GSM/DOS Small TV Market

Sales|   Northeast

Job #1041762

A small company continuously owned for nearly 25 years is looking for a GSM/DOS for their 2 TV stations plus their local website.  If you are looking to get away from burdensome layers of corporate management, this is a great opportunity for you.  The influence you bring throughout the building will be broad and deep and only limited by your imagination. You will have freedom of action and never have to justify your day.  If you have an idea, it can happen! Dream up your own sales promotions or contests and have the autonomy to make deals. 

The market is a great place to raise a family as they have great public schools.  No pollution so you can enjoy the outdoor lifestyle this affords like whale-watching to fly fishing, hiking, biking and kayaking.

The ideal candidate is someone that can lead a sales force and wants to be a part of the community.  If you are a current small/medium sized market LSM or GSM we want to talk with you! This is a great position for someone on the way up the management chain.

 

Any interested manager must have a proven track record of maximizing revenue, inventory, employee performance and training, as well as have a desire to be a leader in the local community.
