MOVE THE NEEDLE (OTE: $63,000 – $74,000+)

In 2010, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport set a land speed record, for production vehicles, travelling 430.98 km/h.

In 2017, the Koenigsegg Agera RS did even better … clocking in at 447.23km/h.

And, in October 2020 … SSC Tuatara Hyper-car set a new Guinness Record when the needle on its speedometer topped out at an unbelievable 508.72 km/h.

To put that in perspective, (if it were logistically possible) … at that speed, you could travel from Toronto to Montreal – in just over 1 hour!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s role?
Not much, really.

That said, our automotive industry client is looking for a Sales Executive who can ‘move the needle’, when it comes to their GTA territory.

SUMMARY:

Based from a home office (with a company vehicle and gas card) … the Sales Executive will develop a geographic territory via a blend of business development and account management.

This individual must have the ability to analyze client needs and present convincing, value-based solutions.

The Sales Executive will own a list of approximately 100 – 120 accounts. Some of these accounts conduct minimal business with our client … while others are virtually exclusive! Your job … is to move that needle!

Given the account mix, you will need to nurture current clients, while actively prospecting to secure new ones.

THE ‘KNOCKER-UPPER’ ROLE (OTE: $150,000 – $160,000)

KnockerUpper.png

In 18th century Britain … alarm clocks were neither reliable … nor cheap!
Even so … people still had to make sure they woke up on-time to get to work!
So … what did they do?

Well … they did what all their neighbours were doing.
They hired a “knocker-upper” to rouse them from their slumber.

This individual would carry a baton and knock on clients’ doors.
If clients lived on higher floors … they’d use a long stick … (often made from bamboo) to reach their bedroom windows.
The “knocker-upper” wouldn’t leave a client’s window until they were certain their client had climbed out of bed.

In return, the knocker-up would be paid a few pence a week.
Talk about a lousy job!?!?

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
