Position title
Outside Sales Representative - Shipbuilding Industry


My client is a fast-growing, “wood-alternative” product & solutions manufacturer. They offer a lower cost product made from recycled materials into the workboat/shipbuilding industry along with several others who use wood to produce their products. Having been opened since the early 1990’s, my client is positioned perfectly with the rising costs of wood and the increased scarcity of it.

We are currently building out a sales team of twenty professionals across the USA, and one of these twenty being located in Newport News, VA. The right candidate will have a successful track record of selling a product into the Workboat/Shipbuilding, Government, Trailer manufacturing or Commercial Transportation industries. Target first year’s earnings is $125k – $135k. This will include a base salary plus strong commission structure, company vehicle and more.

Company culture is terrific as the CEO believes in humility and rewarding his team members before himself. He works hard to foster an environment of creative thought and initiative and this cannot be fostered through self-promotion. Truly a great man with a great team who is set to expand rapidly in the next several years. As a result, we are looking for talented sales professionals who have experience not only closing contracts in an office with a client, but also at a restaurant, on a golf course, etc. Looking for someone who is self-motivated, creative, takes initiative and is ready to work hard for a long term successful career in Sales.

If this sounds like you, then I want to hear from you today!
