What You’ll Do

Managing a local sales team is just the start of your adventure as an LSM. While overseeing all sales activities, you’ll create a high-performing, fun, and successful team-based environment. You’ll be spending a lot of time in the field with your sales consultants, joining them for client meetings so you can build those relationships and find opportunities to coach.

You’ll provide ongoing training for your team as well, helping them learn the skills and strategies necessary to be successful and exceed their goals.
Well count on you to use our television and digital advertising solutions as the foundation of your marketing campaigns so we can continue to grow in local and regional markets. You’ll share things like sales activities, metrics, forecasts and such with some of our senior leadership so they are aligned with your teams progress and opportunities. You’ll also connect with the local business community, attending events and building relationships with the people who help our communities prosper.
What’s In It For You?

First things first. For this role, you can count on competitive pay and a highly competitive commission/bonus plan that allows you to increase your income the more your team sells. Well celebrate your success with awards like our Winners Circle trip to exotic destinations.
