A chat with Jono, Sales Engineer for Ash Air

The people of Ash Air is what makes our company great. We have a world of experience behind us with all kinds of people from many backgrounds.

The one thing we all have in common is that we are passionate about what we do and love new challenges. Each day brings us new opportunities to grow, both as individuals and professionals.

Here we chat to our Waikato Sales Engineer, Jonathan Young,

What excites you about your role?

 What excites me the most is the diversity of applications I get to work on at any given time. I am continuously learning about new processes and production methods. Never a mundane moment!


What are the priorities in your job as a Sales Engineer?

My top priority is my customers. I consider myself a business partner rather than a supplier and take great pride in adding value to my customers.


Tell us a typical day in the life?

My days are never the same, this is part of the charm for me. What stands out is travelling the New Zealand country side. Why sit in an office when you can enjoy the fresh air and stunning views!

What is some advice for someone thinking about a career in this sort of industry?

I would say jump in and don’t overthink it. At Ash Air you are surrounded by experienced people, happy to help and pass on their knowledge. There is always someone you can lean on!

If you could have dinner with three inspirational people, dead or alive, who would they be and why?

I would love to share a meal with the likes of Ronnie Coleman, Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods. These guys have faced multiple failures in the beginning of their careers and yet through discipline and refusing to accept defeat, went on to became the world’s best!
