Meet your Manager – Curtis Steeksma

Curtis - meet your manager

Hey There! My name is Curtis and I’m a Sales Lead here at Bucketlist Rewards. 


Can you give us some background on yourself?

I have a bit of a unique and eclectic background when it comes to my personal interests and career development. I’ve always been a bit of a closet nerd and have had a deep interest in computers, video games, and all things tech. I’m also very passionate about the arts; in fact I played music professionally for almost a decade. I’ve lived on a tour bus, signed a record deal, and had a few songs on the radio too. When my musical journey concluded, I was able to take my flair for performance and translate it into a successful career where I could utilize my showmanship, leadership skills, and interest in technology.

I love keeping active and you’ll find me in the gym every morning before work. I’m also a huge animal lover and it’s a dream of mine to one day have a small hobby farm.

Can you describe your current role at Bucketlist Rewards?

In my sales leadership position I am responsible for coaching and mentoring Account Executives to help them maximize their potential. I am also involved in developing new processes for the team, hiring and onboarding new reps, and I participate in some direct selling as well. 

Can you tell us how your team is structured and how it typically operates?

As a new Sales Lead we are continuing to build the team of AEs reporting directly to me.

Our Account Executives follow a typical consultative sales process and I coach them as they progress through it, often parachuting in on conversations where I can add value through industry best practices.

How would you describe the culture at Bucketlist Rewards?

Culture is an imperative at Bucketlist Rewards. We provide a fun, exciting product to the market and our culture internally reflects that. It’s dynamic, collaborative, and one heck of a good company to be a part of!  Everyone in the organization is open to feedback and we’re always working as a team to lift each other up.

What sort of person do you think would fit in well with your team?

I like curious people who are accountable team players and creative thinkers that bring positivity, innovation, and joy to their work. 

What’s your favourite thing about your job?

I feel like my contributions are valued at Bucketlist and that I am actively participating in the success of the company.

And of course I love THE PEOPLE. Truly, this is our greatest asset. I love coaching and helping others unlock their potential. 

What’s on your Bucketlist?

I would love to go on an African safari!

“Bucketlist is a company like no other! The product is awesome, the people are phenomenal and I think we’ve managed to create something really special here.”
