Michael’s Fumex journey from production to export sales

Meet Michael Clayton-Reed, export sales manager at Fumex’s headquarters in Skellefteå. He started his journey at Fumex about six years ago when he decided to join our production team.

– I first moved to Skellefteå in 2012, as my girlfriend wanted to be closer to her family. I had never worked in an industrial environment before and was eager to try something new. Then, it did not take long for me to find out how much I enjoyed it, says Michael.

Michael, or Mike as his colleagues frequently call him, originally hails from New Zealand but has lived in Norway and Sweden for the past 14 years. Now, he is taking the next step in his career as he moves from production to join our export sales team, where he will work with customers in England, France, Italy, and Spain.

– I have probably built every filter there is and already have great knowledge about every product that we offer. So, working with export sales is the natural step for me as I want to challenge myself in a new role, Michael continues.

Michael has stayed at Fumex for the past six years because he felt there was a good chance for further personal and professional development, as no day is the same as the other, and you learn something new every day.

– The people here at Fumex are really good to work with, and we have a lot of fun together. It’s a great environment to be a part of, and I look forward to seeing the results of everything going on, such as the construction of our new headquarters, says Michael.

It is easy to say that Michael has found his place at Fumex and here in Skellefteå, where he balances work with family life and outdoor activities.

– I like the changing seasons in the north, as I can go skiing in the winter and golf in the summer. But of course, being at home with my family is what I enjoy the most, Michael concludes.
