Meet our newest account manager Barry Janssen
Since August, Barry Janssen has joined our team as senior account manager! We are delighted with his arrival and are happy to introduce him to you. We do this using our familiar introductory questions.
Where did you work before and what was your position here?
Before this, I worked in lighting for about 26 years. During those years, I managed a production department for a number of years, which included some component purchasing. After the company grew, I focused entirely on procurement. At a later stage, I also started doing partial sales in the Netherlands and Belgium. Then the company also started to focus on the project market and I moved further into sales as my main job. Within sales, I focused mainly on the technical projects such as residential and hospitality projects, both in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. Here I was still only doing the purchasing for complete products such as technical and decorative lighting. All in all, different positions and lots of experience!
Where are you from?
My origins can be found in Panningen but I have been living in Helden since 2018. Until we built a new house in a new neighborhood of Helden in 2018, before that I always lived in Panningen.
How did you end up at Lixero?
At my previous employer we already worked a lot with Lixero and after much insistence from Tom I ended up here with Lixero haha 😉.
What do you enjoy most about your position?
The diversity of work and customer contact is also a lot of fun. But also especially the lighting itself is a wonderful product! When a project is delivered beautifully you always look back on it fondly.
What can you wake you up at night for?
You better not do that haha, I can’t be woken up!
How do you like to spend your weekend?
Especially spending time with my young family at the moment, they are 4 and 6 and still require attention.
