Gapsted Wines, located near Myrtleford in Victoria's stunning High Country, is an award-winning winery producing premium cool climate wines from the King and Alpine Valleys. Gapsted produces innovative wine varieties including Petit Manseng and Saperavi, as well as classic styles such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot and Chardonnay.
Reporting directly to the CEO and Chief Winemaker and working closely with the key members of the Management Team (based either at the winery or another Victorian centre), the responsibilities of this pivotal business development role will include:
- increasing Gapsted’s domestic sales volumes through both existing and new sales channels;
- preparing and implementing annual sales plans and budgets and sustaining product margins in order to maximise profit;
- maintaining and further developing close working relationships with key accounts and distributors;
- building a support program for retailers and other sellers and reporting on sales performance and market trends.
Applications are invited from experienced sales professionals preferably with appropriate qualifications. Wine industry, key account management and brand development experience will be highly regarded but is not essential. Excellent verbal and written communication skills combined with drive, energy, initiative, authenticity, flexibility and an absolute commitment to customer service will be essential qualities in the successful appointee.
This represents a rare opportunity for a dynamic candidate with the ambition and potential to grow the role to also encompass international sales for this buoyant and successful business.
