Sales Director – Specialist Engineering Manufacturer

Client: The company is a specialist engineering manufacturer within fume and toxic gas extraction, selling to OEM’s with bespoke design and standardized product through distributors in Europe and the Far East.
Position: Sales Director

Following a Private Equity backed MBO, by a large mid-cap investor, our client required a Sales Director with significant international distributorship channel experience, to lead a sizeable sales and commercial team.

In order to achieve the strategic sales growth forecasted in the investment plan, sales management needed to be professionalised and enhanced through the acquisition of a highly committed sales leader. Bailey Montagu provided a comprehensive shortlist from within Europe and the Far East, identifying and engaging talent with a demonstrable track record of leading sales growth against challenging and targeted growth plans.

The successful candidate intuitively understood the Private Equity value proposition and had a clear history of achieving significant sales growth. They demonstrated excellent leadership and development capabilities as well as strategic intent, particularly when expanding distributor networks to drive substantial shareholder value.
