We’re pleased to introduce our new Senior Sales Manager Carl Johan Anderfors. He has many years of experience in technical sales roles and key account management within the electronics and embedded industry. He has worked in both smaller startup companies and larger corporations.
It’s his love for the mix of technical discussions and commercial discussions with customers that makes us certain we will find success together. Welcome to Expando Carl!
What did you do before you joined Expando?
All my work life I have been working with Technical sales roles and key account management in the electronics and embedded industry, both for smaller startup companies but also larger corporations. I started as a FAE but realized quickly that I also wanted to be responsible for the commercial piece of the business.
Tell us a little about your journey to Expando and what are you most looking forward to in your new role here?
I met with Otto and the Expando team through a common friend that introduced me to Expando. He thought I would be a good fit for the open sales role at Expando. I like the environment of being part of a small company where decisions can be made fast.
I really enjoy the mix of technical discussions and commercial discussions with our customers.
What do you love most about your job role?
I like the mix of technical and commercial discussions and I think it suits me really good.

What’s the best piece of career advice you’ve ever been given?
Don’t lose your interest in technology, keep that focus.
What do you enjoy doing as soon as you have spare time?
