1. Name, position, in SALESmanago since…
Tomasz Lipiec, Partner Manager, in SALESmanago since March 2021.
2. Coffee, workout, meditation – how do you start your work day and get ready for conquering the world?
I currently start the day by making a bottle of milk for my youngest daughter 🙂 but running and then oatmeal + coffee is an ideal combination for me.
I recommend getting up early at least once in the morning and running through the city, seeing how it wakes up, how it rises to life.
To smell the buns from the bakery, to see the sunrise – magic!
3. How did you find your way to your current role at SALESmanago?
I come from a traditional sales background, I worked as a retail and wholesale manager for the last 15 years, and I was a guest at home because I was traveling all over the country.
Starting at Salesmanago I found myself on the other side of the mirror! In the beginning, it was like black magic for me, but I joined Krystian Kuta’s team as SDR and I couldn’t have found a better place. I learned a lot and gained self-confidence, and after 9 months of work (as long as the pregnancy lasts, so the magic of numbers works :)) we were expecting the birth of our daughter Marcelinka. When I wanted to take paternity leave, our CEO Grzegorz said – no problem, but I can see you on your return in the partner department – the proposal was unobjectionable 🙂 Now I’m working with rock & roller Filip Kliszczyk and after so many years I’m home every day – what more could you want, just keep the music playing!
4. Which of the SALESmanago values speak to you the most?
I buy the whole thing, I don’t want to focus on specific aspects, but the company, from the people to the development opportunities, provides everything you need to be successful and to come to work with a smile on your face and not as a punishment.
I can honestly say that I feel great joy and pride to be part of SALESmanago’s journey to the top.
5. What three words would you use to describe yourself?
Empathetic, honest, patient
6. You are on a deserted island and you can choose one person and one thing from the company to be there with you. Who and what will it be and why?
I wouldn’t be able to make that choice, I have too many friends around to choose just one person, but using logic I would take any of the Lovely Pastrami Girls along with a pot of soup and buns 😀
7. What have you recently done for the first time in your life?
I have recently eaten raw ostrich meat and it is too fatty for me, and in terms of life, I have planned a parachute jump for my beloved’s birthday (I am also jumping to make her feel better, just shh, because she doesn’t know anything it’s supposed to be a surprise)so, this adventure is still ahead of us. So far the biggest adventure is 3 children and a dog, because after work I am never bored 🙂
