Meet the team: Dalia Mikene, Export Sales Assistant
In this installment of our semi-regular “Meet the Team” series, Industrial Tomography Systems invites you to meet one of the people responsible for developing sales opportunities and winning new customers across the world.
Name: Dalia Mikene
Background: I come from Lithuania where I obtained my degree in Mechanical Engineering at Kaunas University of Technology in 2004 and started a career at UAB Metmatus (one of the country’s leading metal working tools suppliers). Whilst working there, I continued studying at Kaunas and was awarded a Master’s degree in 2006. Some years later, I joined JSC HI-Steel (a manufacturer of stamped, deep drawn and welded steel parts for automotive industry) as a logistics manager and remained there until late-2012 when I moved to the UK. The role at ITS was everything I was looking for: an attractive position providing an opportunity to learn and progress, interesting technical solutions for a wide range of industrial processes, and a friendly team of professionals. I’m happy to have been a part of it since February of 2015.
Role at ITS: As Export Sales Assistant I am responsible for looking into potential new markets, generating new leads, maintaining and improving relationships with existing customers, following the sales process from the first communication to delivery, installation and technical support. I also support the preparation for events, conferences, webinars, exhibitions and workshops. Another responsibility is taking care of all export and import documentation, and organizing shipping to our customers all over the world.
Hobbies: I love traveling as this reveals a new view of the world each time I visit a new country and become familiar with its culture, way of life, nature and architecture. It is amazing how much you can learn about the environment you live in, the people that surround you, and even about yourself by just enjoying the beauty of other countries. My other hobbies are reading (mostly history and biographies of interesting people) and sport – I believe that a healthy body helps to keep a focused mind, good mood and positive attitude. I enjoy running and swimming.
Thoughts on ITS’s solution: Electrical tomography is a wonderful technology that keeps surprising me with its capabilities – there are so many things that can be discovered or improved by applying it. I am happy to see the difference our solutions make by optimizing processes: significantly saving materials, energy and time. In addition to this, the technology is constantly advancing, providing us and our customers with valuable new insights.
