RssAccomplished Sales Manager

Areas of particular strength include: * Product marketing in support of revenue and profit objectives * Assess needs and identify appropriate solutions * Perform market and competitive research * Customer service toward satisfaction and retention * Train clients on product knowledge and sales techniques * Independently manage territory and call schedules My background is strong in supervision, training, and working to improve the performance of Sales Representatives and Merchandisers, and I am skilled in planning and implementing business goals, strategies and objectives. I have most recently worked as a District Sales Manager for Hunter Douglas Window Fashions calling on the home center trade and providing the same types of training sessions that would be useful to distributor sales representatives. Due to a reorganization of their National Accounts Group in November, my position was eliminated. Currently I am anxious to continue my career in a position where my talents will contribute to the growth of a dynamic organization.
