I joined Westcon in 2011 as a Regional Sales Manager looking after French West and Central Africa, based in Dakar-Senegal. I chose the business because of its geographical footprint; in fact, it was the only distributor with genuine EMEA and global coverage, with plans in place to expand and grow operations further in Africa. By 2015, I was in charge of the business process outsourcing (BPO) programme and SAP implementation for Africa, before becoming Sales Excellence Lead to drive operational excellence.
I enjoy working here because of the company values, the structure and opportunities to grow and build a career plan. The workplace environment really allows staff to reach their potential as I believe there is always a room to do more and achieve more – the sky is the limit. Personally, coaching, training and strong leadership have made a real impact on my career here.
