Head of Sales/ Commercial Director Europe


This company plays a prominent role worldwide in the field of modern, innovative and reliable solutions for LED lighting systems at airports, ports and stadiums, among others. Thanks to high technical quality, offering tailor-made solutions and providing excellent service, the company has built a strong reputation. In the coming years, the company also wants to build up an important position with LED lighting in European agriculture and horticulture.

Job description

The ideal candidate is an experienced and driven commercial man or woman. He or she knows exactly how a large network of customers can be built up quickly and successfully, knows everything about acquisition and relationship management and ensures a rapidly growing turnover. European agriculture and horticulture, in particular greenhouse horticulture, is a new area of attention for the company, but much is expected from it. The right candidate preferably has some technical knowledge, interest or experience with, for example, LED lighting systems, but also speaks with the grower’s practical language. Sales experience in commercial functions in horticulture (or related sectors such as greenhouse construction and suppliers of technical systems) and having a network in this sector is a major advantage. This, for example , can be a network with producers and builders of greenhouses or suppliers of technical systems. The required head of sales / commercial director works from home, but will of course be often on the road to speak to and convince (potential) customers.

Job requirements

We are looking for an ambitious candidate with extensive commercial experience. The candidate we are looking for always wants to achieve the set goals, is commercially strong, takes initiative, is willing to take his own responsibility and has the real drive to make this position a success. He or she is a strong and convincing personality who can quickly build up a whole new European customer base in agriculture and horticulture. Depending on the commercial success and the realized revenue growth, he or she may have new employees to recruit. Due to the international nature, good command of English (spoken and written) and (preferably) some other European languages is essential. The company has a preference for candidates who live in Central Europe and start working in Europe from their own country.

Working conditions

The excellent salary matches the weight of the position. In addition, there are excellent employment conditions. There are ambitious plans and objectives in the coming years and that means great growth and development opportunities for the sought candidate. The right candidate plays a key role in those plans and knows how to turn this new position into the desired commercial success.

Are you ambitious and do you meet the requirements? Do you know European agriculture and horticulture? Do you know anything about (lighting) technology but are you primarily a real commercial builder of a large customer base? Are you convinced that you are a real salesman with your experience and commercial drive? Do want to know more? Call us or write us an email. All responses will remain confidential.
