    Distribution Manager CEE

    Would you like to join one of the world’s leaders in Animal Nutrition?

    In a world with limited natural resources and a growing population, the demand for food is constantly rising. Sustainably meeting this demand requires constant innovation and improvement – not only in our products, but also in our logistics, supply chain and distribution.

    If you are looking for a multi-disciplinary role that is focused on solving both practical issues and more abstract and complex problems in these areas, then Nutreco has the perfect job for you!

    What are you going to do?

    In the position of Distribution Manager Central-Eastern Europe, you will be responsible for increasing and maintaining the customer portfolio in several countries in Eastern Europe. The position is based on home office with frequent travels across Balkan and neighboring countries and regular meetings in the international headquarters, based in Prague, Czech Republic.

    This position is focused on a territory in which we have a relatively small footprint compared to other regions. This means that our Distribution Manager works largely independently and has fewer ties to the corporate hierarchy than usual, only reporting to the Area Manager. This way of working provides less assistance and requires a significant degree of self-reliance. However, it offers the perfect opportunity to leverage your experience and expertise, implement you own ideas and have an immense individual impact on our organization and our customers in return!

    The Distribution Manager CEE will be dealing with complex business partnerships (distributors, feed mills, key accounts) related to the monogastrics sector (swine and poultry), so prior experience in this field is a significant advantage.

    What are your key accountabilities?

    • Distributor management of existing distributors.
    • Account management of farmers/integrators.
    • Finding new distributors in key areas.
    • Responsible for the sales of TN Hifeed’s product portfolio either through direct sales or through distributors.
    • Development of yearly market plans, commercial policies, and budgets.
    • Accountable for the results and reporting of results in designated territory.
    • Support actual business activities of Nutreco companies or their agents and distributors in the area.
    • Develop sales volume and achieve agreed targets.
    • Generation and feedback of market intelligence to TN organization.
    • Participation in commercial and international meetings in the international headquarter.

    Main Tasks:

    • Develop annual accounts plans for larger partners.
    • Develop new business opportunities with existing and new partners.
    • Based on a structured calling plan support partners, merchants and develop their ability to sell our products.
    • Organize technical support for your clients from our core support team.
    • Report sales developments and issue forecasts for the defined area.
