This is a brand-new role so if you are the right person, you can really make it your own. We are looking for a Specialised Fitness Equipment Sales Distribution Manager for a very long standing client.

This is not a direct sales role. It’s more…long term marketing/ researching/ attending trade and fitness exhibitions across UK and Europe with additional visits to Shanhai and USA. These exhibitions lead to long term contracts /agreements with for example; wholesalers of fitness equipment who will buy the products and sell them on to gyms, fitness studios etc.

Exports to USA/Ca/SA/China/Europe/Russia.

You will need to have already worked in the fitness sector OR be a super fitness fan/equipment user AND will be used to developing profitable relationships across the distribution channels.

Working closely with the enineering/entrepenurial MD you will be fully trained to understand the USPs/sales proposition etc. BUT you must be a self starter. You will really need to be outgoing, creative and forward thinking! You will become the face of the company.
