National Sales Manager - Agrisea NZ Seaweed Ltd

Reference Number: 715833aa

Location: Waikato

  • Newly created field leadership role
  • Unique opportunity with award winning family business

Founded over twenty years ago in Paeroa, Agrisea New Zealand Seaweed Ltd is a family owned and operated business which has consolidated its position as the leading biological input company in this country.  Its success and unique business culture is award winning and is complemented by its support to community projects and its stakeholders.

Agrisea manufactures macro algae concentrates and bio-active extractions to add high value nutrition for soil, plant, animal and human health.  They supply to the horticulture, agriculture, apiculture, viticulture and dairy sectors in New Zealand and also service a growing export market.  The business has invested heavily in R&D over the past nine years, and it is the biggest investor in New Zealand in biological/organic products with an underlying commitment to soil, plant and animal health. 

Currently poised for significant planned growth, the company seeks to appoint a top flight and experienced National Sales Manager who will plan, implement and deliver the NZ sales strategy. 

Overseeing and supporting the national sales team and CRM functions, the sales leader we seek must offer a solid understanding of the rural community with essential experience in negotiating and setting up sales channels, also incorporating export markets.  An agricultural background in soil/plant science, micro-biology and agricultural chemicals will be highly advantageous and of particular importance will be the right cultural ‘fit’ for a family business which upholds all the traditional values it has successfully developed and consolidated over the past twenty years.  “On the road” team leadership skills will be important together with high levels of self- motivation and commercial acumen. For a self-starter with the adaptability and commitment to succeed at this level, this represents a unique opportunity to build a long-term career with this highly regarded business.
