By Jennifer Meek, Director of Marketing, Charlotte Products
We were happy to welcome Henry Feng, the newest member of the Charlotte team, this September. Henry is now the Charlotte Products Facilities Sales Specialist for the Ontario region including National Canadian Accounts. He comes to us after nearly two decades in the sales industry, and shares a commitment to knowledge transfer, education and creating solutions for every customer. Get to know Henry a little better in the interview below.
What are some of the things you have been working on since you started?
Right now, I’m onboarding, learning, training and meeting people. It’s been productive and really great to internally connect with our team here, who I will be working with closely in my new role.
What excites you about the job?
After researching Charlotte Products and getting to know the company, I found that Charlotte’s mission aligns with my sales philosophy, which is based on building relationships, selling solutions and educating the customer. I’m very excited to work for a company that is perfectly aligned with my strengths and interests. In addition, we are in the business of health and safety. That is an incredibly important industry, especially right now during the global COVID-19 pandemic.
How has it been to jump in in the middle of a pandemic?
What we do at Charlotte has become more important and valuable now than ever. We are focusing on lowering the risk of an outbreak, and we are able to provide solutions and knowledge that can really make a difference for public health and safety. So our mandate is to educate all of our distributors and end users about the ways they can prevent an outbreak, and I am eager to get that information to more individuals through my work in Ontario.
What are some of your interests outside of work?
I live in Toronto with my wife and two daughters, who are 16 and 8 years old. As a family, we are very active in our church and community in Toronto and spend much of our time volunteering. I am from China originally, where I started training in ping pong at age six. Most people don’t realize that ping pong is a national sport in China, like hockey here in Canada. I was once a semi-professional player, and still enjoy playing whenever I can.
