Q&A with Antun Scurla – Sales Manager at Ecleva
We have a chat with Antun Scurla, Sales Manager at ECLEVA.
- How long have been working for ECLEVA?
- What was your path here?
I was initially introduced to Patrick in late 2012 to provide Sales Training and Mentoring Services. The relationship grew from there. Prior to that I held a number of Consulting, Direct Sales and Management roles in both local and global IT companies.
- Where did you grow up?
On the mean streets of Balmain in the late 60s.
- What was your dream job when you were young?
Astronaut or Stage Coach driver – I was never able to choose.
- What does your role involve?
I’m responsible for driving revenue growth at ECLEVA. That means working closely with Patrick, Martin, Benny and all our CDM’s to identify areas where we can continue to increase the value of our offerings to our existing and potential clients and ensuring that that value is delivered.
- What do you do outside work?
I play guitar. I play computer games and I study the mysteries of human behavior (mostly within my own family).
- Most interesting job you’ve had in your life and why?
All the work I’ve done has been interesting. I honestly can’t pick the most interesting. I can tell you the most boring (cleaning bricks).
- What’s it like in the office?
Great. We’re a very focused and motivated team. The organisation is very open and collaborative, and we literally work together in an enterprising way to innovate and simplify everything we do for ourselves and our clients.
- What motivates you?
Seeing a good plan deliver the fruits of its promise and, as a result, actually make a difference to how people do their work.
- What’s one of the favourite songs you’ve listened to lately and why?
Andrew Jackson Jihad (AJJ) – Small Red Boy. I like songs that most people might find “uncomfortable” but nonetheless deliver truths about the human condition. This is a great example and is executed beautifully.
