Here at LinguaLinx, words and languages aren’t just our business, they’re our passion too. Being successful means having an awesome team of people behind our work. That team just got a little bigger. Please, join us in welcoming the newest member of our Sales team – James Hurley. James joined our team in March of 2018. We took a minute to sit down with James to get to know him a little better.


Welcome! Let’s start with “Why LinguaLinx?”

I was looking for an opportunity to continue my sales career in a new field and LinguaLinx was the perfect fit. Once I saw first-hand the company culture and team dynamic, I knew it was the right place for me.

 

What excites you most about working in sales?

The relationships – Sales not only provides you with the opportunity to interact with new people each day, it is also very rewarding to know you’ve been influential in helping your client grow their business.

 

Before you started here at LinguaLinx, what were your thoughts and perceptions of the language translation industry?

Before Lingualinx I had a very elementary view of the industry. It is easy to overlook the time and coordination that goes in to translating a simple document. LinguaLinx has opened my eyes to the many translation services that help businesses reach new regions and cultures each day.

 

What do you like most about Upstate New York?

The location – Upstate New York has some of the most beautiful Lakes and Mountains in the country and being only a short drive from NYC gives you the best of both worlds.

 

Are you bilingual?

No.

 

If you could learn any other language, which would you learn and why?

Spanish. I believe it would be the most beneficial and rewarding as Spanish becomes more prevalent each day in the U.S.

 

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

When not working I enjoy any chance to get outdoors. You’ll most likely find me on the golf course, in the garage or spending time with friends and family.

 

Where is your favorite place you’ve visited and why?

I really enjoyed the Dominican Republic. I have traveled their twice and nothing beats the beautiful beaches and culture!

 

Tell us one random fact about you.

I am a big classic car enthusiast. I recently restored a 1953 Ford F-100 pickup truck with my father and brother.
