Of his appointment, Jordy says: “During my years working with JAS I have witnessed the company continuously grow and develop itself – JAS today is vastly different then JAS 16 years ago. My long tenure and experience on both sides of the Atlantic will allow me to contribute toward growing the Pharma & Healthcare vertical, and I am truly looking forward to this exciting new opportunity.”

This past March, JAS Brazil held a sales meeting focusing on teamwork and customer service.

As a part of the event, the commercial team was divided into five teams and challenged with a scenario that required them to price a BID, do contract analysis, perform a detailed presentation of the solutions, and propose JAS services. The top-performing groups were presented with a reward.

Additionally, a presentation given by Mayra Caetano (Sylvamo Brasil Supply Chain Manager) emphasized the importance of paying attention to details, the quality of service, and the importance of listening to the customer. In addition to the challenge presented to the commercial teams, the presentation reinforced the importance of teamwork.  

Of the event, Ana Ribeiro, Marketing Analyst at JAS Brazil, said, “At JAS, people make the difference, and the concepts of good practices shared at the event will be reflected in both our external and internal services. Furthermore, at JAS we increasingly seek to improve our performance and care for high-quality customer experience.”

Thank you to everyone who helped this event come together; the team looks forward to the next one!


Como na JAS as Pessoas Fazem a Diferença e o lema do nosso time é ‘TeamWork’, estruturamos o evento com dinâmicas voltadas para o dia-a-dia, e levamos nossa equipe comercial a colocar a mão na massa, dividimos nossa equipe em 5 grupos onde cada um recebeu um desafio para construir uma solução, (precificar BID, Analise de contrato, apresentação detalhada das Soluções e Serviços JAS) o grupo com melhor performance foi premiado com o troféu para agradecer a dedicação, a gestão de tempo e soluções criativas propostas.

A Palestra sobre o Olhar Do Cliente, ministrado por Mayra Caetano ( Supply Chain Manager Sylvamo Brasil) reforçou sobre a importância de dar mais atenção aos detalhes, focar no diferencial, na qualidade do serviço e o principal: ouvir o cliente. Somado os estímulos para aperfeiçoamento técnico e de atendimento que foram abordados, o evento também ressaltou sobre a força do ‘TeamWork’ e como o alinhamento entre Comercial, Operações, Produto, Financeiro, Jurídico, BID e Qualidade é de extrema importância para um resultado efetivo.

O encontro proporcionou ao Time Sales JAS BR um momento para ressignificar nossa forma de atendimento, e assim, juntos conseguirmos nos posicionar de maneira mais assertiva na oferta de serviços, que não só atendem mais vão além da expectativa de nossos clientes. NA JAS as pessoas fazem a diferença, o TeamWork e as boas práticas compartilhadas no evento serão refletidas em nosso atendimento externo e interno, onde cada vez mais buscamos formas inovadoras e nos preocupamos com a experiência do cliente.

Agradecemos a todos que se dedicaram para realização do evento, aos participantes e os avaliadores da banca, e estamos ansiosos para a 2º edição do Sales Meeting JAS BR! Até breve
