National Sales Manager
Avron Distribution, Concord, Ontario

It’s not every day that you find an opportunity where you can take advantage of your business development skills, sales expertise, leadership ability, and passion for growing a business, in equal parts for our Corporate, Montreal and Vancouver offices. Today is that day!

If you’re ready to energetically start into this role in our organization where you can truly add value as our sales leader, then this is the role for you! 

About the Company
We’re a B2B supplier of a diverse array of products across a number of verticals across Canada, oriented principally to daycare facilities, seniors facilities, and schools.
With almost no competitors in our space, and a virtually untapped sales territory in numerous segments, we are ripe with opportunity to grow our business dramatically. We want your help to do that.
We’re currently in search of an ambitious, driven National Sales Manager to join our team and lead our Canadian sales and business operations to the next level. 

About the Position
As our new National Sales Manager, your primary purpose will be to provide sales and operational leadership to our Sales team. Your focus is on business development, driving team sales through coaching and motivating your team, and managing the business development/sales process to deliver a seamless customer experience.

You will:
-      Lead your team (sales reps/account managers) to achieve sales objectives by effectively managing territories and accounts. Identify key customers (new and dormant) to establish and maintain rapport, drive sales, and serve as a key contact
-      Develop strategies to grow market share and pursue new business opportunities
-      Train, motivate and coach employees on work performance
-      Travel 1-2 times per month within (principally) Ontario to accompany sales reps on client meetings, to meet with large chain accounts, and drive new business.
-      Coordinate participation in and attend trade shows and other industry events
-      Work with our national procurement and marketing team to build marketing and sales programs for the territories, in conjunction with the Branch Managers.
-      Conduct quarterly sales meetings and review updates, and yearly performance reviews
-      Deliver ongoing review of sales to budget, and develop annual sales budgets at the rep and territory level.

This is an autonomous role, with a broad scope that will keep you highly engaged and motivated. You’ll have the freedom to work and manage your sales team independently, along with the support of our national marketing, procurement and operations teams when you need it.

We’re looking for an enthusiastic and assertive go-getter – someone who’s ready to roll up their sleeves and get into the thick of it. This is an incredible opportunity to grow your sales and operational leadership skills, drive success, and deliver results. If this sounds exciting to you, then we want to meet you.

The Details
This is a full-time permanent position. You’ll work Monday to Friday, during standard business hours. There is some flexibility with daily start and end times, and you’ll occasionally need to work on weekends and evenings to participate in tradeshows and other industry events. 

Here’s what else you can expect:
-      Competitive base salary to commensurate with experience
-      Generous annual performance bonus
-      Benefits, RRSP program, and 3 weeks’ vacation to start
-      Mobile phone allowance
-      All travel costs reimbursed

Education:

Bachelors in Business Admin, Marketing or related and relevant post-secondary education (sales, marketing, business, etc.) and proven experience in business development and supporting a national team.

Preferred but not essential, for candidates to have a Certified Sales Professional Designation.

Qualifications
-      Strategic business development planning
-      Significant sales experience (5+ years), with a proven track record of meeting sales targets through managing effective customer experience
-      Sales leadership experience is a must (i.e. building and managing sales teams, developing sales strategies, monitoring sales performance, etc.)
-      Proven ability to lead, coach, and influence others to develop business
-      Experience selling in the CPG industry (or related) is an asset
-      Branch management experience and/or operations management experience is desirable
-      Ability to travel to satellite branches as needed
