Our client is the well-established US-subsidiary of a privately owned 100+ year-old global company active in the design and manufacture of vibratory, thermal processing and air separation equipment for the scrap, recycling, mining, aggregate, steel, foundry, plastics, dry chemical and food industries in the US, Canada, and Mexico. Headquartered in Germany and with a total global presence of roughly 1,000 employees in 10 subsidiaries, the company has been showcasing its exponential growth with a recent acquisition and merger with a manufacturer of hinge belt, magnetic conveyors, and parts processing centrifuges for stamping and fastener customers in the United States.
In 2006, the company began its sales, engineering and manufacturing capabilities in the Chicago Area. To support its ongoing growth, they recently completed a major expansion of their Tennessee facility to double their production and warehouse space. With 25 employees at both sites, the company aims to further evolve current North American efforts and build upon the previous 20 successful years selling to industry customers across the continent.
The company is now seeking a self-starting, technically minded team-player for their US-subsidiary to become a senior member and integral figure in their growing international sales team. As new internal sales records are being accomplished year-after-year, the Director of Sales will drive sales of large, mechanical equipment to both new and existing customers across the US. The ideal candidate should possess a holistic combination of sales, finance, operations and engineering experience/aptitude to be able to handle additional cross-functional responsibilities once the person has proven themselves in this role.
