I have been selling data storage solutions for over 30 years, with 2/3 of those years in Europe. For the last five years, I’ve been with Spectra.

I love the fact that there are so many Spectra colleagues who have worked here for more than 20 years. The atmosphere and culture is great and I feel that my ideas and opinions are heard, even at the highest level of management. For example, I recently volunteered to work closely with our sales and technical team in Latin America as a junior sales rep in addition to covering support renewals for the East Coast and Latin America. It’s very rewarding to get new career opportunities and to help customers and have them thank you for your hard work.
