Lumber Sales Representative
We are looking for a sales professional to help expand market presence across Texas and Oklahoma.
The successful candidate will be a driver, not an order taker. You will have a forest products sales background and be experienced and competent in the area of wood products. The role will involve sustaining and growing revenues within existing customer relationships. It will also involve generating new business amongst multiple sales channels including specialty manufacturers, traders and brokers, distributors, retailers, and other customers in the home building and construction sectors. We would prefer to find a candidate who has worked for a small to mid sized sawmill operation that can pivot production to attack market opportunities, vs. someone who has only worked in a major corporation with centralized national/international sales operations.
The hired candidate will work in an established organization who appreciates a mix of old school work values, professional communication style, and a “show me don’t tell me” business culture. You will be based from home and be expected to travel regionally for customer visits and other related activities. The ideal candidate is intermediate level experience (3-5 years of related experience), and interested in a long-term career within their next employer. Must have valid driver’s license.
