An interview with Shaun Stokes, Technical Sales Engineer

What do you enjoy the most about working at Chiorino?

 One of the great things about the company is that we have a fantastic team of people with a wealth of knowledge. I started my career with Chiorino in 2010 and at the time I was relieved to find guidance everywhere I turned. Now that I have over 10 years’ experience of the industry, I have the opportunity to return the favour and help some of our newer colleagues, which is very rewarding.


What are Chiorino like to work for?

 The company offers support in every sense of the word, and this goes for our colleagues as well as our customers. When I first decided that I wanted to progress to a Technical Sales Engineer role, the management was quick to put the necessary training in place. Because of that, I am now doing exactly what I wanted to be doing for the company and enjoying every minute of it.


What does your day-to-day role entail?

 I normally begin by reading and responding to the first emails of the day, and then preparing literature, samples and any other relevant information which will be useful based on the appointments in my diary for the day ahead. The purpose of each appointment can vary depending on the customers’ needs, so we are always equipped to perform site surveys, belt audits, belt inspections, and new product presentations.


What makes Chiorino different to other companies you have worked for in the past?

The beauty of the role is that almost every day is different, but planning is key. Chiorino is always evolving and the constant development of our products means that we need to maintain a close relationship with our customers to keep them informed of what’s new and how it can benefit them.


What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I like to keep my mind occupied and be creative. I enjoy photography and editing, and I also play guitar and write music. When the week finally catches up with me, I like to unwind with a glass of wine or two and catch up with the football.
