VP Sales & Marketing, Consumer Division


Key role in Nilfisk’s Global Consumer Division

Nilfisk is dedicated to delivering cleaning equipment that meets and exceeds their customers’ expectations. This is based on the tradition of innovation and quality for over 100 years. Nilfisk’s global presence makes it possible to support the customers with broad product lines, and Nilfisk believes that good cooperation is based on an open dialogue.

Global role within an organisation with huge ambitions
Nilfisk Consumer division operates in the market for domestic cleaning appliances. The focus is on two primary business areas: The DIY market with a strong range of high-pressure washers and other specialty products. Secondly Nilfisk offers a strong range of vacuum cleaners, predominantly sold within electronic retail. The sales channels also include a strong focus on online sales.

In this role you will lead the Consumer Sales and Marketing organisation across all markets. The consumer business operates with a relatively small central (HQ) function and active sales teams across markets, predominantly in Western Europe. In addition, you will lead the international marketing team who supports the sales activities across all markets.

You will execute the sales excellence agenda throughout your organisation, implement new tools and make sure that your team has the competencies to perform at their best. In this way you will take the business to the next level going forward.

The management of the markets is based on a regional setup of a total of 6 Sales Directors/managers who will report directly to the VP Sales & Marketing. In addition, a Global KAM function and a Marketing Manager reports to the VP Sales & Marketing, in total a team of 80 people.

Can you execute and take sales to the next level?
We expect you to have a background within consumer goods; preferably from FMCG, consumer electronics or another relevant consumer business with a fast pace. You are strong within sales, and preferably you have also had the responsibility of marketing. We expect you to have international experience, and maybe you come from a role as Sales Director, Commercial Director or Sales & Marketing Director from a larger organisation. Since there is an online focus in this role, we also expect that you have some experience within online sales. You are accustomed to working in an international matrix, you are able to lead from a distance, and you are motivated to take this business to the next level in every way.
