Are you a commercially focused managing director with knowledge of the outdoor home improvement industry?
Our client is an established, successful and thriving family business on the cusp of greatness. But they need your help to get there.
As an experienced managing director, you'll know what it takes to grow a business. Of course, it isn't always easy, but when that business has an excellent reputation for supplying and installing high-quality products, it's an awful lot easier.
The family have built their business by putting the customer at the centre. And it's worked well. They have a growing customer base within the M25 region and are keen to expand it further.
That's where you come in. Having worked in the outdoor home improvement industry, you'll be familiar with their process. The directors envisage your background, including the outdoor home improvements industry, possibly involving decking, artificial grass, hot tubs, landscape gardening, or external workspace pods.
They tailor everything to their client's requirements, so no two jobs are the same, and the opportunities for upselling are considerable. In addition, they have a strong operations team who know exactly what they're doing, so your focus as MD will be on the commercial and strategic development of the business.
While they have a core product and focus for the business, they inevitably become involved in supplying other related services that fall outside of their current scope. For example, they sub-contract landscaping and are keen to develop their in-house team to supply that service. As the MD, you'll be able to flex your strategic muscles by developing and implementing those types of plans.
Their projects and customers vary considerably from private, domestic clients to large venues, such as the O2 Arena, so there are plenty of options for you to explore as the directors are keen to diversify into other areas. They see possible opportunities to create a franchise model for their business, so they will draw on your experience in building successful franchises.
