We are very pleased to introduce you to Sohel Shaikh who joins our Sales team as the new Business Development Manager.
Tell us about your experience.
I have over 15 years international sales experience in publishing. The bulk of which was at The British Standards Institution selling standards, compliance and regulations information in over 50 countries. Previous to that, I worked at Wolters Kluwer Health focusing on the pharmaceutical sector.
What appealed to you about joining IFIS?
IFIS has the perfect combination of stability, quality and agility. The company is truly passionate about providing customers with what they need and nurturing staff development. IFIS really does deserve its Investors in People accreditation.
What are you enjoying most in your role so far?
Understanding the depth and sophistication of Escalex which I am very keen to showcase to our customers.
What particular skills do you bring on board?
My commercial experience and customer focus in the publishing industry. Having met and worked with customers from all over the world and my knowledge of the standards, regulations and compliance landscape puts me in an ideal position to help grow Escalex.
How do you like to relax outside of work?
I love to travel to destinations with natural beauty and a rich history. I also like to paint portraits (if I ever get the time!)
On that final note, what is your favourite thing to cook?
I like to cook exotic and spicy dishes from India and Bangladesh. All learned from the best chef in the world; my mother of course!
