Super car salesman......

Today I had a chance to meet a super car salesman. Everyone in the motor car industry would have known him as Randy. He has been working faithfully with his employer, Edran Otomobil Nasional Berhad since the company started in 1985, selling our Malaysian local national car, Proton. And this great veteran salesperson has been selling cars for almost 40 years. Though he has passed his retirement age four years ago, his company still renewed his employment contract because he is still very aggressive in selling. He was proud to review his age as 60 today.

He gave me his prestigious elite company name card which was specially printed in platinum colour. Their company has four tiers class of salesman. They have the white, silver, gold and the highest is platinum, which are all imprinted on their name cards. To be recognised as platinum member, one has to sell more than 150 cars in a year. Randy is one of the few who holds this rank. Last year alone, he sold more than 200 cars beating many who are much more younger than him. Just imagine, one year has 365 days and yet he could sell this amount of car at 200, averaging one sale in two days. I salute to my unbelievable friend.

If you look at Randy who is basically a very simple man, soft spoken and casually attired. I asked him his secret of success. This was what he told me... Be responsible, faithful, loyal, honest and prepare to work hard. These principles of life helps him to build countless numbers of clients and friends who willingly recommend and introduce him for repeated sales years after years. His personal success leads him to raise three equally capable sons, the eldest is a Medical Specialist residing in Australia, the second is an IT Engineer and the third is still studying for his degree. They are all proud of the father for being a super car salesman.
