My client has grown significantly over a number of years and today is the leading

supplier of wheel service equipment to the automotive aftermarket in the UK.

They operate at the premium end of the market, consequently the levels of customer

service and support we continue to deliver underpin their success.

With rapid expansion, their structure has needed to adapt and integrate swiftly. As

a consequence it has been identified that they need a strong business professional

to manage the operations within their head office at Towcester. The Directors

have worked tirelessly to develop the business from scratch over 25 years ago

and are now looking to release many of their functions. As entrepreneurs

they realise they are no longer best suited (given the size of business) to

manage the business on a day-to-day basis. They want to move away from the

routine management and focus more on the future direction and opportunities

that the company can aspire to.

As a result, they are looking for someone with senior leadership experience and

skills plus a proven track record to come on board. This would involve taking

control and managing all business, administrative and operational aspects of a

busy sales and service organisation. Working as the central hub within the office

to facilitate the smooth running of all departments by honing and nurturing the

existing skills and talents within.

Departments consist of: Finance; Aftersales (service & parts/stores/equipment

build); HR; IT; Sales administration. The right person would also work alongside

their established Sales Director who manages the busy field sales force.

You will need to bring real vigour and enthusiasm and be able to show team

motivational skills while developing, mentoring and cementing the teams ongoing

success, for the benefit of the Company as a whole.

You will preferably have a MBA qualification in a business related discipline and

have a minimum of 6 years experience in a commercial management role. You

will need to demonstrate excellent customer focus that enables you to deliver

positive experiences throughout the organisation. You should be commercially

astute and be capable of further enhancing both revenue and profitability of the

business. You will need to support the sales team, providing it with a stable and

efficient platform giving it the tools required for continued success in a

competitive service orientated market.

The position will be well rewarded with a salary negotiable dependent on

experience and those special extra talents you can bring to the organisation.
