Marketing Manager in Osnabruck
I´m the Marketing Manager for EMEA. I´m responsible for the marketing activities in our main markets there, such as UK, France, Germany, Poland and Russia. Together with the marketing team in the head office in Canada, I create email campaigns, brochures and other artwork, organize shows, deliver content to the press etc. etc. – everything to support our sales guys and help to achieve our revenue targets. And of course put 2020 in the mind of our customers and prospects.
To be honest – there´s no such thing as a “typical” day. Dealing with different products, different sales teams and at least five different languages makes it difficult to have a typical day. I´m concentrated on organizing a show in Moscow, next day I´m creating an email campaign for one of our products in France or think about possible webinar topics for our UK market. Plus there are journalists calling from every country to ask for the latest company news or our software releases, not to mention the meetings which are necessary to keep in touch with all the departments at 2020 to gather information and being up-to-date for the daily work.
I love working with people from so many countries. Of course it´s challenging sometimes as we all are used to different business cultures, but it´s great to see how everybody is collaborating and trying to give their best for the company to achieve the goals we have set together. As we are a small marketing team you just need to learn new things every day in order to get things done and support the company in the best possible way.
Only one? Humm, okay, then I´d like to be able to clone myself. I could be at different places at the same time, discuss with people, meet their requests and get things done without any personal and timely restraints. While doing this, one of my clones could be sitting on the beach, looking at the waves and just relaxing 🙂

Mouans Sartoux, France office.
Buenas Dias, Hello, Guten Tag, Buena será… This is my daily routine, which is anything but a routine; setting up pre-sales meeting in Spain, scheduling Italian Catalogue production, while driving to an Ideal Spaces meeting in Germany, with corporate account management to lead in France later on that month coordinated with our UK offices best practices… This is what my definition of a fulfilling job is. Merci et à bientôt!
Being able to bridge the gap between the Sales Team, the Data Team, the Pro Service Team and customers from all over Europe.
We do have our Patriarchal-hierarchical side which is highly enriched by the North-American spirit bringing freedom in the relationships between all employees while respect is maintained. It’s like being part of a family, except that we chose to be part of it.
Superman, he is the only one who is admired by many of us, even if he wears his red underwear on top of his pants. I tried to do the same and I didn’t come out with the same results…LOL
