Welcome to the first of what we expect will be many Meet The Team blog posts, a feature we’ll be running from time to time to introduce you to the talented staff here at Detail King. It’s often said that a business or brand is only as good as the employees who stand behind it. And while it’s absolutely true that we’d be nowhere with you — our amazing customers — the same must be said about the talented and passionate people who work here at Detail King.
For our first Meet The Team profile, we’ve selected our international sales manager, Jason Fung. Meet Jason:
Detail King: What is it exactly that you do here at Detail King?
Jason Fung: I mainly do sales and training. I also handle customer service, purchasing, receiving, inventory management, and more. Basically, on any given day, I take orders over the phone, handle customers’ questions and offer technical support via phone and email, I make purchase orders, I receive inventory, I build packages and make inventory adjustments and I enter Internet orders. I also make customer follow-up calls.
Detail King: What did you do prior to coming to work for Detail King?
Jason: Prior to coming here, I did an internship with ESPN Radio. I also worked as a valet to make money since the internship was unpaid.
Detail King: What attracted you to work for Detail King?
Jason: I’ve always been interested in cars and keeping them clean, and since Detail King seemed like a company where I would get a lot of experience in all facets of business, and I like the idea of helping people start their own businesses, it was a perfect match
Detail King: Where did you go to college and what did you major in, and how did that prepare you for the job you have today?
Jason: I went to Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pa., where I majored in marketing, sports marketing and supply chain management. When I started at Detail King I was the director of marketing, so my marketing classes helped to prepare me for my initial job responsibilities.
Detail King: What’s the most common mistake you think people make when cleaning their own car?
Jason: For the people who take the time to wash their vehicles on their own, I think the most common mistake they make is drying their vehicle with the wrong towels. For anyone still confused about this, I recommend reading our recent blog post, Best Chamois Combination!
Detail King: If you could take a one-year paid sabbatical from work to set up your own auto detailing business, what would you call it and how would you differentiate yourself from your local competitors?
Jason: I would call my business Reliable Reconditioning and I’d offer a full range of auto reconditioning services as well as detailing services. Most detailers only offer one of the two, so by offering both, I’d put myself in a position to differentiate myself from those who claim to do the same.Tags: Jason Fung
