Vend is already improving the lives thousands of retailers in Australia. So it is with great pleasure we announce the opening this week of our first office there, in the beautiful city of Melbourne.
Our very own Australian sales manager, Fallon Savery, will be representing Vend on the ground.
Our goal – in Fallon’s words – is to “be the hottest POS in Australia!”, help more retailers switch to Vend, and continue growing our amazing network of partners and resellers who help us reach retailers all across the country.
In the meantime, meet Fallon. Vend’s friendly face in Australia.
1. Who are you?
I am Fallon – the girl at Vend with the odd name. I also go by (not limited to) the names of Allen, Sallon, Gallon, Falcon and Falloon.
2. What do you do at Vend?
My official title is ‘Sales Consultant’ – but to be honest Vend sells itself. So I mainly just consult potential customers on how Vend could best work for them and try my best to educate them on all of the awesome features Vend has to offer. I am currently managing the Australian market and intend to be spending A LOT of time here this year. (Moving does that.)
3. What were you doing before Vend?
Before Vend I worked in Citrix cloud computing division as a Project Coordinator. Before that I studied at university where I received a BBS with a double major in Finance and Business Information Systems.
4. Why Vend?
I work at Vend because it is awesome! Its makes the lives of retailers way better and I love being a part of that. The Vend team is pretty awesome, too.
5. Tell us something interesting about yourself.
Interesting about myself, apart from my name…? Well, I love pina coladas and am not really a fan of the rain. I love to travel and recently traveled around Europe with two great friends. And now I’m looking forward to exploring Australia while getting to know our awesome customers.
6. If Vend were a mythological creature, what would it be?
Vend would be a winged horse – like pegasus. According to the legend of Pegasus, a strike of the pegasus’ hoof on Earth brings inspiration. We’re all about inspiring retailers wherever we touch down. Which I guess is my job in Australia!
