We are Fenice Community Media, publishers of four community newspapers, a suburban newspaper, and a variety of other print and digital products. We are currently seeking qualified candidates for Director of Sales based out of our home office located in Cedar Park.
We are seeking a forward-thinking sales leader with a proven track record in media sales of print and digital advertising products and services. We need a capable salesperson who can lead by example to grow revenue across our group. We want to do new things to generate revenue and the right person for this job is someone who isn’t afraid to work hard and think outside the traditional ‘community newspaper’ box.
This position will be expected to be involved in moving our advertising sales efforts forward from the ground up, teaching our staff the necessary skills and techniques to sell print and digital products in today’s evolving media environment while planning and overseeing revenue projections and implementing new tools and strategies to help our staff accomplish their goals.
This is a multi-faceted position but is rooted in the need to drive sales and revenue through personal involvement in and oversight of every facet of sales company-wide, handling a personal book of accounts to lead by example by way of exceeding personal sales goals.
Travel will be a significant part of this job. However, as all but one of our newspapers are located within a 150-mile radius of Cedar Park, much of the work at individual newspapers can be accomplished with day trips.
The candidate we are seeking has a track record of success in selling print and digital advertising products in a newspaper environment, with an additional background in small community newspapers. This person will be an inspiring leader who gets things done by leading the charge and setting the example. The candidate must have outstanding written and verbal communication skills, as s/he will be responsible for developing training materials and leading training programs and workshops group-wide.
The successful candidate will enjoy a competitive, incentive-driven compensation plan as well as health insurance and generous paid time off benefits. If you're ready for the challenge, we welcome your application including resume, cover letter highlighting your relevant qualifications and track record of success, as well as salary requirements.
