We are happy to welcome Monica as part of our Sales team. In her interview, she will tell you a bit more about her background, her responsibilities at Akanoo and what she is doing in her free time:
What have you done before joining us?
After studying Architecture/ Design and later Electrical Engineering at NYU, I landed at Mühlbauer AG as a Sales Engineer and then followed the same Sales path for the past 12 years. Moved back to Germany in 2010, after 3 years working at Oracle and have worked for Dell/ EMC, Mailjet and Webtrekk in Munich, Paris and Berlin before joining Akanoo.
What are your responsibilities at Akanoo?
I’m the Senior Corporation Manager at Akanoo meaning the Sales point to our major target markets DACH and also responsible for expanding Akanoo internationally and winning new great customers.
What do you enjoy the most about your work?
I love Sales and have been expanding German, French and American companies in Europe, North America and also MENA. Sales is very emotional to me and I love offering Akanoo solutions to companies that struggling with communicating to their non-buyers and help turn them into buyers and increase their turnover.
And what do you usually do after work?
Yoga, Kick-Boxing, Jogging, Fashion and Interior Design, I believe I am a little bit of both intro- and extrovert and always try to keep the balance by spending some quiet time drawing sketches, reading books and watching movies!
Which colleague would you take with you to a lonely island and why?
I’d take Gwen with me, we will talk only in French so that I can remember some forgotten French language skills of mine ;-), She’s very patient with my French and a perfect teacher!
Which attraction/part of Hamburg do you think you should definitely visit and why?
As an architect/ designer myself, I am very looking forward to visiting Elphi (Elbphilharmonie) as it is one the largest and most acoustically advanced concert halls in the world. And of course the chocolate museum (yam yam yam)!
Which apps could you never do without and why?
I can’t live up without my online banking Sparkasse, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, WhatsApp, Telegram apps.
