As the CEO of Rosland Capital, and with long-standing involvement in the precious metal industry, Marin Aleksov has grown accustomed to being swift with his decision-making. Responsible for leading and advising a nimble team of sales people, Aleksov understands the importance of agility within an extremely dynamic market. In a recent interview with Ideamensch, Aleksov touched on his leadership within the Rosland Capital team and what keeps his entrepreneurial mind at work.
It is common knowledge, especially in business, that a team is only as strong as its weakest member. Luckily for Rosland Capital, Marin Aleksov spends ample time advising and strengthening internal teams and sales people, both new and seasoned. Even though Aleksov practices an open door policy with the newest members of the team, he prefers to get out of his office and spend time with the sales team. Not only does this provide essential learning opportunities and knowledge-sharing with the team, but it allows Aleksov to better advise and understand the day-to-day, ground level changes within the market.
Marin Aleksov is no stranger to emphasizing the empowerment and strength of the Rosland Capital team, specifically at the individual level. Aleksov acknowledged that a main component to growing a business, and a pivotal role in Rosland Capital’s success, lies within recognizing the potential in people. As opposed to multiple versions of the assumptive ideal employee, the diversity of the Rosland Capital team is a key strength within the current standing and the future of the company.
“I try to see the potential in people, rather than just focusing on their history and background. That has helped me build a world-class group from disparate backgrounds, rather than an assembly of people with matching resumes.”
Leaning on these talented people surrounding him, Marin Aleksov utilizes the Rosland Capital team to enact and bring life to his own entrepreneurial ideas.
Much like the advisement role Marin Aleksov takes on within Rosland Capital, he also takes the time to provide insight on how he would advise his younger self. A potential note to other budding entrepreneurs, Aleksov made a point to stress the importance of self-trust and self-awareness. According to Aleksov, “I’d tell my younger self to trust himself and strike off on his own earlier. We all feel insecure some of the time – we lack confidence in our own abilities – and we wait for right moment to try something new, which may never come.”
