Teemu joined giosg’s sales team as a part-time Sales trainee in November 2015 through Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences’ practical training course. During his 5 week tenure at giosg, Teemu supported the sales team by prospecting potential customers in Finland and Europe and booking meetings. After a successful five weeks, Teemu started writing his Bachelor’s thesis for giosg and began to work as a full time Client Manager in June 2016.
Working for an agile company is a key highlight for Teemu, as he feels the company's responsiveness to customer needs has enabled him to become a better salesman:
“I particularly enjoy meeting with customers and being able to find new solutions to their problems. giosg has a wide product range and as an agile company, we have the opportunity to develop new solutions to respond to our customers' needs. Successful client meetings boost my confidence and motivation to develop my skills further. This is solution selling at its best.”
Teemu also values the positive work environment and the opportunities to grow and develop at giosg:
“Even though every sales person has their own targets, we cheer and support each other to achieve better results. The atmosphere in the office is open and colleagues are helpful. giosg is a great place to build a career since employees get a lot of responsibility as well as the freedom to develop new processes.”
Teemu has since continued his journey at giosg to become a Senior Client Manager in June 2018!
