Meet the team | LaureEva

The goal of these articles is to introduce the members of our team.
Here is LaureEva Staron, Sales Manager, who joined Per Angusta 1 year ago!

Let’s start with a quick Chinese portrait!

If you were a dish?
Parmigiana, mamma mia! 😋 

A destination?
Madrid 🇪🇸

A famous character?
The Orangina bottle! (do you know the old ad?)

A tool? 🛠
A stewpot… for slow-cooked meats.

What’s your last impactful or impulse purchase?
Oh god, that would be Zalando again! I know I need to stop but this website is so cooool… Loving it! 🤩 

What did you do before joining Per Angusta?

After 7 years as a Buyer in Retail in Madrid 💃 working for Dia and in London 💂‍♂️ for Tesco, I went back to France for a new challenge, in e-retail this time. I was heading the Buying and the BtoB teams at Jadeo Group, European e-leader in fancy dress costumes & accessories 🎉!

The fun part of the story is that we were also developing our own range of costumes…

Now maybe you get the Orangina bottle thing, right? 😉

What is your current role within the Tech Team?

I joined Per Angusta 1 year ago as a Sales Manager. I am responsible for developing our international and national business with mid-caps, multinational and public organizations.

My role is to meet Buyers and Tool & Process Managers, understand their specific needs and show them how Per Angusta could help them with their pain points. Another key thing I love is to explain them, along with our Solution experts, how our Tool could precisely meet these needs.

I am keen in discussing with Buyers from everywhere in the world, with very different backgrounds but with very similar needs than we can respond to. So great to see them excited about the benefits that our Solution can bring them on their daily jobs!

Tell us about a project that you are particularly proud to have participated in Per Angusta?

I absolutely loved participating to our internal hackathon during our 2019 team building! First, concept is cool: for 1 day, we are divided in few teams consisted of different departments members. Each team presents his project at the end of the day and get to vote for the best project that will then be implemented. Then, location was great: a lovely Gite in the south of France…

But, above all, my favorite: spend a full day with experts in their field, sharing different standpoints & ideas and working all together on a project that would benefit us all.

Being part of this Tech universe, always a step ahead, is amazing. But it is even greater when you are surrounded with passionate people, full of great ideas and with amazing problem-solving skills.

Why did you want to join Per Angusta?

I had always bought to resell, in a very end-customer and result-oriented environment. And I really enjoyed it. At some point I felt like focusing more on the Selling side of things, keeping this connection with the Buying part. So, when I saw this opportunity to combine Buying & Selling, in an international environment and with great team spirit people, I did not hesitate and joined Per Angusta! And I managed to get the Tech universe as the icing on the cake 👌

Come on, you can tell us … 😉 what’s your hidden talent or something you’re particularly proud of?

I use my light-hearted, spontaneous humor as often as I can to make people comfortable, which - according to my colleagues- contributes towards building a true team spirit.
