Global Managing Director - £100,000 - £160,000 - London / Asia / USA

This is a very rare opportunity to join a profitable, privately owned business at board level.

The Business

This company was set up in the late 1990s and now numbers 80 employees spread across offices in Asia, America and the UK - the head office is here is London.

They specialise in the end to end supply of promotional products to the leisure and entertainment sectors. Their experienced team handle everything from designing the intial concept to production, quality control, shipping and delivery. They have a fantastic in house design team that continually push the boundaries of what is possible in their sectors to create ever more innovative products.

The Role

Reporting directly to the owner and working closely with your colleagues in the US and Asia, you will be tasked with driving growth across all markets in line with the company's long term ambitions.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Developing strategic plans and setting sales targets for each market
  • Regular travel to the Far East and America to visit tradshows and factories
  • Day to day decision making on hiring, suppliers and general spend
  • Ensuring the team remain engaged and focused
  • Budgeting and cost saving exercises
  • Compliling and presenting quarterly sales reports
  • Assuming full accountability to the board for all company operations

What experience do you need?

You'll need to be able to demonstrate significant experience in the promotional products/premiums industry, ideally within a similar size business.

You'll likely have fulfilled a Managing Director or Sales Director role already and be able to show proven results in generating profit in the UK at least.

What's in it for you?

Senior roles like this hardly ever come up, especially with the level of autonomy you would be trusted with here.

You can expect to receive a very generous basic salary in line with the level of responsibility as well as a profit linked bonus, pension, healthcare and 28 days holiday.
