UNTHA staff spotlight - Remi Boilley
Name: Rémi Boilley
Job title: Sales and business development manager
- What does your role entail?
I am responsible for the sale of our recycling shredders, in France, Scandinavia, Benelux and Africa.
- How long have you been with the company?
I have been working for UNTHA for ten years now and am lucky to have had a number of roles within the company. I was firstly employed as a technical designer, then application engineer and now sales manager.
- What’s the best thing about your job?
Sales managers have the chance to meet a lot of interesting people around the world, understand their applications and help them bring their projects to life. The relationships with our customers are also often long-term and open-minded – and always based on trust – which is very satisfying.
- Of all the places you’ve visited during your time with UNTHA, which has been your favourite?
I really enjoyed my last trip to Morocco, visiting a customer shredding waste wood. I was really impressed with the beautiful beach, the outstanding food and the warm welcome of the people we met.
- For you, which is UNTHA’s stand-out shredder?
It’s difficult to say, as I like finding the right shredder adapted to the specific needs of every customer. Our machines are so configurable, the possibilities are almost endless, so it is quite exciting playing a part in devising a shredding solution that they sometimes don’t think is even possible. If I had to pick a favourite model, I would say the RS100, because it is a powerful and versatile four shaft industrial shredder.
- What’s been your biggest work achievement, since joining UNTHA?
I am proud to have developed our business presence with a lot of partners in France, Africa and Benelux. Having them bring new orders to UNTHA every year means that the hard-work and effort spent training and supporting them over the past few years, is paying off.
- Describe UNTHA in three words:
Comprehension (of the needs of the customer), competence (to answer these needs) and confidence (that the solution will work for a long time).
And finally some more light-hearted questions:
- What’s your favourite food?
Besides French food – which will always have a special place in my heart (and stomach!) – I am fond of all Asian cuisine, especially Thai.
- How do you relax at the weekend?
For me, living in Austria and especially Salzburg is great for outdoor activities, from hiking in the mountains to cycling along the rivers and lakes. On rainy days, I like to play music on my guitar or my drums.
- If you were stranded on a desert island, what is the one thing you couldn’t live without?
A good bottle of wine!
