Export Sales Manager (French, Spanish and English)
I am a Trilingual Export Sales Manager (French, Spanish and English) with 10+ years background in the Fragrance, Cosmetics and Luxury sector. I’m French with German and Mediterranean background.
As Export Sales Manager, in 3 years, I multiplied by x5 the turnover of my region, working hand in hand with my European distributors, from 1.2 million to 6.5 million Euros, building good, stable and trustworthy relationships with them.
I am, and I need to be, passionate about my Job. I am bubbly, problem solving, sales and challenge oriented, customer focused, with great Customer service skills and I am not scared of being hands on.
I love travelling, I love being in the field, I love meeting people with different cultures and finding solutions to problems. I love selling, training people, finding solutions of how to improve the sales, the brand image and awareness in sync with the core values of my company. I am also a relationship builder: I work hand in hand with my customers, on a trust worthy and win- win collaboration, in order to make the brand grow nicely and on the long term. Today, I am looking for a company where I could stay and grow with and within it. Learning, growth and challenges are very important for me as much as the brand and company I will work for as they need to inspire me. As I am from a multicultural background, I am looking for an international role in an International Company. I’m resilient, passionate, problem solver and think outside of the box therefore I’m quite independent and don’t need micromanagement.
Since September, I have started a Bachelor in Marketing & Communication in order to validate my skills
