Chief Executive Officer – Singapore
(Relocation anticipated and supported)
Compensation negotiable. Fixed anticipated at circa €150k plus strong variable which will include share options.
Opportunity for a sales focused MD / CEO to join a Singaporean start-up providing a new zero-waste packaging system initially to the automotive manufacturing industry – but with clear scope to grow in other sectors. Fluent English and German are an essential requirement for this role, as are an extensive knowledge of the German automotive OEMs and their logistics and packaging requirements.
Although this is a start-up, the business has been established and is backed by individuals who have already built and run a multi-million $ business in the container / logistics sector with global reach and a strong presence in the auto market. They are well networked with their anticipated customer base with whom they have already widely demonstrated this product. This is a non-competing product and market feedback has been exceptionally positive with a clear market requirement established.
Available for lease, these Euro Containers or KLT boxes are entirely re-usable and reconfigurable – using a newly patented system that results in no dunnage being discarded at any stage. Additionally, they will provide a fully digitalised track and trace system that can be used for cross continental parts and component transport.
Our client is now looking for an exceptional individual to lead the team in Singapore (currently 10), recruit a talented team around them and drive the global sales of this innovative product – currently at manufacturing stage. Sales people are currently being recruited or are already in place across a number of key markets
We are looking for an individual with a track record in leading a highly commercial operation selling to automotive OEMs within Northern Europe with a focus on Germany. You are extremely well connected within this sector – and your knowledge extends to the logistics and packaging requirements of this industry.
You can demonstrate that you have guided an organisation through significant growth. You are entrepreneurial, self-sufficient and can operate without the support of corporate machinery.
You will need to be based in Singapore and be prepared for significant travel. Relocation support will be provided. Being based in Singapore is a requirement and not negotiable.
This is a fantastic opportunity to join a start-up with an outstanding pedigree. Their previous start-up currently operates in more than 80 countries and was sold to a US Equity business.
