Girish Bapat, Sales Manager

KONE is an environment that provides us with ample challenges & opportunities.

The customers we meet are varied with different requirements. Hence providing the right kind of solutions to meet customer expectations is key. This calls for high level of involvement at every stage and this in itself creates a huge learning opportunity. I have been promoted as Sales Manager in less than 4 years of joining as a Sales Engineer. This is one of my greatest professional achievements and some of the key achievements I am proud of are:
a) A leading hospital project with 9 elevators & 2 escalators is a very prestigious order. It is a 19 storey hospital and required a lot of support from HO, Supply line and front line to make it happen. A great way to express ‘Winning together” to “Delight the customer”.
b) Single point of contact for another high-end customer, wherein all the stakeholders had to work together to support timely execution of the project. Once again great team work that kept us moving ahead

Learning at KONE:

The complete knowledge of KONE processes & the elevator industry in general.
Better Decision making skills, on time job completion and connecting with people

Special moments at KONE:

The Branch mood – spirit, keeps us going. All of us feel part of a larger family and every moment in KONE is quite memorable, both within and outside. Be it spending time with my own team or with customers, the teamwork  and “passion for performance” is something that makes us cherish every single moment.
