Jacky Jiang, 36, as Senior Sales Manager in the SIMONA office in Shanghai, is responsible for looking after our customers in China. He has been a member of the SIMONA family since 2015 and took part in an audit of young potential for the SIMONA Talent Promotion Cirlce, before being accepted as one of its members, along with eleven other high potentials from five different countries. The two-year programme prepares future leaders of the company to take on management and leadership roles.
Customers and quality are the top priorities. To me, that’s what the SIMONA brand stands for.
How would you describe SIMONA in a nutshell?
As a best friend.
What makes working for SIMONA interesting and fulfilling?
Making life easier for people by developing innovative plastics solutions is a very interesting job. Our products create long-lasting solutions in many areas of daily life, such as city water supply. With their lightweight properties, new plastics can reduce the emissions generated by such things as cars and planes.
What makes SIMONA “a company like a friend”?
Trust and respect are the hallmarks of SIMONA employees all over the world. We live these values and that makes it easier for us to work together. I know that I can rely on my colleagues and on management too.
What made you choose SIMONA as your employer?
SIMONA is a leading company in the plastics processing industry. I can identify fully with its corporate culture and values. I soon realised that SIMONA offers me many opportunities to learn and progress professionally, for instance as a member of the internationally configured Future Leaders group. This scheme offers me opportunities for personal and professional development. In addition, I am part of a personal network with colleagues from all over the world.
What do you hope for from SIMONA in the future?
We began our journey into Asia a few years ago and still have many opportunities for future growth there. To do this, we need to expand our research and development and position ourselves with premium products in markets like the semiconductor sector, chemical processing industry and environmental technology sector.
What motivates you?
That’s quite simple: working with my team to achieve more sales.
