The first year of Wouter
Already 4 years I worked at Special Fruit where I helped to ensure the smooth running of the logistics department. After a few years I felt I was missing something. I enjoyed explaining things to the drivers and tried again and again to find new solutions to make everything run as smoothly as possible. The extra challenges together with solution-oriented thinking and a smooth talk led me to a new department: sales.
Special Fruit gave me the chance to get a taste of commercialism and I haven't looked back since that day. I wanted only 1 thing and that was to become a great salesperson.
My first ever sale was on February 2, 2022 and immediately I had the sales bug. I was allowed to start within a new project of Special Fruit, so together with some other colleagues the subdepartment "DAYTRADE" was created. From then on, time flew by and, despite some obstacles, it has been nothing but enjoyment.
I am incredibly grateful for the opportunities I have received from Special Fruit. This has allowed me to meet many new people, learn more about the fruit, get in touch with the supplier, learn the ropes of negotiation and go on several business trips and to incredibly informative trade shows.
