Name: Sebastian Krüger
Job title: Team Leader Sales
Office in: Salzgitter, Germany
Company: Salzgitter Flachstahl
On board: since 1997
I started to work for the Salzgitter Group in 1997. Being born in Salzgitter I knew the company as one of the biggest employers in the area.
Today, I am team leader in sales at Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH. My job focuses on organic coated coils destined for customers from the construction industry. The main objective of my team and me is to ensure excellent support for our customers while at the same time bearing in mind the company’s interests. As team leader I am the interface between customers and internal departments like production or research. I am calculating offers, negotiate about prices and conditions. For this purpose, I often travel to meet clients on site and get a first hand understanding of how we can cover their needs.
I have always been a passionate traveller which makes me cherish my job in sales. I enjoy travelling, seeing new places, and tasting the culinary delights of the respective regions, especially in Spain and Italy. In 2006 I got the opportunity to work for Salzgitter Mannesmann Trading in UK for a period of six months. This truly was a special experience for me. But I also appreciate those days that I spend in Salzgitter, as every day is different and brings new challenges.
In the past years, the Salzgitter Group has gone through rough times. Nevertheless, I am convinced that I made the right decision when I decided to work here. I take pride in working for a company that carries the name of my birthplace, and I want to support this company to rise to even bigger strength.
