As Sales Consultant for Hannon Hill, Asif is responsible for developing new sales for Hannon Hill.

Let’s learn a little more about Asif!

How did you first learn about Hannon Hill?

I knew about Atlanta Tech Village and thought it was such a cool place. I found their job board online and Hannon Hill quickly caught my eye! I did some more research into the company and I knew it was a place where I wanted to start my career.

How has Hannon Hill helped you in your career development?

I graduated with a degree in Finance from Georgia State University, but always had a passion to work with and learn more about technology. Immersing myself in an environment that surrounded those concepts was the first step. I was able to quickly learn about content management systems and Cascade CMS. When I started, I was responsible for scheduling demos for our Sales Consultants, but I am now conducting demos myself. I am happy with the progression I have made so far and am looking forward to what I can do in the future!

What do you find most challenging about working at Hannon Hill?

Every day is a new challenge! I strive to make sales each day and some days are more successful than others. I don't let slow days get me down and am eager to work harder each day.

What does true leadership mean to you?

True leadership to me means leading by example. It is someone that can make hard decisions that are crucial to the success of the entire business and isn't above helping out wherever necessary.

What is your greatest achievement at Hannon Hill?

My greatest achievement at Hannon Hill is starting with limited knowledge of content management systems to now conducting product demonstrations weekly.

And now for some fun questions…

If you were stuck on an island what three things would you bring?

A friend, a radio (for music), and a boat.

What is your personal motto or mantra?

A quote by Charles Darwin, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change. I have learned in life that you have to constantly adapt to your surroundings. I believe in life you will always experience changes and how one reacts to them will define their success.

I am also a firm believer in the statement “If you do good things in life, good things will happen to you, if you do bad things, bad things will happen”

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you?

Leonardo DiCaprio

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was younger I always wanted to be a sanitation worker. I always thought they were so cool! Then I wanted to be a doctor, and in high school I wanted be an investment banker.
