[Interview of the Month] Sabine Treml, DACH Team Leader

3'

1/ Hey Sabine, can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

After a month of training with the team in Paris, I joined the Munich office in October 2017 as a New Key Accounts Manager for the DACH market. Since this summer I have been the DACH team leader.

Like a few other Lengowians, I first worked for a marketplace, PriceMinister Rakuten to be precise. For me, working for Lengow in Munich was a great opportunity to stay in the e-commerce sector which I really enjoy while acquiring more “technical” skills to market a SaaS solution. This mission also allowed me to return to my native country after a good few years spent in France.

2/ What’s a typical day like at Lengow?

As team leader, I have a double role: my key mission is to be the main point of contact for the German market both internally and externally. I train and lead our team on-site in Munich and ensure we have great performance. I also report to our parent company and am in close contact with the teams in Paris and Nantes.

I’m also continuing to manage New Key Accounts. Here, my mission consists of detecting profiles of merchants or brands likely to want to implement our solution in order to manage, measure and optimize the performance of their product feeds.

Day-to-day, I will contact these merchants, evaluate their needs, introduce them to our platform with an online demo, answer their technical questions with the help of our technical support and support merchants in their first steps at Lengow.

3/ What project(s) are you currently working on?

We are preparing the 3rd edition of Lengow Connect Munich on Thursday 14th November 14 in partnership with Stylight. This is our annual event designed to bring together customers and partners around an afternoon of conferences followed by a networking cocktail reception. We look forward to seeing all interested in topics such as e-commerce automation and cross-border.

Of course, we are also preparing next year’s objectives and trade fairs to give Lengow more visibility and a prominent place in the world of e-commerce in Germany. To this end, we are strengthening partnerships with local players such as marketplaces and web agencies.

We are also looking to expand the team, so I am working with our HR to find promising candidates to join the Lengow adventure.

4/ Any time-saving tricks at work?

During my time spent in France, my colleagues sometimes mocked my “German rigour”, but I think it’s totally exaggerated! Honestly, I try to do things right from the start to avoid going back and wasting time.

5/ Any recent e-commerce news that made a mark on you?

The European partnership announced between Cdiscount in France, Germany’s marketplace real.de, ePRICE in Italy and eMAG in Romania. For merchants shipping to these countries, this cooperation will be a great opportunity to make their daily lives easier – even more so, of course, if they use Lengow to have impeccable product feeds and optimize their revenues using our dashboard!

6/ What kind of e-shopper are you?

I’m always looking for new cool sites, and not just for work!

Shopping online is just great convenience, whether for tickets, books, gifts or cosmetics. I use my PC less and less at home, so shopping is done on mobiles. I also find the concept of click and collect very convenient. However, I don’t yet do my weekly shopping online, so there still remains potential!

7/ Lengow in 3 words?

Alright, I’ll do it in 3 “i’s”: international, innovative and irresistible!
