Danny's Journey at Conbit - When wishes match.

When wishes are matching

We are delighted to announce Conbit’s expansion to the US!

Danny Markus is behind the steering wheel, with help from Conbit HQ in the Netherlands. We’ve asked him how he ended up where he is today, and what the future holds in store for him. Here’s what he has to say.

So, Danny, tell us a bit about what you do now and how you started your career.

‘My current position at Conbit is the Sales Manager for Americas. It all originated when I dropped out of my Bachelor studies when I was about 20 or 21 years old. One of my closest friends called me from Afghanistan frequently to discuss the heavy scenery with me. I immediately felt the responsibility to enlist in the army. At first, training with the Airborne division, and later on with the missile radar launching systems.

But something kept bugging me regarding school. I had made a promise to myself to ‘get’ my Bachelors before I turned30. So, I started again, only this time it was Business Administration.’

What happened after you finished your studies?

‘I worked as an international fleet planner for a year and a half at Van Den Bosch Transports in a small town called Erp. Nice employer, with friendly management, but they didn’t have a sales position at the time available, so I continued my search for my first-ever sales job.’

So, what was that “first-ever” sales job?

‘It started with SGS Search Laboratory, where they conduct all kinds of research on chromium 6, asbestos, legionella, ceramic fibers, and other hazardous material. I was responsible for the sales that were gained from the petrochemical industry. Walking around in those big facilities, with all the different techniques involved to make our day-to-day lives easier, still amazes me to this day.’

But you did leave. Where did you go?

‘After a couple of years at SGS, it wastime to follow up on my management dream. I love sales, and mainly thetechnique behind it. But I’ve always shown leadership skills. And my wish wasto develop that at another company. So, I made the move to Conbit.’

Did you find it here at Conbit?

‘At first not. But flying to different countries has always been appealing to me. So, it was challenging at the beginning when Covid 19 happened, which changed the way we conducted sales for almost two years. But now I have found it.’

What changed? What is the big news?

‘I’ve moved with my family to the United States of America recently. Houston to be exact. Why? Because for me it will be a huge boost in my career since I will be responsible for creating a new Conbit branch in the US, with every business aspect that it involves. In addition to that, I’m almost finished with my Master in Business Administration qualification.’

Sounds like a lot of responsibility for one person.

‘That’s why I’m glad I get to do it at Conbit. Where we always work as a team. If you are located in Kuala Lumpur, Eindhoven, or Houston, we’ll always help each other, and our customers.’

Danny has had a remarkable career already, with choices not a lot of people make. That’s why we are glad that he wanted to move to the US to open up a new Conbit branch. Bold decisions create surprising outcomes!
