Senior Business Development Manager The Executive Shortlist location Sydney.

Our client has offices in all States and NZ.  Very highly regarded, in a competitive marketplace, they are stable, profitable and successful. As a well-established, mid-sized importer and distributor, they offer a wide range of keenly sought-after technical and specialist products and materials to blue chip customers and others.

Widely respected for exclusive, quality brands, innovation and really great customer service, they include manufacturing, building, construction, engineering, industrial and commercial in a wide range of clients. This role will especially focus on architectural/design specification markets and major (and mid-size) players in the construction industry. Know-how and expertise in materials related to these sectors will be well rewarded.

With a solid base of loyal customers with considerable potential for growth, aided by new product launches, you will be working in a tandem with (and influencing) a high-calibre team. Managing key overseas suppliers (of exclusive products) will be a critical component of this role as well, so adaptability and managing an active, diverse portfolio will be critical to successful selection.

We are seeking a skilled sales professional who is personable, well-organised and respected. We already know a little about your reputation – positive, trusted, with a good track record. We also suspect you'll seldom find yourself in the job market. And you’ll probably only be looking because now the fizz and opportunity within your present company has been exhausted.

Your career to date has had a deep focus on sales, managing special projects, achieving results, and making a measureable difference. Your future will likely involve more management! Others will describe you as a real people person (with a technical flair). Keeping clients, building business, fostering lasting relationships are all important to you. Being a key member of an accomplished, close-knit team in a reputable business will mean a lot as well.

An attractive remuneration package is offered: a very competitive market salary, car, super, realistic incentives (after a qualifying period) and all the tools and flexibility you’ll need. We want to meet high-calibre candidates and welcome discussion. The opportunity to expand and grow will be a genuine attraction for the right person.

We also appreciate that in the times we live, people can be distracted, away from their desk, or simply just miss an advertisement like this one. So if you are reading this now, and see it as an opportunity for someone else, please pass it on. And if you are interested yourself of course we’d like to hear from you as soon as possible. Complete confidentiality is assured.
