Responsible for major sales and growth of Edmonton area.
DISTRICT ACCOUNT MANAGER (Former Employee) – AB – 7 August 2015
Responsible for preparing and delivering business plans in Edmonton refinery chemical market. Sales goal was to have double digit growth with new sales and keep attrition to zero. A typical day at work involved working directly with the customers to solve problems and implement solutions that have a positive impact on their bottom line for profitability. I mentored and trained the younger sales group in Edmonton. Safety is a priority and this was always shown to customers and co-workers.
In my career with this company I have had sales roles as a product manager in marketing, District Manager and District Account Manager. My technical experience comes from working with drilling fluids, well stimulation, oil field chemistry, refinery, upgrading and tar sands.
The most enjoyable part of my career has always been working with customers so we can establish relationships to do business.
Flexible, meet new people, continuous improvement
Company does not have same policy every where in Canada.
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 6 April 2014
If you want to be treated like a second class citizen, please apply to this job. Nalco is a great company but unfortunately there are too many managers but no management in Fort McMurray and by the time the customer needs Nalco the most, Area and District Managers are too busy playing Curling, watching movies on their Ipads or which is even worse, sleeping inside the offices provided to them by the customer or telling employees under their supervision they are not "engaged" or you misunderstood everything due your communication issues. For these managers, being not engaged means not following their orders although this means doing a huge one time sale and putting on jeopardy the account in the future losing the customer's loyalty. After this, Managers will blame employees under supervision washing their hands for any responsibility of their mistakes. Managers in Fort McMurray don't have any qualifications or any background to justify their job positions, they still have their positions for unknown reasons. They don't want to recognize that people need to be recognize for their hard work and sacrifice to achieve of this great company. Right now, Nalco Management at the headquarters in US must take actions, otherwise, Nalco will start losing business and customers sooner rather than later. Do you know how many Nalco's employees have landed with competitors in the last two years. Managers in Fort McMurray, AB think that people who left Nalco are idiots, that they won't be successful at other company than Nalco and they are wrong
Great company and great people to with with excepts in Districts located at Fort McMurray

Assistant to Project Manager, Co-op Student (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 11 May 2012
Although I was only there a short time, I found my co-op experience at Nalco to be a positive one. I had the opportunity to work with important material and felt that I really helped the Project Manager to get ahead in his work.
