MANAGING DIRECTOR - AIRFREIGHT SECTOR

"Airfreight Sector Sales/New Business and Commercial Leader sought for established multimedia and exhibition business."

Salary £60-70000 Benefits

Location: Remote Working - Company HQ in South East

Are you a Sales Manager/ Director with experience in the air cargo industry? Are you ready for a new opportunity to take the reins of an established multi-media company that specialises in air freight?

Our client in Surrey may well have your perfect next role as their new Managing Director.

They've been in business for many years and have achieved great success in publishing hard copy and digital newspapers, newsletters, internet sites and selling stands at major transport logistic exhibitions. However, the original owners are now ready to retire, so they are looking for someone to take over the running of the business and develop it further.

Your fellow directors are all highly competent in their roles of Operations, Finance, Sales and Marketing, but they need someone with a strong sales skillset who can lead the team, network with the major advertising buyers and develop new key accounts.

The company has long-standing relationships with several of the world's largest airlines, airports, charter brokers and forwarders, particularly in the Middle East, USA and Europe, and is keen to build on these further.

Although they are based in Surrey, all the staff work remotely, so you'll need to have experience in managing remote teams. As for your background, you will know the sector well, having worked in the freight and logistics industry. Maybe you're now tired of all the travel involved in your current role but still want to keep your contacts and expand your network further.

Ideally, you will also have exhibition or media experience as you will need to be involved with the newspaper editor and freelance contributors to ensure they perform to the agreed service levels. However, it's more important that you have a strong sales track record and network within the international airfreight sector.

In return our client offers a competitive base salary and benefits package including a bonus linked to profit and the opportunity to become a Board Director in the future.

So, if you feel you'd like to take on this fascinating challenge, please indicate your interest by emailing your CV quoting reference LX 1178280 or call us on 01905 381 320.

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.
