Sales Manager (85018)
Where Empowered Talent Creates Sustained Success
We are currently looking for a Sales Manager for our Tacoma, WA location. The focus of this job is making connections with people, motivating and inspiring them to achieve results.
The work involves driving toward results by enrolling the commitment and buy-in of others. While the job requires strong initiative and self-direction, results are only achieved with and through people. A sincere appreciation for people and how they are each uniquely motivated is the foundation for designing and implementing interactive communication and decision-making processes.
Knowledge and skill in how to successfully influence and persuade others by understanding how their individual needs and motivations link to goals is essential. The job requires a high degree of "selling", whether of ideas and products or services in the marketplace.
The job environment is fast paced and results oriented. While there is urgency to goal achievement, responsibility for the achievement of results needs to be shared and effectively delegated when necessary. Initiating projects and processes beyond established organization practices will often require training and developing others, and enlisting their support by using a "selling" rather "telling" communication style.
A self-confident, extroverted style that can enliven, engage and positively impact individuals and groups is essential. The job has variety of tasks and is dynamic and changing. Because goals and desired results can quickly change, the job requires regularly meeting and pro-actively establishing relationships with new groups. The ability to understand, quickly react and motivate others to adapt to the changing organization environment is a critical key to success.
Education, Experience and Skills Required:
- Bachelor’s degree from four-year college or university or equivalent combination of education and experience
- 8 years of progressively responsible sales management and service experience; wholesale lumber experience helpful, but not required.
