We are on the hunt for a Senior Regional Sales Manager to work with a Digital Art Platform in London.

ABOUT: The goal of the company is to give art dealers of Modern and Contemporary art a confidential, secure, and efficient digital tool to expand the reach of their network and increase private sales.
JOB DESCRIPTION: As Senior Regional Sales Manager, your primary responsibility will be to maintain active relationships with members, and help them use the platform to allow them to transact successfully. These members are mostly top-tier galleries, you will therefore be required to demonstrate a unique blend of art world knowledge, humility, empathy, creative insight, self-motivation, team-work, and attention to detail. The emphasis is on sales between members and your role is to ensure the sale happens, by sourcing all of the necessary details to ensure a smooth transaction. The role requires an individual who not only excels at fostering external relationships within the arts community, but who is also willing to roll up their sleeves and help galleries by providing technical support using the platform. You will maintain timely communication with colleagues based in New York, Paris, London and Berlin. You must be self-motivated and thrive on the ability to work autonomously.
The ideal candidate is a dedicated, knowledgeable, articulate, and target driven ambassador for the company, who is equally comfortable strolling the aisles at major art fairs as digging into the CRM to meticulously track outreach efforts and improve conversion rates.
