About the job

In this role you drive the execution of the Commercial Excellence Roadmap, based on a project based approach. This means you will be working on for example a project to generate more topline growth or to increase the profitability on the short and medium term. You always work in cross functional teams, where you will gently “push” the discussion and decisions in the right direction, following the strategic imperatives of the organization and factual insights gathered by yourself and the team.

  • Will lead the development, roll-out & anchoring of the Commercial Excellence Road Map for the Benelux to drive an effective go-to market approach and to ensure cross functional high performance and productivity;
  • Develop and implement, together with the Sales and Marketing department, different marketing & sales projects in line with the strategic imperatives of the organization;

You are a conceptual self-starter and change agent with proven business acumen. You don’t shy away from synthesizing large amount of information.
