Team Retail Western Cape Account Manager
As the first employee, Talana has been part of Sungrid Group since its inception and is as passionate about the company as she is about the enormous possibilities portable (solar) power holds for empowering Africa and its people.
Born and bred in Cape Town, Talana discovered her knack for sales quite by chance. Building on this skill, Talana went on to gather extensive sales and business development experience across multiple industries including the commercial property and premium office furniture environments.
A naturally enquiring mind and thirst for continuous learning and growth, motivated Talana to complete a Business Management Course through UNISA. These new found tools, coupled with her natural ability to organise and streamline processes, has seen Talana delivering enormous value across the entire company from administration and operations through to marketing and finance.
As Account Manager, Talana’s flair for building and maintaining positive customer relationships renders her a perfect fit. Talana works exclusively with Paul in Sungrid Group’s retail team to continue expanding their footprint within the industry.
“I am proud and excited to be part of Sungrid Group,” says Talana. “On the back of a very successful few years, we are poised for even more significant growth and I look forward to being apart of The Sungrid Group’s revolutionary impact on society.”
