Weiwei Zhang

Sales Executive – China

I joined ANZCO four years ago in a project role doing in-market research about China. From there I became a sales coordinator supporting beef and lamb sales to China before taking up my Sales Executive role in October 2018.

My progression in the company has allowed me to understand the primary industry supply chain which aligns perfectly with my degree and career goals. The project I worked on gave me opportunity to explore customer demand and preferences along with trends for beef and lamb in China. In my next role I got the opportunity to understand ANZCO’s export trading while working with relevant stakeholders. This provided a solid foundation to grow my confidence and ability to handle a wide range of situations for the executive role.

Since I joined the business I’ve seen a number of changes that have improved my role and wider the business including the use of a tool to help us optimise the sales and planning process, which gives us improved information for better discussion and decision making; and a change to a functional focus providing us all with a clearer picture to achieve common targets.

Two people have been especially instrumental in my development in the business – Tim Raines Head of Sales and George Guo Sales Manager China. They have given me the space to work out my own style and they have both helped and acknowledged my effort and growth. Their approach and encouragement to my development has shaped the way I’m working with the new sales coordinator where I aim to guide and encourage independent thinking, along with a willingness to face challenges.

I enjoy the meat industry where people work hard to make sure every product is the best quality and is delivered correctly.

I’m passionate about delivering our meat to China so more people can enjoy ANZCO products.

Our products are sourced from nature, and I have a role to support industry growth from global demand in a sustainable way.
