The Challenge:This company employed a well-motivated sales team of 12 people and four trainees who all reported in to the directors - they were looking to grow this team to 20 in total.
To facilitate this expansion, they identified the need to bring on board an experienced Sales Manager who could help manage the existing team day-to-day as well as train new recruits. The purpose of the role was to win the hearts and minds of the sales team and build on the company’s culture of success.
This person would be an inclusive performance manager and help individuals within the team organise themselves more effectively. Continuous improvement of sales and operational processes within the team was the key ongoing goal for this new position.
