The Director of Sales at a US-based technology company sat down to discuss his life, his career, and his professional philosophy
SOUTHHOLD, NY / ACCESSWIRE / July 27, 2022 / It is with great enthusiasm that Daniel Gornetzki, noted tech industry sales executive, announces that he is the subject of a new, in-depth interview. The interview, which was conducted by freelance journalist Stefan Junge on behalf of an online periodical aimed at entrepreneurs and businesspeople, was published on July 5, 2002.
Early in the piece, Daniel addresses a question about what inspired him to enter the field of software sales. "Truth be told, I never thought that I'd end up where I am in my career. One of my first mentors gave me a valuable lesson, which he himself also experienced; nobody that has gone into sales meant to go into sales, not even the most successful salespeople. It's something you just fall into," he recalls, adding, "While there was no definitive idea in my head that I'd end up in sales, I realized early in my career that I was really good at it, and so I decided to pursue it."
Further along in the interview, Daniel Gornetzki is asked to cite the one strategy that he feels has served him the best from a professional standpoint, answering, "Being genuine and honest. People have these preconceived notions that salesmen will do whatever they can to get you to buy their wares, even resorting to deception and lying. I couldn't disagree more. I try to be honest, upfront, and forthright about everything involved in sales. By doing that, you'll find that your client retention goes up, and at the end of the day, the clients end up liking you because they trust you to take good care of them and not take them for a ride, which results in business growth."
