Job Description

VP Business Development - APAC Contract Logistics

"Excellent high-profile and influential opportunity for experienced Business Development Director from the third-party contract logistics sector in APAC"

Salary: Double Digit Six Figure Package

Location: Singapore or India or Thailand (Flexible/Hybrid)

One question that may change your life:

"How well do you know the 3PL market in the APAC region?"

Actually, it's more your answer than the question itself that will change your life, but let's not split hairs.

If your answer uses words like "totally", "completely", or any other adverb meaning "a lot", then our client will be interested in talking to you.

Because they want the best person to lead their plan of growing 8-10 times their current size within the next 3 years.

Sounds ambitious, doesn't it?

But these are robust plans built on their already enviable reputation of first-class service in the world of contract logistics across the whole APAC region. They just need someone like you to execute the plan using your knowledge and experience gained through an impressive career in the 3PL world.

As our client focuses entirely on contract logistics, yours will be selling warehousing and transportation solutions to clients in the region. As such, you'll be driving lead generation and managing the bid processes. This will also include leading the solutions team to deliver end-to-end, value-added, comprehensive, and competitive solutions to new business or existing operations.

Unlike many 3PLs, our client offers an open strategy with plenty of freedom for their senior team members. They don't micro-manage their directors, so you'll be able to use your skill and judgement to generate new business and contracts. So, you'll need the confidence and drive to act on your own initiative and operate as you see fit.

Currently, they have a good portfolio of contracts and decent turnover. However, these contracts have been in place for several years, and our client wants to expand their customer base from a position of strength. Their customers are delighted with the service levels and long-standing contracts, but they have the potential (with someone like you on board) to grow that business eight to ten times within the next three years.

So for a Business Development Director/VP of your calibre, it should be your dream job, as you will have a blank sheet of paper to craft your masterpiece. However, you have the advantage of starting with a strong portfolio of happy customers and profitable contracts.

As this role will cover all countries within the APAC region, our client envisages you will be based in Thailand or India and will support your relocation if required.
In return our client offers a very competitive double digit six figure salary and benefits package, and you can live in Singapore, India or Thailand - other locations may also be possible. The role will entail extensive travel throughout APAC.
