Career journeys @Oracle Benelux: Francis, Apps Sales Rep

Oracle is organised for success

Today we are discussing working at Oracle with Francis, based in Belgium, and working as an Applications Sales Representative for CRM, ERP and EPM. Francis joined Oracle in 2012 as a Business Development Manager. As of June this year he moved to an Application Sales Representative role focusing on Public Sector, Utilities, Media and Communication in Belgium and Luxembourg. Before joining Oracle he gained multiple years of Sales experience at different IT companies.
