So, if you’re already working in Retail at C-suite level, with an extensive network of similar professionals within your industry, and a proven track record of success at this level, and are considering the next major step in your career development, then we’d like to hear from you.
As a Director Retail Industry, your primary focus is to create value with, and for, Teradata technology by focusing on the largest opportunities for the selling of assets, solutions and consulting services at scale.
Broadly, this means
- You’ll proactively engage with both field sales teams and Teradata clients and prospects to deliver business outcomes at scale across our EMEA organisation. So your considerable experience in Retail, and specific in-depth expertise in segments or functional areas of that industry, is vital.
- With your extensive network of senior leaders and decision makers, you’ll report on trends and new developments within their organisations, and relay that knowledge to our marketing and sales activities, while supporting innovation and thought leadership.
- Your strong grasp of the business value associated with the data domain – data warehouse applications, big data analytics, business intelligence, and advanced analytics – is essential for providing our Business Outcome Partners with effective long-term outlooks for targeting opportunities for Teradata to offer solutions at scale for our clients.
- The collaborative nature of your role requires very strong team-building and working capabilities. And your excellent communication skills will help you successfully communicate your thoughts and ideas to all of the agencies you’ll have contact with – colleagues, media and clients, from the ground up and on to the C-suites.
More specifically, you’ll be responsible for
- Making Teradata a thought leader in the industry by developing collateral and customer facing material, evangelizing Teradata’s point of view at industry events, such as Forbes Live, and building a social media presence within the industry.
- Building our Retail Industry Practice through ongoing development of industry business outcome concepts, methodologies, templates and material for both internal and external (client) use – and support account teams with specific opportunities to integrate in their account plans.
- Coaching and mentoring sales teams to provide support and clear direction on the value and deployment of retail industry data management and business outcome concepts to the organization overall – but specifically to the Business Outcome Partners and Account Executives.
- Engaging your clients to see the value of accelerating their business analytical roadmap – documenting their current baseline value realized as well as desired future value opportunities from the use of Teradata technologies.
- Passionate and enthusiastic about your industry, data, and analytics – can you tell a story with data that excites your clients and convinces them of its business value?
- A BSc, MSc or MBA in a science, business, technical or professional discipline, or equivalent work experience
- At least 10+ years industry experience in Retail at a senior level – including demonstrable experience in selling commercial packaging of complex solutions involving software and consulting services, projects and programs
- Experienced in transformation processes with an ability to lead change management initiatives
- A clear, confident and persuasive communicator, who can make a clear and understandable logical argument and successfully defend their position – especially when making the case to decision makers at the highest levels
