Get to know team Kloeber!
We’re back for round two of our ‘Meet the team’ series, so you can get to know a bit more about team Kloeber! Last time, we caught up with our Marketing Manager, Karen Fogarty, and today we’re chatting to our Technical Sales Consultant and secret tennis pro, Toby Zimmermann. Let’s drive straight in…
When did you start working with Kloeber?
I started 10 years ago.
What does a day in the life of a salesperson look like?
I start the day with a coffee and check my emails, typically we get a few new enquiries early in the day to contact, this is then followed by answering the phone, meeting clients in the showroom, processing orders, taking payments, making outgoing calls and responding to incoming emails. Occasionally I pop to site as well.
What advice would you give someone wanting to get into sales?
I think an honest and informative approach is the best way to go, our clients are very knowledgeable and appreciate us being able to answer all their questions in a relaxed but detailed manner.
What’s been your career highlight so far?
Making peoples dreams coming reality by providing the correct products for their project.
If you could turn back time and restart your career, would you change anything?
I try not to dwell on the past but I did have a wonderful opportunity to work for Sky Sports when I was 19 and do wonder sometimes how this may have turned out.
What would you do with 15 minutes of fame?
I would love to play on Centre Court at Wimbledon.
If you could meet one person (dead or alive) who would it be?
I would love to meet Travis Rice, one of the most influential and talented snowboarders on the planet.
Name one thing you can’t live without
What advice would you give to your teenage self?
I would give the same advice my parents gave me and that’s to go and see the world and travel.
Tell us one thing people aren’t likely to know about you…
I used to be a tennis coach before getting into windows and doors.
Thanks, Toby! Keep an eye out on our blog for the next in our ‘meet the team’ series, and while you’re here – why not follow us on Instagram for the latest Kloeber news and updates?
