Working closely with our three global product category teams (windows, blinds/shutters and growth products) in GPM, your primary responsibility will be to act as a commercial sparring partner for our sales companies in the South region and ensure product strategy execution in each of the sales companies locally. You will perform regular performance follow-up, suggest corrective actions and continuously challenge the sales companies to optimise their product portfolio, positioning, product communication and exploit their market potential.

It is important that you can drive results through others in a global operating environment with many stakeholders and where your key contacts are situated in several different countries
You like being busy, you are hardworking, practical, have a hands-on approach and are good at planning your time and prioritising your tasks. With many different things to do and tight deadlines, you are structured and analytical in your approach to task solving and can keep your cool under pressure.
Lastly, you are fluent in English, both written and spoken and have a strong command of at least one other European language.
You will be part of a committed, dynamic and business-oriented team in a large international company, where you will be responsible for your own geographical area, and where you in cooperation with GPM, our Commercial Managers and the local sales companies will develop and grow markets.
