Nile Kamlani

Sales Professional Heidelberg Toledo

During his time in college, Heidelberg Toledo Sales Pro Nile Kamlani was like many students who picked up a job waiting tables and tending bar to make ends meet and put some extra cash in their pockets. His experience working at an Italian fine dining restaurant helped to pave the way to his current profession and career.

Nile attended Lourdes University in Sylvania, Ohio, just outside of Toledo. He began working at an Italian fine dining restaurant, starting as a server and becoming a bartender. As time passed at the restaurant, his knowledge of beer and wine expanded. Within a few months of earning his degree in business from Lourdes, in August of 2013, Nile began working with Heidelberg. “Having that position in the restaurant industry with fine dining, definitely helped,” says Nile. “Getting firsthand experience with both craft beer and fine wine was a plus and made selling with Heidelberg an easier transition. All of the training with Heidelberg has definitely helped to keep me moving in the right direction.”

One thing that there was no training for was the situation that Nile and the rest of the in the company (and industry) have had to deal with over the past year with the COVID-19 Pandemic. “Some of the challenges I faced early on with the pandemic was balancing work life with family life,” Nile says. “Taking care of my customers but trying to remain safe as well as respectful of their boundaries and procedures was a challenge. My daughter’s daycare was closed for two months and both my wife and I were trying to work around each other’s schedule and take care of her at the same time.”

Nile and his wife Alyson were married in 2017 and daughter Sunnie Rose Kamlani, joined the family on September 6, 2019. “The past year has been hard because of the pandemic,” Nile said. “The one nice thing that came out of it is getting a lot of quality time with our daughter.” In Nile’s spare time away from work, he enjoys spending time with his family and playing golf. He was a member of the Lourdes University golf team while in college.
