Sales Engineer with China business experience

Marcus Sohlberg

Dear Mr/Mrs,


My name is Marcus, an operative and accredited Mechanical Engineer experienced in international business and technical sales. The past three years, I've specialised in customer relationship management at a Fortune 500 automotive company and managed to procure several new businesses together with my engineering team. My daily tasks include daily contact with R&D departments and purchasers, working within tight milestones and often having tough negotiations.


Previously, I have also worked under pressure with direct customer contact in Shanghai during two years, at the same time as I pursued studies in parallel. During my time in Shanghai, I managed to reach an advanced level in Chinese, properties that I believe are very useful as the Chinese market grows rapidly.


I'm flexible and have no problems to relocate overseas, it doesn't necessarily need to be in China. On the contrary, I'd look forward to take on such a challenge to hone my sales- and project management skills overseas and to see my company acquire market shares and growing in sales.


My goal is to progress and hone my sales- and project management skills, to work on a commission based salary is not a problem. I would also like to act as liaison for a corporation, between Europe, USA and Asia in case you see that there's a demand. If you search for a hungry and operative person with experience in technical sales, I would gladly hear about your challenging position.


Kind regards,
