Reporting to the President of Fraser and Hoyt Incentives, you will lead a strong team in offering meeting and conference services of the highest calibre throughout Atlantic Canada to clients from across Canada and the United States. To do this, you will build strong working relationships with clients and business partners, manage an aggressive sales and marketing campaign, ensure the needs of clients are fully met, and maintain a supportive community-based culture within the team.
What qualities are needed for this role?
The Managing Director of downeast destination management must be a multi-talented person who brings a blend of leadership talents, business development skills and personal qualities to the table. Someone who can think long-term yet, at the same time, deal with the “hands-on”, day-to-day operations of running a demanding business.
