After eight years as Product Manager, International Marketing, I was appointed Operational Coordinator of the same division in early 2015.
As part of the strategy set by V33 Group, I coordinate the proposal, creation, implementation and verification of marketing actions that relate to the development of our brands and product lines internationally. This ensures consistency within our international business for our subsidiaries and distributors.
I like this job for its international perspective, which is very informative and enriching on an everyday basis.

This group which has kept growing for 50 years can boast of strengths including its product culture, appetite for challenge and risk-taking, proficiency in key elements of project management, and global perspective. These strengths today allow us to rival the largest groups on the European stage.
One feature that all employees of V33 Group have in common is the desire to push their limits. Everyone is involved in their work because they want to be. These shared values allow us to be very response compared to our European and global competitors.
After holding several jobs in different fields, I started my experience at V33 in the Consumer Affairs department. I was hired following a six-month contract in 2008. Beginning in 2009, I have had the opportunity to dispense training at the Domblans site, and since 2012, elsewhere.
Today, I'm head of the department.
I manage a team of five people whose tasks include providing advice and technical replies to consumers, stores and sales teams about issues regarding the Group's products and how to use them. Our team is also in charge of dispensing technical product training to new employees and the sales team, as well as purchasers, stores and training firms.
My goal is to to develop the department and provide our technical expertise and consumer vision to other departments within the company. Primarily, this entails marketing, as well as sales and digital technology.
A broad technical knowledge and a good understanding of the products are prerequisites for this role along with good communication skills, composure, courtesy and friendliness.
Central to my job satisfaction is the people contact, imparting knowledge and customer satisfaction and be patient, courteous, persuasive, and friendly while knowing when to take a step back. You need good organisational and memory skills too.
V33 Group is a human-focused company with a bit of soul. I identify strongly with the Group and my products.
