At WP Engine, we are guided and held accountable by our 5 core values: do the right thing, customer-inspired, where the best get better, built to last, and aspiring to lead, committed to giving back. As WP Engine employees, we always strive to make decisions with these values in mind. This way, we can continue to define and cultivate our company culture. By doing our part to ensure an enjoyable and fulfilling work environment, we are able to better deliver digital experiences for our customers.
In this series, we highlight a WP Engine employee embodying those core values. ‘Where the best get better’ means that as employees we celebrate personal and company-wide successes, nourish personal growth and encourage one another to succeed. Luis Saucedo, Enterprise and Agency Sales, has grown individually during his tenor at WP Engine-in turn, he has helped WP Engine expand its global presence.
Luis has worked in the WP Engine Sales Department for nearly 2 years. During that time he has been promoted twice. Initially, Luis worked as a Sales Development Representative, working closely with clients to answer questions via chat, phone, or other contact form channels. After three months during which he gained valuable knowledge of the sales process, technology, and company values, Luis was promoted to Account Executive.
In the Account Executive role, Luis worked with small/medium sized businesses as well as with small agencies. It was in this role that he noticed existing organic growth and additional opportunities in the Latin American market. He presented his ideas to WP Engine leadership who encouraged him to execute on his ideas while using his best judgment.
Finally, Luis was promoted to Enterprise Account Executive, where he works with the largest companies in the world, build digital relationships with some of the awarded agencies in the digital space, and continues to foster WP Engine relationships in the LatAm market.
“By providing me with the tools and the feedback necessary to accelerate my growth path, WP Engine empowered me to execute on my ideas and build partnerships with agencies and brands all over Latin America.” -Luis Saucedo
Inspired by Leaders
Luis attributes much of his success to WP Engine leadership which has supported and encouraged him to take risks and evolve. This encouragement has inspired Luis to become a leader at WP Engine himself. He hopes to spearhead more opportunities in Latin America and grow the WP Engine LatAm team in the future.
“At WP Engine, any idea is valuable. Ideas are very likely to become reality if there’s enough heart and effort tied to them. Leadership here is all about passion, delivering more than expected and moving fast.”
