Business Development Manager - Trucking (18930148) Atlanta, Georgia

America is focusing on energy: the expanding circle of environmental concerns, the need to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, the desire to find better solutions - something greater for America, from America. In this climate it's not difficult to start a conversation about the future of energy, and at Clean Energy you will be empowered to transform that conversation into action. If you have a strong transportation background and the sales talent to not just sell a commodity "swap" as you'd do with diesel, but to sell a new platform for entire fleets, the Business Development Manager role, focused on fleet and truck sales, offers you the optimal platform to not only build a lucrative career with growth potential, but to be an evangelist for change that is good for the environment, the bottom-line, and America.

To be a good fit for the opportunity of Business Development Manager, Trucking, you will need:
  • A bachelor's degree or the equivalent combination of education and experience.
  • At least five years of experience within the trucking industry -- major trucking company, OEM, etc. You should be able to readily gain credibility by demonstrating strong industry knowledge.
  • A love of sales and the drive to build a strong book of business.
  • Success with extended-cycle sales. The sales cycle is typically between six and eighteen months.
  • Strong oral and written communication skills, including the ability to develop well-considered proposals, business letters, emails, etc.
