What does a day in the life of a Director of Sales look like? 

A day in the life of a TRAFFIX Director of Sales could include some or all of the following: 

  • Building and maintaining customer relationships 
  • Identifying further business opportunities to expand TRAFFIX business with the branch’s clients 
  • Monitoring trends and changes in customer purchase behaviour and following up to determine the root cause 
  • Proactively identifying potential problems and resolving them before they escalate  
  • Accompanying members of the sales team on discovery calls and in-person meetings 
  • Assist your team with generating pricing strategies that fit the client’s budget while supporting the success of the branch 
  • Monitor trends in the sales team’s performance 
  • Recruit and onboard new sales staff as needed while always keeping your pipeline of top talent warm 
  • Develop and promote monthly, quarterly, and annual sales targets for each member of the sales team

Who are you? 

After at least five years working in a Director of Sales role, you have become an expert multi-tasker, active listener, and excellent communicator with a friendly and confident personality. You love getting to know people and building lasting relationships. You display empathy when dealing with client challenges and use emotional intelligence to guide your interactions. 

You are a compassionate leader that trusts your team to work hard without being micromanaged; however, you are ready to step in when one of your reports is struggling.  

Strategy is your passion! You love the challenge of getting to know the players on your team and leveraging their strengths to win! Collaborating with your sales reps, you devise plans that knock down obstacles, win RFPs, and close business.  

When a problem comes your way – you face it head on. You look for creative ways to solve the problem and understand that mistakes should be considered opportunities to learn and grow. 

You love sales! Hunting for new business and delighting customers is your team’s top priority and you will go above and beyond to support them in those efforts.  

Come work with TRAFFIX! Named by the Chicago Tribune as one of 2021's Top Workplaces!
