Account Manager

A unique sector

While studying Technical Business Administration, I started working for a supplier in the automotive industry. After some wandering around, I've now been working in this sector at Vernay flow control solutions for over 3.5 years.

As someone with a great affinity and interest in engineering, it's fun to be part of the many new developments in the automotive industry. Due to the broad applications of Vernay products, these can range from products for seat comfort systems to emission systems for the latest generation of internal combustion engines and even the current transition to alternative propulsion systems such as; hybrid, fully electric and fuel cells. Working as a Sales Manager in this sector and within Vernay, provides many challenges requiring a high degree of independence and responsibility.

Small yet big

Vernay is an international organization with a relatively small size, especially considering the number of customers and markets it serves. This size creates a cozy and personal atmosphere, which is rarely found in larger companies. This also ensures that the lines of communication are short and that you are a linchpin in the entire organization. This makes Vernay a fun and committed employer for the enthusiastic and committed Sales Manager!
