This is 91Social’s Senior Business Development Manager, Saurabh Thakur. He is an integral part of our office culture and can be considered the engine room of our sales department. Saurabh joined us in 2020 after he worked as a Digital Marketing Executive in his previous company.
Interestingly, Saurabh was placed in his previous company by 91Social as part of our staff augmentation services. Prior to this, Saurabh went through several starts and stops in his career which he considers a major learning. When asked about why he shifted to a new role at 91Social, Saurabh said “I think I have always wanted to do sales. Yes, I achieved great success and immense learning in digital marketing. But doing sales has always been my forte. I love talking to people, I love convincing them. This is why when 91Social offered me this role, I was sure I wanted to come here.”
After facing a few challenges on the strategic part initially, Saurabh finally cracked the code and started to bring in customers in abundance. About his journey so far at 91Social, he says “There have been ups and downs, but it has been an incredible experience. I have been given a free hand to explore my strategies and gauge what business is good for us. This freedom is something every individual in the industry looks for.”
Talking about leadership, he says, “I have always been supported by the leaders. Hubert’s knowledge of sales is exemplary and I know I can go to him with anything at any time and he will help out. Gaurav and Sunil, have been the two pillars of support in my journey here. There have been phases where I could not bring any customers. But they always backed me due to which I bounced back. I am looking to achieve so much more here and become an evolved version of Saurabh Thakur.”
