Meet Us Monday: Quentin Payan, Strategic Partnership Manager

Because APEC is in Anaheim, CA this year - we are switching up our Meet Us Mondays to feature our Southern California team! Every Monday, we feature a different employee on our blog to give a little insight into Wurth Electronics.

This week, meet Quentin Payan, Strategic Partnership Manager for the west coast, located in our Milpitas, CA USA office.

What do you value most about Wurth Electronics?

I think it's the fact that everybody can become "somebody". Everybody has a chance to work their way up. If you are motivated, a hard worker and involved in your work, you can go really far with Wurth Electronics. And I love that!

How do you like to relax?

I actually do a lot of outdoor sports. Especially everything that people can qualify as "Xtrem" like freeride ski, surfing anddownhill bike, but also more "normal" sports like trail running, rugby, or riding bike.

I am also enjoying cooking at home for friends with a good bottle of wine. Cliché for a Frenchy, but it's what we like to do!

How has Wurth Electronics invested in your professional development?

Wurth Electronics has done a lot for me! I started as a trainee in France 5 years ago in the design team, and now I am working abroad as a Strategic Partnership Manager. I went from a student to living in a new country in only 3 years. They gave me the opportunity and the chance to show what I am able to do. Apparently it worked, because right now I am living a dream in the Silicon Valley.

If you had to delete all but 3 apps from your smartphone, which would you keep?

That is a tricky question for a millennial like me, but let's stay pragmatic:
