Head of Partnerships
New York, NY
If this sounds like you, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About The Role //
We are seeking our first Head of Partnerships.
To date, we’ve grown in both revenue and headcount via our personal networks, and word of mouth. We’ve also been fortunate to receive quite a bit of repeat business. Business development has been managed by members of the leadership team, but it is time to bring in a dedicated leader.
This hire will manage the following:
How potential clients hear about us
How we present ourselves to those potential clients
How we shepherd those initial conversations into lasting relationships.
We are looking for someone highly personable who can partner seamlessly with the leadership team to uncover potential, and perhaps previously untapped, leads. We are seeking someone versed in the strategic targeting of net new business and a proven history of conversion. We are looking for a team player who is intrinsically driven to grow business holistically.
The role is officially open and approved and we will move to offer when we meet the right candidate. The Head of Partnerships compensation package will include a competitive base salary, solid benefits, and a commission structure, percentage emphasizing overall growth vs. simply net new wins.
