Rob Lerner joined VIAVI (then JDS Uniphase) in 2013 as Sales Director in Northern Europe. Now just two years later, he lives in Singapore and is the Vice President of Sales for the Location Intelligence product line for APAC, Japan, China and Korea. Rob’s rapid rise is due to his ability to seize an opportunity, put in the hard work and build a winning team – resulting in increased market traction and business growth in his region. Rob also credits VIAVI’s willingness to provide him with the structure and support he needed to succeed and then recognize his accomplishments through promotions and increased responsibility.
VIAVI is a company that is challenging the status quo in many areas and that often means advising the customer to take a path they may not have initially chosen. In the end, our job is to ensure their success by delivering innovative solutions.
One of the things that Rob finds most rewarding is the consultative approach that VIAVI is taking with customers. “I also appreciate the opportunity to work with so many people who are smart, decisive and willing to take risks. Find an issue, make a plan, form a solution, and move forward!”
