Opening of new business premises Van Raam 2019
3. What is a common prejudice about your work?
Ronald: 'People have the idea that salespeople only talk and socialize a on the phone and that they only freewheel a little. That may be the case sometimes, but it is also something very serious. You're having serious conversations with end users and dealers, and sometimes that can be tough. For many companies, it's also about being able to make a good profit. We also have contact with purchasing parties and those talks are at the cutting edge. Those conversations are sometimes a little less pleasant and that is often not seen by many people.'
4. What is your most memorable Van Raam-moment?
Marjolein: 'That may sound strange, but having the feeling that we are achieving something beautiful together.
