#FutureInYourHands – This motto properly describes how TÜV SÜD empowers its employees. Let's hear directly from our TÜV SÜD executives and staff members about their personal experiences working for TÜV SÜD.
Can you discuss your role within TÜV SÜD?
I am the new Account Executive for the Western region. I work on sales for the Business Assurance division, which consists of everything related to compliance, including various standards and Industry 4.0. I’m generally the first person to interact with a client when they are interested in using our services, so I walk clients through a step-by-step process to ensure they receive the certification they need. I also work to maintain good relationships with clients by offering TÜV SÜD’s other services and training courses to benefit their businesses.
You mentioned you recently started working here. What made you want to join TÜV SÜD?
I’ve been with TÜV SÜD for about a month, but have been involved in the Business Assurance industry for a few years. I’d say the brand recognition and the opportunity to work with international companies are what really drew me to TÜV SÜD. I’m currently based on the West Coast, but I’m originally from Italy. While living in Europe, I traveled quite frequently and became familiar with TÜV SÜD’s brand. Also, the consistent communication I had with John Tesoro and Mark Alpert from the very beginning also played a big part in why I chose a career with TÜV SÜD. They stayed in touch with me throughout the process and ultimately convinced me to join the team.
Being from Italy, how have you transitioned to life in the United States?
I actually moved to the U.S. around eight years ago. Soon after graduating from college, I received a job offer in California. I was in my 20s at the time, so I decided to take a chance and explore opportunities in America. Eventually, I met my wife, who is from Northern California, and we got married. I’ve enjoyed being able to create a life for myself here.
What do you enjoy most about your Account Executive role?
I really enjoy having the opportunity to work with different people and companies that span various industries every day. To add some perspective, I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. In the morning, I can have a meeting with a tech company and speak with Information Security Officers and by the afternoon, I can visit the manufacturing facility of another company. Working with different people across various industries on a daily basis has really helped me to evolve my career and pursue more of my interests.
Are there any hobbies you enjoy outside of work?
There are a few things. I love to read and watch sports. I also work out regularly and enjoy listening to music. I play a few instruments, but since moving to the U.S. I’ve been mainly playing guitar. I’m also a car enthusiast.
