This rare opportunity for an ambitious individual to have considerable responsibility for the performance of a leading company’s sales and its standing in the marketplace. You will oversee the sales department, develop and implement sales strategies, gather performance data and create reports for senior management and shareholders. You will use your knowledge of the printing industry and its markets to look at ways to create growth, accurately forecast sales predictions and shifts in the marketplace, and avoid stagnation.
