This new Hired Guns client is recognized by scribblers and doodlers worldwide for their classic, stylish writing accessories. Although they’re growing quickly, they remain focused on their commitment to elegant efficiency. To maintain this delicate balance, they need a Marketing Manager who is the perfect blend of committed, sales-oriented, motivated, and chic.
You’re highly organized, detail-oriented, and infectiously enthusiastic. You can generate creative ideas to expand sales and explore new channels, then follow through on them. You’ve got solid management experience in retail merchandising and marketing and a track record of quantifiable success with both online and in-store initiatives. It’s your keen knowledge of visual branding (with some production experience), trade marketing, and the general market landscape that will give you an edge, as will your intuitive grasp of the company’s brand values. And of course, you’ll need an exceptional appreciation for the culture of creativity that flourishes within this brand’s community of users.
As Marketing Manager, you will be responsible for all marketing and merchandising initiatives in the U.S. That will entail the creation of crucial presentations for strategic partnerships and new business opportunities and the concepting and analysis of marketing plans for targeted retail partners, distributors and more.
On a day-in, day-out basis, you will be charged with handling the quantitative and qualitative analysis of distribution channels and retailers, both in-store and online. You will oversee the identification of new market segments and monitor the competition from product, marketing, and merchandising perspectives. You’ll have a direct reporting line to the President of the U.S. division, manage two direct reports, and coordinate closely with the PR and events manager. Some domestic travel is required.
Non è necessario, ma se si può parlare in Italiano sarebbe fantastico. We don’t even care if you butcher the accent.
This is the perfect role for a highly motivated Gun who’s ready to really take a stake in driving sales and upping the marketing game for a wonderful, growing organization.
