Who’s That Noddie? Volume 3

NODDIES_header

We are back with another fun installment of Who’s That Noddie? This time we are talking with Renee Bihler who is our Business Sales Specialist. Renee is beyond awesome in this role, because this lady is always smiling and ready to make new friends! (Pretty sure if we knew her in 5th grade…we would want to share a BFF necklace with her.) Building business-to-business relationships in our company is so important to us, and Renee is the perfect person to make this happen.

Why do you love your job?

 I love that this position allows me to build and maintain relationships. Not only with my business-to-business contacts, but also with everyone here at Corporate, and even out in Naperville. I really enjoy interacting with such diverse customers as well as all the various departments within the company and beyond.

What would you do if you won a MILLION dollars?

If I won a million dollars, I would buy a house, pay off my parent’s house, and take a trip someplace I might not be able to go otherwise, like the Seychelles, Africa or Fiji.

What’s your favorite Nod memory?

Taking home the prized Sweaty Award for last year’s holiday sweater contest!

What’s something unique or surprising about you?

In 2011, I blindly joined a “dance” group with 20 strangers. There were two requirements for joining: No knowledge of anyone in the group and no prior dance experience. We practiced twice a week with a choreographer and at the end of 3 months, we performed in front of 750 people at the Park West. It was one of the scariest yet most rewarding experiences I have ever had.

What do you love most about working for The Land of Nod?

I love that I can come to work feeling empowered to do what’s best for the customer. I also love how The Land of Nod treats their employees. It is great working for a company that values their employees and makes coming to work fun.  

How is your role impactful to the company?

I believe that the relationships I establish and continue to foster have a great impact on the company. Typically, Business Sales customers purchase in bulk and for multiple locations, oftentimes in places where our products might not be showcased or known about. I think of my role as being one that helps to introduce our brand all over the U.S. and beyond. 

What's your favorite Nod product?

At the moment it’s a toss-up between the You Say Coffee, I Say Play Table and the Circulation Chest.  Both are extremely attractive and versatile pieces for any home.
