@AcerAfrica Announces New Head of Commercial - Vic Brits #SouthAfrica #SSA
Early career
Brits ‘first position in sales was selling high-tech Test & Measurement equipment used to analyze and maintain process control and IT systems. Brits say, “This role taught me to apply my technical knowledge in order for me to more effectively manage complex sales cycle while learning to better understand customer needs in real-world environments. This was my first introduction to customer-centric solutions.

Brits experienced a transformation early on in his fast-developing career shortly after Compaq merged with Digital Equipment Corporation [DEC] in 1998. The transition from X86 systems to Unix system sales, was a significant technology advancement, expanding both, his technical knowledge, as well as his ability to understand the complexities surrounding integrated systems.

Brits still attribute this time in his career as one of his highlights, next to relocating to Lagos for two years in the early 2000s to set up a new subsidiary for HP in Nigeria, “This experience presented a definite challenge as I was exposed to different cultures and new business environments which laid a solid foundation for my future forays in cross-continental trade.” 
Values and mission
Brits say, “Being part of Acer, a globally established technology brand, has definitely encouraged and motivated me to apply my past experiences to further enhance what Acer has already instituted thus far.”

With this in mind, Brits believe that the most important factor in building a team is selecting people with the right attitude. Everything else can be taught, but the right attitude is an integral requirement for successful collaboration in a results-driven environment.

“To me, success is not only achieving business and personal objectives that I have set for myself but also being able to maintain a healthy work/life balance in the process,” he adds. Brits practice positivity throughout their professional and personal life and believe that positive thoughts lead to positive actions and progressive outcomes.

Acer Africa is delighted to welcome Brits to the local family and looks forward to seeing what the brand has to offer in the near future. For more information, follow Acer Africa on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
