Due to growth and customer demand, we are currently recruiting for a Inside Sales Manager to join our team in Charlotte, NC.
You are first and foremost a developer of people – a coach who is passionate about developing talent and launching careers. Someone who can push people to higher and higher levels of performance. You have many people who have worked for you, have gone on to greater things, and acknowledge the role you played. More than your own accomplishments you take pride in your reports who have gone from good to great. You are the leader who finds diamonds in the rough no one else can see.
You are process oriented and either a professionally trained or self-taught experimenter who can set up measurements, metrics and dashboards. Your coaching ability tells you how to coach a skill – your process and metrics expertise tells you where to focus that skill. You know the numbers don’t lie and are always on looking for key insights and root causes.
You can be ruthless with your time, knowing that focusing on 1 or 2 A+ problems is far more effective than being busy all of the time with 50 C- problems. You know what matters and you dial your focus there.
You are high on personal accountability, and unwavering on your personal values. You believe that leadership is a position of responsibly, not of privilege. You are a lifelong learner.
Build and oversee a 30+ strong inside sales team that intentionally develops personnel with the intent of moving our best and most experience reps into field or corporate roles while maintaining a very high revenue generation and performance expectation.
You will need to help develop and hone a department lifecycle that recruits well, on-boards fast, reliably develops top talent, and then proactively sends your best out to other departments. Rinse, repeat and refine.
As a leader you will be a liaison with supporting functions across the organization including facilities, HR, IT, Operations, Logistics, regional Sales and Marketing. You must understand their needs and be able into incorporate information that furthers both your team and company’s charter, and then deftly navigate all that is not.
This is a hands-on role with significant emphasis on physical presence and active coaching. You will focus on the process but be open to modifying and improving the process based on verifiable evidence. You must be a strong coach capable of adjusting your techniques to ensure best results.
Partner with local managers to identify and analyze areas of revenue generation opportunities for products and/or services in support of business goals and to monitor the sales agent’s overall effectiveness throughout the sales process.
