In this blog post we are pleased to introduce you to Connyee Chye. Senior Inside Sales Representative from Singapore and a winner of this year’s Hexagon Sales Star Award!
Tell us a little about yourself and your journey at Hexagon?
I am happily married with 2 kids, age 5 and 8. I enjoy watching documentaries and news programs. During my free time, I like to play badminton, cooking and gardening.
I started in the CAD industry as an AE in 2005. Throughout the years I’ve had experience with different CAD platforms and markets, from pure Mechanical, Machinery Industry to Automotive and Aerospace Industry. I joined Hexagon PPM 5 years ago, starting as a Sales Executive with CAS and am currently working in the role of Senior Inside Sales for Volume Sales.
What aspect of your role do you enjoy the most?
I enjoy building new relationships, developing the relationship from zero to becoming the trusted advisor. We as the direct sales person, are often the 1st in line and the 1st problem solver for the company. I enjoy seeing the customer satisfied after speaking to us, indirectly this trains us to be competitive in nature. Ability to speak to different type of persons and backgrounds, and provide strong customer service. As well as the result of closing sales (commissions), and the incentive to make more sales!
What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
I will be still in Sales in order to provide for my family. Perhaps, during retirement I will be an Antique Merchant / Kids badminton coach – my late dad had been keeping a small Antique business for the family and I enjoy playing badminton during my free time.
What did it mean to you to receive the Sales Star Award this year?
2020 was a very tough year. Getting the Sales Star Awards made myself and the team feel more appreciated and recognised. The awards does make us seen as more reliable and honest. To be honest, I am representing the whole Volume Sales Team receiving this award. Sales Star Award give us an additional sense of belonging to the company!
What would you like to achieve next, professionally or personally?
I am currently with Hexagon PPM where I can built a career which I can grow and take on new challenges with the company. Ultimately, I would like to assume more management responsibility and get involved in strategy planning.
