Our client has been in business for well over a century now. In other words, you can rest assured that they are here to stay. They are in the business of distributing industrial supply products across North America.
You don’t stay in business this long without being exceptional at what you do. Building a distribution network that is “second-to-none” is one of their strengths. Offering competitive pricing and services that provide valuable solutions for their customers is another. But their main reason for this historical success as a sales-driven company, is consistently hiring the absolute top sales reps on the market to come work for them.
Speaking of the top sales reps on the market, my client is looking to hire one in Milton, Ontario. They have asked us to assist them in finding the next super star Account Executive to join their team.

In addition, using Professional Selling Skills, they will uncover new business opportunities within their territory. They will be selling everything from hand tools, power tools, fasteners and safety products. Oh, and did I mention that they are a Canadian run company? Bonus!
