 Sales Management is key…


The Sales Manager leads the sales team, creates and executes sales strategies and drives sales through effective leadership. This function is especially critical for Scale-ups, and small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) – needed to build a scalable team, boost sales and achieve rapid growth.


At the same time, growing teams find it difficult to invest in a full-time Sales Manager, as the team is still small, and resources need to be destined to other resources such as additional salespeople before adding management layers.
