SALES REP AND AREA MANAGER

I am writing to outline my extensive experience and successful track record in sales management. As you will see from my attached CV I meet your requirements in full and I truly believe I possess the skills, qualifications and vital experience necessary to make a very significant contribution to your sales operation.

I have a long and interesting career in sales beginning with my ownership of a pet-shop, I built the shop into a respected institution in the community as the authority on animal care through collaboration with local schools providing hands on education for young children in grooming, feeding and other basic tasks. The community links I built in these years were to serve me well in my later career with Waltons, as wherever I went the positive relationships I had built paid dividends in customer loyalty.

Fostering strong client relationships like this in whatever field I am in I have created a free-lance sales career from this talent, which I have taken up in-between full time jobs. I travel extensively and think nothing of staying overnight in order to secure a good deal. Currently I am assisting a new company in getting their sales off the ground supplying chicken products to many of the supermarket chains. Already in the first two months I have been working with them I have nearly doubled their sales. Similarly in 2007 I took an underperforming company manufacturing rubber-stamps and brought their sales up from R4k to R12k and
