Getting To Know Astrid Giffon

SAHARA Las Vegas is proud to employ the most talented, service-focused team members in the industry. We invite you to learn more about Astrid Giffon, Senior National Sales Manager at SAHARA.
Sahara Las Vegas

What’s something you are proud of as part of the SAHARA Sales Team?
As a member of the SAHARA Sales Team, I am proud of the initiative we take, our attitude, and our resourcefulness. As a community, Las Vegas has endured many challenges during this time. We were able to take advantage of each other’s strengths, taking a grassroots approach at delivering information and connecting with our clients, and working with our Convention and Visitors Authority to build a stronger and more strategic partnership.


Are you a sports fan? Who are your favorite teams?
Uuhhh, Yeah! Dallas Cowboys, New York Yankees (I know, you have questions…It’s too long of a story, but I’ll buy you a cold one if you’re interested in hearing it).

***I also support the Arizona Coyotes as well as our VGK and Vegas Raiders (root, root for the home teams).


What motivates you at work?
It’s all about alignment. I believe in our company’s core values, our ownership team’s commitment to our success, and the role I play in it all. We’re a family and you show up for the family! Also, I am extremely competitive and I don’t have a “no/can’t” kind of attitude.


If you could give a piece of advice to someone just starting their career in sales, what would it be?
More often than not, people glorify corporate sales positions thinking they will live out a scene from 1992’s Glengarry Glen Ross and hear someone say “put that coffee down”. There’s more to sales than a catchphrase. It’s important for those interested in a career in sales, to be honest, and ethical, develop good listening skills, be passionate, and have the desire/drive to succeed. Also, learning early on to not sweat the small stuff and to not take objections personally is key. It’s a necessary skill set to be open and receptive to growth and development at every phase of your career.
