At Kinnek, we're working hard to make purchasing painless for small businesses.
That's why our team is building an online marketplace to replace the time-consuming process of offline purchasing. We help small businesses save time and resources by making it easy to connect with multiple suppliers, compare customized quotes, research products and manage supplier relationships in one place.
We're also empowering suppliers to bring their salesforce completely online. Kinnek helps suppliers acquire, retain, manage and now process payments for their customers. It's transforming how they do business!
Together, we’re proud to serve and empower the small business community in achieving their business goals by not only making their purchasing experience simpler - but better.
Our sales team is dedicated to helping new suppliers get the most out of Kinnek. Similarly our accounts team helps on-board and optimize the supplier experience. That's why this month Kinnek has been extremely focused on building out and growing our sales team. A B2B task-force, our sales team connects to prospective suppliers and helps them discover the benefits of using Kinnek.
New Support, New Growth
Our two most recent additions to the account executive team, Kayvon Touran and Caroline Germine, are already busy talking to suppliers and walking them through how Kinnek can help their business.
Kayvon Touran joined Kinnek earlier this month and has already hit the ground running.
“Working with and learning from the cool people at Kinnek and being part of a dynamic team that's tackling a legitimate problem in today's marketplace are a couple of reasons why I joined”.
He's primarily focused on engaging existing suppliers and helping new suppliers discover Kinnek.
Being a part of the Kinnek team means you'll be collaborating a ton!
Caroline German was hire No. 2 on the Kinnek sales team. As you can imagine, that's kind of a big deal!
“Kinnek helps suppliers grow their book of business and create a community... As an Account Executive, I get to help them understand the benefits of our marketplace.”
Like Kayvon, she focuses on supplier engagement and retention and getting the word out about Kinnek.
Being a new member of a new team has given Caroline the opportunity to have a direct impact on the growth of the business.
Jamie DeGiaimo, our newest and very first account manager, is helping existing Kinnek suppliers discover product updates and features, like our payments processing tool.
“I work with paying supplier accounts to ensure they're managing their sales and marketing efforts efficiently... I’m constantly giving and getting feedback and working with the product team to improve the supplier experience.”
As the gatekeeper between suppliers and our product team, Jamie's main goal is to help our suppliers grow on Kinnek.
We're excited to work with suppliers in the following industries (and beyond):
- Craft brewing;
- Hotels and Guest Houses;
- Snack Foods
