Van Talent Success for Aaron
Everyone at Mertrux is extremely proud of Van Sales Executive Aaron Price who this week has graduated from the Mercedes-Benz Van Talent Programme. Aaron who is currently 2 years into his second spell at Mertrux has said "The programme is a great way to develop people and will stand me in good stead in my sales career".
The Van Talent Programme trains and supports the next generation of Van Sales professionals by providing structured learning, secondments and placements that focus on brand, products, sales techniques and customer service.
The course has taken place over the last two years with Aaron's time split into 3 main areas. 70% has been on the job training; Aaron is based at Mertrux Leicester and whilst completing this course has still sold his fair share of new vans. 20% has been spent on feedback, observation and liaison with mentors, coaches and leaders both from Mertrux and Mercedes-Benz. The final 10% has been made up of formal training at Mercedes-Benz UK.
The course cumulated this week with Aaron completing a final presentation to Directors and Management teams from both Mercedes-Benz and Mertrux. Aaron received an excellent response from both and received some very kind words in particular from Simon Neil (Sales Director of Mercedes-Benz Vans) and Colin Oakes (Dealer Principal of Mertrux).
Colin Oakes Dealer Principal on Aaron's final presentation said "Aaron did a very professional job and you would think he does this every day" and on Aaron completing the Van Talent Programme "Aaron is an asset not only to his family and the company but to the whole business".
Well done from everyone at Mertrux Aaron!
