    Regionaler Account Manager – Motorrad Industrie

    Diese Motorräder sind absolute Lifestyle Ikonen im Premium Markt – schöne Maschinen fürs Auge, fürs Ohr und fürs Gemüt!

    In der Region östliche Schweiz (inkl. Zürich, Innerschweiz, etc.) und Tessin hat mein Kunde 12 Händler, welche professionell betreut werden sollen. Als ‚Consultant’ besprechen sie das Budget mit Ihnen, machen den Verkaufs- und Marketingpläne, schulen die Mitarbeiter und unterstützen operativ spezielle Verkaufsaktionen. Sie sind auch der Ansprechpartner für alle Probleme der Händler und organisieren entsprechende Lösungen.

    In all diesem arbeiten sie zusammen mit Marketing und technischen Spezialisten des Unternehmens. In diesem kleinen CH-Team (Sitz in Zürich) mit 8 Personen rapportieren sie direkt an den Country Manager.

    Die Schweiz ist für meinen Kunden ein sehr wichtiger Markt und ihre Händler werden ‚gepflegt’. Deshalb ist es enorm wichtig, dass sie der Typ sind, welcher Beziehungen aufbauen und pflegen kann/will. Der Premiummarkt setzt auch erstklassiges Auftreten voraus. Und sie sollten Schweizerdeutsch als Muttersprache haben, aber auch Italienisch und einigermassen Englisch sprechen.

    Hoffentlich haben sie keine Stau-Aversion, denn sie werden 80% ihrer Zeit draussen bei den Händlern ihrer Region sein...

    Und am liebsten wäre uns jemand aus der Motorrad-/Auto-Industrie, oder allenfalls aus der Luxusgüterbranche. Dass sie solide Account Management Erfahrung haben und mit dieser Art von Betreuung in Sales vertraut sind, setzen wir voraus...


    Ich freue mich auf Ihre Bewerbung (in Englisch).
