THE ‘WALLY PIPP’ ROLE (OTE: $120,000 – $135,000+)

WallyPipp.png

On June 2, 1925, the New York Yankees were on a five-game losing streak … and their miserable record had them slotted in second-to-last place in the American League. Upon arriving at Yankee Stadium, one of their star players – Wally Pipp, was complaining about a headache … and asked the team trainer for 2 aspirins.

The team’s manager, Miller Huggins happened to overhear the discussion and said … “Wally, take the day off … we’ll try that kid Gehrig at first today … and get you back in there tomorrow.”

This would mark the first game of Lou Gehrig’s career … and he would go on to play an incredible 2,130 consecutive games … over the next 14 seasons!

Years later, Wally Pipp would go on to say … “I took the two most expensive aspirin in history.”

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Well … nothing really.

That said … the term “carpe diem” was never more relevant.

Lou Gehrig seized the opportunity to showcase his value … and if you’re a senior sales professional who is ready to step into sales management … this may be your opportunity to do the same!

THE ‘BLINK’ ROLE (OTE: $80,000 – $85,000)

MF SIGN - HATE TO TELL YOU - THIS BABY'S GONE

One night in 1953 … Robert Kearns and his lovely bride were celebrating their wedding night.
But … what’s a wedding celebration without the popping of champagne!?!?!?

Milliseconds after one of the bottles was popped … the cork struck Robert … leaving him legally blind in his left eye!
To make matters worse … Robert would also go on to suffer from irregular blinking patterns.

Ten years later … as he was driving his car in a light rain … the continuous motion of his car’s wiper blades not only irritated his limited vision … but more importantly … sparked an idea that would ultimately result in millions of dollars in his bank account!

Inspired by the the human eye (which blinks every few seconds) … Kearns invented the intermittent windshield wiper – an idea that would eventually find its way into every vehicle across the globe.

What does this have to do with my current role? Well … nothing really.
That said … this role is pretty awesome … so it will be gone in the blink of an eye!

POSITION:                SALES EXECUTIVE (ADVERTISING) (1 YEAR CONTRACT)
REPORTS TO:           VP, SALES
TERRITORY:               GTA (HOME BASED OFFICE)
INDUSTRY:                ADVERTISING (OOH)

SUMMARY:

This is a 12-month contract role (covering a maternity leave).
My client does have the option of creating another territory … if this person ‘shoots the lights out’!

My client is a national retail media firm with a focus on creative, mass outreach advertising based on under-utilized consumer traffic data in grocery stores.

If you’re looking for a sales role with a suffocating, micro-management structure – this role is NOT for you.

This role requires someone with structured and disciplined sales success.
The company exudes a ‘fresh’ and liberating work structure.
Direction, support and training are abundant … apron strings … are not!

Based from a home office and reporting to the VP, you will be responsible for both business development (75%) and account management (25%) in the GTA.
To be successful, you will need to think “outside of the proverbial box” and formulate & deliver inspired solutions to delight your target client base.

I’m looking for a candidate that is exceptionally self-driven, hungry … and knows how to hustle!  The hunter mentality is rewarded remarkably well at this organization.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Working independently to aggressively hunt for new accounts across the GTA
  • Build and maintain an active network of clients through strong account management by ensuring retention through providing tailor value-added solutions
  • Full cycle sales process from prospecting through to closing … and post sales


REQUIREMENTS:

  • MUST HAVE: 3 to 5 years of B2B sales experience (hunting)
  • MUST HAVE: University degree or equivalent education
  • BIG PLUS: Experience in the media / advertising industry
  • Must be inspired & hungry … and not need a fire lit beneath you to get down to business
  • Must have strong entrepreneurial skills and the ability to work independently


REMUNERATION:

BASE SALARY: $50,000 – $55,000
ON-TARGET VARIABLE: $30,000
ON-TARGET EARNINGS: $80,000 – $85,000 (uncapped)
OTHER: Home Office, Benefits
