The Opportunity

This is your chance to run your own business within a fast-paced company which sits at the crossroads of education and international travel.  What resources you need, what strategy to take, how to spend your time and where you invest your budget are all decisions you will make on a daily basis.  You can see the big picture and are always looking with a critical eye for opportunities to innovate.  At the same time, you believe that no task is beneath you and are not afraid to roll up your sleeves and get in there.  As you drive sales growth in your region you understand that a close connection to your customers and providing outstanding service will be the key to your ever-growing brand presence.  You must be confident in your ability to consistently deliver results but have the humility to learn from those around you.  Whether it’s hiring new talent or helping ensure the success of existing superstars, you will motivate and inspire your team in any way necessary.  Your successes will not just impact your region but they will drive the overall marketing and product development strategies across the entire business. Finally, you will be at the forefront of an organization which is shaping the global perspective of the next generation of leaders.  In addition to all of this you will receive: 

  • Competitive compensation and outstanding benefits
  • A strong voice within the organization directly reporting to the Vice President of Sales
