Senior salesperson wanted / Key Account Manager, technically gifted

Elvstrøm Sails has over the past years experienced a very positive development and growth. We have taken our first steps into expanding our market presence outside Europe and we are now looking to strengthen our sales department with an extra resource.

If sailing is your passion and you strive to find the optimal solution for the customer - you might be the person for our team at ElvstrømSails in Aabenraa!

With a reference to our sales director you will play an important role in the future development of our sales-and servicedepartment. You probably have a commercial education, a great interest in sailing and you are technically well-founded. It is a big advantage if you are from the boat and/or sail industry.

Your contribution

You are an outgoing person with a smile and in control of yourself and professionally with many years of experience from international sales working with dealers and OEM´s. Thus you know how to get on in different cultures and with different customers - from independent dealers to purchase managers in bigger organizations.  Strong English and German language skills is a prerequisite, and a third language such as Spanish, Italian or French would be a plus.

We take for granted that you are service minded with an eye to detail. You acknowledge the importance of going the extra mile, and pro-active sales and customer contact comes quite natural for you. Personal drive is one of your characteristics, and with a structured and hard-working attitude you are capable of keeping many balls in the air. You thrive working independently, but is also a team player who helps out your colleagues when needed.  In your eagerness to find and deliver the best possible solution you challenge the status-quo.

In terms of IT, you must be experienced with the Microsoft Office package and experience with Axapta would be a plus. In general you need to be able to quickly adapt to new IT systems and platforms.

Our contribution

We are a passionate team with a proud brand, and this is your chance to be part of it. You will be challenged in many ways and on many levels but you will also have plenty of opportunities to make a difference in our company, especially when it comes to international sales.

In time you will gain responsibility for your own customer portfolio of dealers as well as OEM´s, most of whom will be outside Denmark. After a period of training we expect you to be able to service and develop your customers and markets.  

Conditions:

Since we are busy, we are looking for a colleague as soon as possible. You will be working at the HQ in Aabenraa, but should expect a fair amount of travel days in connection with boat shows and customer visits. We offer a salary package that corresponds to qualifications and responsibility.
