Question 1 —
So let’s start with finding out something about you. What are five things we should know about Wassi?
First of all I would say I’m a travel freak. The older you get the heavier the travel – thankfully I still love to travel!
Secondly, I’m also really competitive. I’ve love football and have played for more than half my life and whenever I get a chance I still play. I see my job in sales like a football match – I’m the scorer – the no.9. I’m very disappointed that Germany left the Euros early!
Third? I will never give up. Clients appreciate that. If anyone ever says, “You will never win” to me, that triggers me and motivates me hugely to go the extra mile on performance.
I’m very sociable, which enables me to build relationships very quickly that last for a lifetime. It helps me be successful dealing with complex international companies.
Lastly, I’m a team player. I want to convince my team of my ideas rather than push them through, because it’s important we support one another. Without our teams, we are nothing.
You just work exclusively with fans that adore your brand. Fans who might know your brand better than you do.
How many languages do you speak?
I’m Greek, but I was born in Germany in Stuttgart. I can speak six languages: my mother tongue is Greek, I was born and raised in Germany, English is the language of business, as well as French, Spanish and Portugese.
