Welcome to Our New Sales Development Manager: Alexander Larsson

What has Sales Management, a chameleon, and Pico Sours to do with Learningbank's new Sales Development Manager? Read more and get wiser.

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank?

I have studied Business and Economics for 3 years, but I started my working journey when I was 16 as a waiter, and then I became a bartender. Then I became a Sales Manager for Filippa K, but there was no connection with my other employees, and I need really good inspiring people around me. I’ve had my own event company, and my most recent job was as a Key Account Manager at the company Protosell.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

Emmie (SDR in Learningbank) told me about Learningbank, and when I dug deeper into the company culture and the product, I got very excited. And I eventually decided to take the job after talking to Learningbank themselves, where I found out that they planned to go to the Swedish market. 

What excites you about working in Learningbank? 

The culture among the employees, the brand and the product. But I would never go to a company where I don’t believe in the product. It fits very well with the time we’re in with a lot of digitalization, and there is no one else in the market right now like us. We are unique.

How do you use your skills in Learningbank? 

I’m a very social kind of guy, and I’m a chameleon because I can shift and talk to different kinds of people. I have great sales techniques both when I dial a potential customer, and when I talk to them in person. I speak Swedish and I understand the culture, which is a good advantage when we approach the Swedish market. I listen and see what is important for them. Where are their challenges? That is going to be interesting. 

What can we always ask you about?

Food, golf, dogs, drinks – I can mix some REALLY good drinks. My own favorites are Cosmopolitan, Whisky Sour, Bloody Mary, and Pico Sour.  

What can we never ask you about? 

Names. 

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive? 

Leonardi DiCaprio – because he is cool.
