Job Description

Since 1975, Holmes + Brakel () has been delivering unparalleled services in the furniture industry. Specializing in offices and workplaces, we offer a full suite of services that encompasses design, sourcing, and installation. Our success would be impossible without our unwavering customer focus; as a family business, we've been able to maintain that focus since we started.

We're looking to add a new member to our sales team: someone who understands the industry, has a proven sales ability, and is ready to work under the heat and pressure of a growing company.

You'll manage expectations from beginning to end. Your great communication skills will keep your client well informed with project timelines, keeping their project on track.

These are intricate sales, where you'll manage competing priorities, multiple internal and external stakeholders, and varying deliverables. Your experience in a similarly complex sales environment will be crucial for your success here.

The number of projects you'll have on the go at any given time will vary depending on their size and scope. You'll be part of a collaborative and successful team.

You'll receive a competitive base salary commensurate with experience and commission structure. You'll also enjoy health benefits, paid vacation, and car and cell phone allowances.

While we've experienced great success over the years, we've also stayed true to our roots as a family business. Our employees love it here, and people tend to stay with us for a long time, and we hope you will too!
