Vice President of Sales

Our client company (an innovative and well-respected manufacturer of architectural lighting) is seeking a polished, collaborative, and strategic Vice President of Sales to lead their sales team, continue to develop and enhance relationships with their agency network and the specification community, and drive strong growth!

You will use your sales leadership success in architectural lighting fixtures (indoor or outdoor), your understanding of channels and ability to think strategically from a go-to market viewpoint as you lead your sales team and work closely with the board and CEO.

Our ideal candidate is currently a National Sales Manager, Vice President of Sales, Agency Principal, or possibly a senior Regional Vice President with a proven track record of generating and increasing revenue, is an aggressive closer who still understands nurturing, growing and leading a team! This is a key position in the company, reporting directly to the CEO and will contribute to the strategic vision going forward. One of the candidates we placed with this company said of them, “I was hoping to find a place that felt like family and this is definitely it!” Management experience is required, experience with SalesForce (or a similar) software is a huge plus, but not essential. 3-5 years management experience is required. BS/BA degree preferred (but not critical); 50-75% travel.

If you want a career, not a job, send us your resume along with an accomplishment that best demonstrates your most significant work. Include this in your email response and we’ll read it first.
