Daniel working as Key Account Manager with a focus on Hong Kong, Macau and the ESD sector
What is the best thing about your job?
Flexibility – being home-based, I am able to better manage and balance my career and family life, especially when my kids were babies. Moreover, it is an advantage to have prompt communication with factories (due to the time difference between Europe and Asia).
Why did you choose to work for Forbo?
‘God has written it’ – I accidentally entered the flooring industry in 1998 and Forbo was the first flooring brand planted in my mind (at that time I was Forbo Sarlino’s dealer in Hong Kong). As my career developed (4 years in HK and 4 years in China), Forbo was getting stronger and had the most comprehensive product range in the flooring industry. Today, Forbo is a ‘Smart’ flooring solution provider in the market, not only presenting wide range of flooring materials, but we are also delivery a strong message of ‘Reliable flooring systems’ by harmonizing industry, quality, sustainability and life style. This is one of the missions in my daily activities.
What makes Forbo stand out from its competitors?
We are not just a manufacturer and trading corporation, we are:
* Willing to invest in markets and business partners;
* Provide respect and are responsible to our stakeholders in the market;
* Create the new innovations and design in the market;
* Never step back from our mistakes;
* Understanding our weakness for further improvement.
What do you think is the strength of Forbo as a company?
As long as people living, the requirement of flooring will not be ended. Forbo is ‘non-stop’ improving and developing our products. The most important is creating the demand and leading the market trend, which make us keep on growing. It is also a ‘positive drive’ to our business partners growing.
