Sales & Marketing Director
With solid year on year growth, this business is part of a privately owned European Packaging Group, providing innovative solutions in a range of materials including paper and plastics to a diverse customer base in food, beverage and food service sectors.
The Group has invested in state of the art technology and focuses on innovation, continuous improvement and best practice, and has a culture which fosters and empowers employees at all levels, offering an environment of continual personal development and succession planning.
An exciting and challenging opportunity has now arisen for an inspirational Sales & Marketing Director to take responsibility for a paper based packaging business delivering a turnover in excess of £50m p.a, through B2B and blue chip end user, and distributor routes to market. The Sales & Marketing Director will provide tactical and strategic leadership and direction to a team of c11 to deliver EBITDA by driving sales revenue and margins and the further development of a value driven, high performing sales team. Both strategic and hands on, the appointee will play a significant personal role in creating and developing customer relationships at all levels, across Europe.
We are seeking results driven candidates with the drive, enthusiasm and experience of implementing, or working within, a professionally structured, corporate business with strong sales tracking mechanisms where he/she has developed sales teams to achieve success and key business objectives.
Experience in the packaging sector is not essential, however, it is likely that candidates will come from a similar progressive, B2B product manufacturing business in a highly competitive environment such as food, beverage, food service or FMCG. It is essential that candidates have managed high value sales turnovers. International experience will be a distinct advantage.
With well-rounded process driven sales experience and demonstrable achievement of sales and profit growth, candidates must be tough negotiators with the gravitas and strength of character to command the respect of colleagues, the sales team and key customers.
Ambition and achievement will be rewarded with career development opportunities within this successful and expanding Group.
