You will use your superior listening skills, your understanding of architectural lighting to recognize opportunities, interface with the lighting design market and an ability to tell a story with your marketing skills as you lead your marketing team, interface within the lighting market (in order to hear the voice of the customer) and develop a plan for continued growth. Your ability to review our client’s go-to-market strategy and then do a strategic analysis to come up with a marketing plan and your ability to listen to your team and then add value will also be a part of your success.

Ability to create a great SWOT by talking to customers and asking the right questions is a real plus. BS/BA degree in Marketing or Business is a strong preference, MBA is a plus; 25% travel.
