Sofia Mele – Railway Key Account Manager

Hello, I am Sofia Mele

  • How long have you been working at Clerprem? How has your career evolved?

I have been working at Clerprem for 9 years. I started as a sales assistant and now I’m Key Account Manager in the Railways division.

  • What do you currently do, how has your role changed over the years?

I currently deal with relations and negotiations with internal and external customers, drafting offers for new projects and finding new business. The first few years I worked at Clerprem, I simply gathered information on costs and technical feasibility to formulate offers. Over the years, I have specialised in nurturing the relationship and building trust with our partners, to guide and convince them to always choose Clerprem.

  • What would you recommend to a young person aspiring to reach the position you currently hold?

Always be curious to learn something new, preferably in a different field from what you have studied. Broaden your horizons and skills: in the fast-paced, globalised world we live in today, you need to be versatile, proactive and inclined to change.

  • What are you most passionate about in your job?

Working in a close-knit team where everyone’s contribution is always valued, with the awareness that the work done today is fundamental to guaranteeing a successful tomorrow.
