Fiberguide recently expanded our footprint to better serve our European customers. Marc Coenen, the first Europe-based Fiberguide employee, will support the company’s European distribution network. Fiberguide is working to expand our worldwide footprint, and this exciting new hire is a big step in that direction.

Marc has a Master of Science degree in Information Technology from the University of Technology Eindhoven in the Netherlands. Prior to joining Fiberguide, he served as Sales Manager Automotive Europe, Area Sales Manager, and Application Engineer at Therm-O-Disc. While all of this experience is undoubtedly important, it’s his belief that “If people like you, they’ll listen to you, but if they trust you they’ll do business with you” that certainly sets Marc Coenen apart from the crowd. It is also in line with Fiberguide’s core values of innovative design, outstanding customer service and unparalleled quality.

“After 12 years at my former company, I was looking for a new challenge in a different field,” Marc explains. “A job where I could learn again, pioneer, and bring added value to the company. Fiberguide offered me that unique position to set up the European sales locally.”

Marc’s goal is to expand Fiberguide’s footprint on the European Fiber Optics map—he’ll be working to grow the Fiberguide business significantly by discovering new accounts and working with our EU partner AMS Technologies. “As distributors sell products from several suppliers, they need to know they will have the support and backing of their vendors,” Marc says. “In my role, I will support them in order to get the inquiries awarded and ensure they have the tools needed to succeed.”

If determination is the secret to success, Fiberguide is poised to enjoy a whole new era of growth in Europe thanks to our new European Account Manager’s focus and skills.
