Nick, you work as Business Development Manager at Greencarrier Freight Services in Shanghai. Can you tell me about your background, leading up to where you are today?
I have participated in an academic course in Supply Chain Management and I have an Academy Profession degree in International Marketing Management. In September 2013, after I got my degree, I started working at Greencarrier Freight Services in Denmark. I worked at our Danish office for two and a half years, in both operation and in sales. One day, my Manager offered me a job in our office in Shanghai. And of course – I couldn’t say no! The 1st of September 2016, I have worked at Greencarrier for exactly 3 years. My main responsibility as Business Development Manager is to develop all of our home markets, but I have the responsibility for the Danish tradelane.
When you got the offer to start working in Shanghai – what made you say yes?
I have always wanted to work outside Denmark and to see the world. I love to challenge myself, and when I got this opportunity I was not able to say no. Just the idea of living in a country that has been through a riveting change during the last 30 years. That was something I wanted to experience and learn from. Therefore, when I got this opportunity I just grabbed it!
