Martin has recently joined team Toby to launch the French branch of Toby! Let’s take a minute to get familiar with one of Toby’s newest faces.
Welcome Martin! We are really happy to have you in our team. How did you end up at Toby and what are you going to do here?
I discovered the concept of delivering tailor-made dog food to your home by chance. I decided to do some research on this market, which I think had great potential. That’s how I discovered Toby, a Dutch startup in full expansion in the Netherlands. I will be country success manager France to allow Toby to expand its market to France, a country with 7 million dogs waiting for their own tailor-made food.
You’ve been working here since the start of January. What do you like most about working at Toby?
First of all, I am delighted to be part of the expansion of a startup in my country. Moreover, being part of a startup allows you to carry out many varied missions while being close to the whole team. The working environment is great with a young, dynamic and motivated team. What I like most is the opportunity to grow and be proud of our products and the added value they bring to customers.
What do you really excel at?
A lot of my work is based on marketing and I think I am good at it. I can understand what the customer wants and how he wants it, I think it is very important for the company to have this vision.
How have you changed as a person since you moved to Amsterdam?
I became a great cyclist! More seriously, this experience allows me to develop my English skills and to be more autonomous.
If you were a dog, what breed would you have been?
A French bulldog of course! I don’t forget my roots.
