Sales Manager and Business Developer (H/F)

Sales Manager and Business Developer (H/F) Paris (75)

Our client :

Our client is an office furniture group founded in the 90’s. The group is the European leader in complete furnishing solutions for work and public spaces. It has over 15 production sites in different countries, international distribution is carried out by subsidiaries in 16 countries in Europe and the Middle East, with a turnover of roughly €500 million. Today, our client  designs new workspaces, conference centres, cinemas, stadiums, music halls, sports halls and multifunctional venues with prestigious references.

In France, the company has been present for about twenty years through a distribution subsidiary but takes a real turn in 2019 with external growth. The Head of France has been in charge of the restructuring of the French subsidiary since the takeover, providing support to the buyers for two years: sale of the production factories, except for one which is retained for the assembling of seats, merger of the historical company and the remaining teams. The new entity has a staff of nearly 90 people and achieved a turnover of €25 million in the turmoil of 2020, strongly affected by the restructuring and the economic situation.

The group is fully integrated, i.e. most of the production, all support functions and management are carried out from the home country. The French subsidiary therefore only has a small production team (25 people), 5 people to handle logistics, 5 people to support the corporate functions, 20 people to ensure quality customer service and, above all, 25 people for the sales department.

A Sales Director for the France entity is currently being recruited, with responsibility for the development and management of all sales teams.
