Renaud Martin - Product Manager 

Renaud Martin - Product Manager 

I joined the KENT family in 2006 as a Marketing Assistant for the Benelux team. Only 5 years later and after some ad interim Marketing management responsibilities, I became European Product Manager and am now responsible for one of the most important product ranges, representing more than a quarter of the groups' sales revenue. 

My competencies and entrepreneurship have been recognized and rewarded throughout the years and KENT allowed me to grow internally from national to international duties and from perational to strategic activities. I have been glad and still am, to take all these great challenges and I'm now looking forward to the next level!

Christian Pietzka - Head of Marketing & Business Development

For me, KENT combines the spirit, of optimism and dynamism of a start-up with the safety and the values ​​of a medium-sized family business. Thanks to our flat hierarchy levels, we are able to react quickly and directly to the needs of our customers as well as of our employees and also adapt to current market conditions. In particular, exchanges with colleagues in the team, but also with colleagues from other departments, is a lot of fun.

Heiko Rogge - Key Account 

Heiko Rogge - Key Account 

In April 2019 I came to KENT Deutschland GmbH to take over Key Account management for German dealership groups.

A decision that I have not regretted for a second. YES, the tasks are challenging and YES, job performance is required - but that's exactly what led me to KENT.

 I always feel that my opinion is important to my colleagues and more importantly respected. Although not all ideas can be implemented in the short term, you feel that you are an important part of an overall process and even part of a family.

Individual personalities are encouraged. You can feel the spirit of optimism and the support for individuality at KENT Germany ... "Do it and go your way!" - This sentence from General Manager Sascha Koster has been fixed in my memory from the very first day.... I want to go my way for and with KENT and I look forward to our future!

Peter Verhavert - Sales Representative

Peter Verhavert - Sales Representative

In 1990 I found my way to a career at KENT. The high quality of the product line has attracted me enormously and always motivated me to sell "KENT". That enthusiasm has been passed on to a number of friends who have also found their way to KENT, most of whom are still active after more than 20 years.

I started as a representative in the automotive division. For the past 7 years, I have been selling the same industrial product line exclusively to companies, the self-employed and SMEs that are professionally involved in technical maintenance and assembly techniques.

The contact of KENT's representatives and the added value of our products leads to a win-win situation. The often unprecedented quality of our maintenance products allows people in the field to do their work more efficiently and we, as representatives, meet more loyal and satisfied customers.

Barbara Carnevali & Sebastiana Pruiti - Customer Service

Barbara Carnevali & Sebastiana Pruiti - Customer Service

We are Barbara and Sebastiana and joined the KENT family in 1995 and 1997 respectively.

In those years KENT Italia was looking for staff to complete its staff in the back office and we were lucky to have been selected as members of the team of the Customer Service department.

Subsequently we also worked for a few years in the Credit & Collection sector, where our knowledge of the corporate customer database has further increased and, for the past 10 years, we have been consolidated in the Customer Service sector.

More than 20 years after the beginning of the collaboration with KENT we are happy to be still in the company and to work together in the field of SOP (Sales Order Processing) and Customer Service.

In our opinion, the positive aspect of working in KENT is that we feel part of a large family, within which we both have the opportunity to do our work independently and with a spirit of enterprise and where, if necessary, we know we can find support, solidarity, humanity.

Working "in tandem" for more than twenty years we feel to be a strong team, our work is carried out in harmony and according to well-established schemes and we always strive to interact positively with all other departments in the office and with colleagues sellers in the field. It gives us great satisfaction to be able to make our personal contribution to the achievement of business objectives, through the presence and availability to all colleagues and trying to be as efficient as possible. This, in addition to allowing us to grow professionally, gives us the opportunity to grow on a personal level.

Changes do not frighten us, we have always considered them as something positive. Our formula is to "really work together", so we are ready to face any challenges we may face in the future.

Bruno Verberck - Sales Manager Automotive

Bruno Verberck - Sales Manager Automotive

I joined KENT many years ago. Being a “petrolhead”, my interest in the products and in their technical superiority and the support of many real experienced “KENT people”, helped to develop myself as a salesman. KENT gave me an opportunity to develop myself through focus and application.  Starting as a salesman, I became a teamleader and after a few years, a sales manager, responsible for the sales in two countries.

The nice thing about working for KENT is that the tasks are very varied. Being responsible to help salesmen grow, in addition to helping on a European level or even helping in developing our worldwide distributors made this my dream job. Above all, knowing that this company is a real big family, with very nice colleagues, a company with the best chemical products to solve technical problems in the market, makes me just super proud to be part of KENT !
