DLL, a global provider of asset based financial solutions, recently welcomed the first group of Generation Next recruits to the organization. The program is designed to attract high potential young professionals with the interest and commitment necessary to have a successful career in sales.
“We are excited about this new approach to bring young professionals into the fold in a way that shows a clear development path right from the start,” said Sean McManus, VP Human Resources, Americas. “Our first participants bring diverse perspectives and fresh thinking to DLL—we are learning as much from them as they are from us.”
The Generation Next pilot has been developed in direct alignment with the company’s Office Technology business. Over the past 25 years, this global business unit has successfully navigated every challenging economic cycle in order to continually support the growth of its partners in the office equipment and technology industries. The Gen Next program is intended to invest in developing young sales talent to continue to support DLL’s rapidly growing business in this segment.
“The key to our success has always been industry specialization and our ability to attract and retain a world class sales organization to develop long term relationships with our customers and help them grow, said Bob Hunter, SVP, US Sales. ”Our current commercial organization has over 700 years of combined experience and it is the right time to combine the industry knowledge of our top performers with the fresh ideas of our young high potentials to expand our commercial organization and develop future leaders.”
DLL’s investment in expanding its team of field sales and inside sales account executives clearly demonstrates its long term commitment to the Office Technology business. It also provides the resources necessary to continue to enhance the support of our existing partners and develop new programs within the office equipment and technology markets.
DLL believes that to sustain the leasing industry over the long term it must actively promote vendor finance to students and recent graduates and offer relevant, practical experiences—enabling top talent to thrive and remain in the industry.
