Who are you?
I’m Jiri Kaan, I am from the Netherlands and I speak Dutch, German and English.
Tell me one fun fact about you
I laid the floor in the first office of Becanex.
Since when do you work for Becanex?
I have been putting my heart and soul into Becanex since it was first founded, in January 2019.
How would you describe your task in the company?
I am responsible for the account management in the company with a focus on business development. Furthermore, I am working on the development of our CBD oil in two big industries: pet feed and cosmetics. I am also helping Becanex towards a more digital driven business.
What are some challenges in your days at Becanex?
Automating the sales department and connecting it to our production department is very challenging sometimes. Another part is advising our customers, that have very individual wishes. It is challenging, but also fun to find a perfect solution together. Another tough project I am working on is CBD in chewing gum.
What do you like about Becanex?
My colleagues at Becanex are so passionate, hard-working, and intelligent. It is very motivating to be able to work with a team like that on an awesome product.
What excites you about our product?
I see huge possibilities for our product and all its molecules, and I feel like we only see the tip of the iceberg now. There is a huge potential in the minor cannabinoids that we can extract with our machine.
What was your biggest achievement in your (Becanex) career so far?
The biggest compliment that I have gotten so far is that people told me that I bring in a positive vibe at work.
Do you have a funny story to tell about you or your job? Any embarrassing moments?
I once moved 60 bags of biomass with a forklift that I just learned how to drive. I was really happy that everything went pretty smooth.
How do you spend your afternoon and evening after work?
I go out for dinner in Berlin, since it is so cheap here. Some days I do calisthenics or meet with some friends. I also enjoy spending time with my girlfriend.
What are your goals for the future of the company? What would you like to achieve with your team or which kind of products would you like to work on in the future?
My goals for the company is to keep finding ambitious partners that also see huge potential in the cannabinoids besides CBD and want to explore this path with us.
