Sales/Marketing Coach Wanted
ProBatter Sports, LLC., an established Milford, CT based supplier of baseball and softball equipment, seeks a part-time (2-3 days a week) "coach" with a strong track record to mentor and work on-site with our sales and marketing team to help refine, develop and focus their efforts to enhance sales.
The ideal candidate is a former CEO or sales/marketing executive with a passion for baseball and an abundance of energy. We would consider recently retired executives who are tired of playing golf and want to share what they've learned and experienced with the younger generation. In baseball parlance, they will function as a bench coach for the manager, e.g., Don Zimmer to Joe Torre. They must be current on contemporary marketing techniques, including on-line and social media marketing, experiential marketing techniques and the use of CRM software to manage prospect and customer lists and potential sales. Program management skills would be extremely helpful.
They will work with our small sales team to:
- help identify the best candidates
- develop good sales techniques
- overcome obstacles
- close deals.
Experience in the sporting goods field, particularly baseball or softball, plus selling on a B to B basis is a plus.
Compensation for the right individual would include a consulting fee with a performance bonus and a possibly equity position. This is not a position for the classic consultant who wants to come in, undertake a 2-3 month study and render a report. Rather, it is for someone who is a quick study and is willing to roll up their sleeves and make a difference right out of the box. Ideally, they will be local as commuting takes time away from the job at hand and drains energy. Must be willing to travel on an occasional basis. Send resumes to plus a list of references and expectations for compensation.
Company Description ProBatter Sports is the industry leader in high tech, video pitching simulators for all levels of baseball, softball and cricket. As we expand our product line, we are seeking a mentor or coach to work with our existing management team to help get us to the next level.
