Position Title: External Sales Director
Tell us about the best mentoring experience you've had during your time here at Purina.
I would say, other than the day-to-day learning experiences from working with our Audit VP, my best experience has been participating in the Mentorship Program within the Customer Development Group with a Director of Finance who has moved up in the company through numerous roles throughout the sales organization. The insights he shares with me are very helpful in order for me to shape which areas of the company would help me achieve my goals.
What is your favorite part about working at Nestle Purina?
The fact that Purina provides you not only with a wide variety of options to further your career, but also with subject matter experts who are willing to share their experiences and skills with you to help you get there as well.
What advice would you give a new hire just beginning their career here at Purina?
Be proactive and don't be afraid to try things outside of the box. You are better off making a mistake this way than just doing the status quo. Also, I would say if you are interested in multiple functional areas, let your manager know so you can gain experience in numerous areas of the company to make you a more well-rounded and successful part of the team.
