• Business Development Executive – Ports Industry
• Can you help us transform the ports industry to contribute towards a more sustainable world, whilst simultaneously ensuring business growth?
• Are you a creative and forward-thinking leader with a passion for building relationships and identifying new opportunities? Client is seeking leaders like you to join our team and drive growth in the Ports Industry.
• As a Business Development Executive, you will be responsible for building relationships with strategic customers in the Ports Industry. You will drive future growth by identifying target customers for rapid expansion and helping to build alliances and partnerships, bringing creative ideas and opportunities to Client.

• Understanding accountability – the comfort and acknowledgment that sales and business developments are results-based. Client believes passionately in building an environment of trust, empowerment, and support, it is also critical that sales and business development people in our organization understand the meaning of accountability
