While Croats Emigrate Abroad, Rimac Automobili Attracts World Class Sales Experts

Mate Rimac continues to prove that it is possible to be successful in Croatia.

Rimac Automobili, a super-car manufacturer from Sveta Nedjelja near Zagreb, recently expanded its sales team with a new member, Jens Svedrup, a man with vast experience in the business of selling luxurious cars, reports tportal.hr on December 22, 2016.

While one of the main dilemmas for professionals and experts in Croatia is whether to go abroad and leave the country, or whether to pursue their career here, the manufacturer of super-cars and technology for the automotive industry from Sveta Nedjelja has recently added to its sales team Jens Sverdrup, a Norwegian expert who has extensive experience in sales of this type of cars.

Sverdrup said that he was happy and proud to be joining the team, adding that he believed that Rimac Automobili would be able to reach new heights. From what can be seen from his LinkedIn profile, Sverdrup’s career includes, among other business activities, selling cars like Ferrari, Maserati, Pagani and Wiesmann. He was also head of sales for Lamborghini for Nordic countries and sales manager at Koenigsegg, a company of similar profile to Rimac Automobili. The only difference is that Koenigsegg in its Reger model uses technology developed by Rimac Automobili, and not vice versa.

The public relations department of Rimac Automobili explained that Sverdrup will be in charge for markets in Great Britain and the United States, as part of the company’s sales team, adding that the company has first met him three years ago, while the agreement on cooperation came after intensive talks which lasted for a few months. They added that, as an associate sales team member, he would represent an important link in building a global sales network.

Partnerships with these types of experts are extremely important because cars whose prices are in the millions are difficult to sell without experience in the so-called luxury goods market. It is therefore not surprising that such assignments are sometimes given to people who were previously involved in the sale of luxury drinks, jewellery or real estate, but the highest level of demand is for people with direct experience from automotive industry, just like Sverdrup. Since the number of companies which deal with such sales is small, the possibility to employ people with experience such as Sverdrup’s are very rare, because these are people who can choose a job anywhere in the world.
