mechanics and processes,” explains Lex with his typical cheery and down-to-earth demeanour. This knowledge is extremely valuable in his field of sales.
