Business Development Manager (C.£45k + package) North West

leave a comment »

Our client is a very well-known and highly successful distributor of parts for the independent automotive aftermarket. Their business has seen strong growth in the past 2 years and there are new strategies in place to maximize the exciting opportunities that exist in the market.

As part of this growth plan, they now require a Business Manager / Senior Sales Manager to join their business with a regional brief to drive business plans and sales strategies that will ensure attainment of company sales goals and profitability.

Working across the branch network, you will be responsible for the development and performance of all sales activities, providing leadership towards the achievement of maximum profitability and growth in line with company vision and values. This will include establishing plans and strategies to continually expand the customer base.

The ideal candidate will be a seasoned sales professional with a track record of successful management in a distribution based commodity sales environment. You will have well-developed commercial acumen and an entrepreneurial approach to the sales environment. You will also be an experienced people manager and mentor, with the energy and gravitas to inspire and motivate teams to achieve their goals. You will be a strategic thinker, able to deliver on short term goals whilst putting longer term structures and metrics and place to ensure sustained achievement.

Although past experience of working the automotive aftermarket (motor factor, manufacturer or buying group) will be a benefit, your character, drive and enthusiasm will be the final decision making factor.

There are outstanding career prospects in this organisation, and the Business Manager of today will be a likely Board Member of tomorrow.
