Sales Director / Sales Leader (German and/or French speaking)

SALES DIRECTOR / SALES LEADER (GERMAN AND/OR FRENCH SPEAKING)
A unique opportunity to play a leadership role in the transformational growth of a small, niche industrial supplies business. Recently backed by new investors and previously family-run, the business is preparing to embark on a program of modernization and accelerated growth.

Our client is looking for a Sales Leader of the highest calibre to join them on their journey. If you are the successful candidate, you will work closely with, and report directly to the investors, taking accountability for creating a high performance sales function and, ultimately, accelerating top line growth. You will lead in the development and delivery of the new business and key account strategy, manage and build out the company's sales capabilities, and personally take a lead in winning new international distributor relationships.

You will have an exceptional track record in international reseller business development in a related sector and will be experienced with leading and building teams, implementing best-in-class sales practices, setting and managing performance metrics, and produce data-driven management reports. You will not be one to shy from a challenge; rather, you will have the desire to achieve something out of the ordinary.

Ultimately, you will help drive and shape the business towards a further investment or exit event, which may present you with a further opportunity to create equity value for yourself, for example through an MBO.

With less than ca.30 employees, it is a small business built on a reputation for quality, innovative products and an impressive, long-standing network of multi-national distributors in the UK and across Europe. The core end markets include warehousing, MRO and logistics, with further potential for growth in packaging, office supplies, FM, public sector and education sectors. Our client's plan is to double the size of the business within 3yrs through a focus on new business development, primarily targeting distributors across these sectors, both in Europe and further afield.

Location: Nr Reading, Berks. UK

As a key member of the senior management team, you will also be expected to help shape overall business strategy, contribute to business planning exercises including budgeting and setting KPIs, and to nurture a winning, professional and enjoyable culture.

Haris Bajric Bates

Team:  Sales & Marketing
I specialise in:  Senior Sales and Marketing Appointments
Languages:  (Swiss-) German, Bosnian/Croatian
I started working at Euro London in:  2018

Growing up in a Bosnian family in the Austrian Alps, switching from one language to another came quite naturally to me very early on and made learning new languages rather easy for me.  English quickly became my favourite foreign language which later led me to the US where I lived and worked for 5 years. There I got my first taste of Recruitment and made a career of it after my return to Austria. I moved to London in 2016 in order to join my wife, a native Londoner. Altogether, I’ve got 11 years of Recruitment experience under my belt and lots more in Sales and Marketing.

When I’m not at work, I love spending time in nature, skiing is one of my favourite hobbies, I also love Delta Blues and a cold beer…

If I were a famous person, I would be: Duane Allman, the greatest Blues Slide Guitar player of all times. Why? For standing on stage and “ripping” it up!

Fun fact:  One day, doing sales calls in the countryside outside of Chicago, I got lost and was chased off a property by an Amish man with a shotgun in one hand and the leash of a barking Doberman in the other…
