Meet our Team: Sergio Mendes

What is your background?
My early background is technical. I graduated as a mechanical engineer and I have a Masters degree, all focused in acoustics. I started working on engineering projects and support, and I have some experience with training. Working for a distributor, I gradually moved to a commercial role, focusing more on pre-sales and bid support, then liaising with represented manufacturers. I moved to a full-time sales position with for DNV GL, and then I joined Zenitel. My formal training and strong work focus were always on Consultative Sales, learning to establish long-term business partnerships.

What do you enjoy about your role?
There are many: providing Zenitel’s best-in-class, quality, and professional products to Latin America, and seeing how intelligent systems integrated into security solutions steadily grow is exciting.

What career advice do you have?
Always try to find your best self and look to your peers to accomplish the tasks you have at hand. No matter what we do and how hard it can get, I think we can always find the strength and resources we need to do it. With a focus, cooperation, and – why not, sometimes – a little luck, anything can be done.

What do you like to do in your free time?
I love music; it has always been a big part of my life. Every aspect of it interests me, from the raw emotions of rock, indie, and electronic to the nuanced complexity of Brazilian music and classical. I’m an amateur bass player and music producer, and I enjoy experimenting on covers, writing (or trying to), and helping friends with little songs and jingles for their own projects. Of course, one of the things I miss the most is going to concerts and shows, and I can’t wait for them to start happening again!
