Country Sales Manager

I am delighted to apply for the Country Sales and Marketing Manager opportunity advertised in the Daily Nation.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce, (Marketing) degree from the University of Nairobi coupled with an LCCI Higher Diploma in Public Relations, I set my sights on exploring a career in business development. As we live in a world with no borders, being comfortable with people from different countries and cultures is far more advantageous from my international development experience in Namibia, South Africa and Kenya.

I have successfully accomplished my three year assignment at Lwala Community Alliance. I have been managing local and international program grants for their business development unit. My portfolio included Johnson and Johnson, BD EA, KIVA, Thistle Farms (US), Population Council (US) and ARASA (South Africa). Specialised in client and media relations; strategic management; budgeting planning and execution and providing transformational leadership to a team of 20 as well as conveying written and verbal communication to internal and external stakeholders.

Passionate about growing businesses. Committed to managing time, creating time and making time work. I embrace challenges as new opportunities that are calling for strategic value addition to quality service delivery. Courageous to hold myself accountable, possessing leadership, motivation and purpose. Indomitable spirit and professionalism, keeping perspective and displaying a good sense of humour.

Demonstrate clear, articulate, and well-organized oral and written communications style. Proactively interacts and establishes rapport with people of diverse styles, backgrounds and job positions and levels. In a world that is increasingly global, competitive, and perhaps uncertain, how we handle adversity can determine the winners. I am able to lead a team and be a team member. Instilling a winning, “can-do” spirit among co-workers and team members, bringing out the best in them and lifting their level of play.

Enthusiastic about joining Goodman Agencies, I look forward to an interview with you and the board leading to a “win-win” employer-employee relationship beneficial to the organization, partners, beneficiaries and staff.
