Our heart and our whole DNA is direct sales

Our sales team are the driver of our overall success. Working as a sales man gives you the opportunity to receive direct feedback and direct recognition from customers. You help our customers with their problems, help to generate new businesses or show with our products a real added value. Many of them build up long-term relationships with our customers.

Experience reports of our employees

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 

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!
