PALLITE® – Sales Manager, North America

Finding a Sales Manager in North America for PALLITE®

PALLITE® are a rapidly expanding sustainable packaging manufacturer operating globally. They enlisted Gillespie Manners to help them source a Sales Manager for their North American region.

We asked PALLITE®’s hiring manager and the candidate we placed to tell us about their experience working with Gillespie Manners Global Executive Search. 

The Challenge:

PALLITE® is a UK headquartered business whose rapid growth led them into overseas expansion. They’re on a mission to develop their business across North America, Europe and APAC. This territorial expansion posed a challenge for the business’s small UK team. 

PALLITE® enlisted the support of Gillespie Manners in their multi-territory expansion. Our global reach means that we can source talent seamlessly across the globe. 

The Solution:

The Gillespie Manners team offered bespoke advice and guidance to PALLITE®, working with them on a consultative basis to provide support for multiple staffing assignments. 

For their North American Sales Manager position, a shortlist of top-calibre candidates was identified and methodologically headhunted. Instead of relying upon inbound applications, passive candidates were chosen for their unique skillsets and experience and proactively headhunted. 

The successful candidate, Jake Smith, was placed in the role in-line with PALLITE®’s timeline and budget expectations. 

Client Feedback:
