Sales Director - Luxury Yacht Travel - Midwest Region

Company: SeaDream Yacht Club
Location: Dallas
Posted on: September 24, 2022

Job Description:

Are you a seasoned hunter in the travel industry looking to sell a product that is hands down the best in its class?

Are you ready to sell a product that exceeds customer expectations?

Has your current role ceased to excite you?

If you're nodding your head right now, you'll want to keep reading.

We are looking for an experienced sales rep with serious hunter skills to cover our Midwest territory.

But this is no average sales role.

SeaDream is a luxury travel company specializing in providing our travelers with unprecedented levels of service and experience.

For over 30 years, our founder has been innovating the luxury cruise industry. As we emerge from the pandemic of the last two years, he is working on exciting plans to do this again.

We have a fiercely loyal client base, many of whom have sailed with us 50, even 100 or more times. Our repeat business leads the industry because our product delivers once-in-a-lifetime experiences every time people voyage with us. The problem? We are the "best-kept secret" in the industry! The travel professionals in your region need to hear about us, and not only that, help us gain access to their clients so that we can sell them the "dream."

That's what we are doing; here is what we need from our candidates to ensure that we continue to deliver the SeaDream experience.

Our first requirement is that you have experience selling luxury products. If they are luxury travel products, such as luxury hotels, yachts, or resorts, that is a plus. In other words, you should have experience selling to HNW/UNHW people. (If you had to look that up, you might not be the candidate.) Why is this so important? Your primary role is to work with the travel agent community to sell full-yacht charters and conduct face-to-face meetings with consumers in the luxury space.

Second, we are looking for a hunter. We want someone who enjoys picking up the phone, tracking down leads, following up relentlessly on promises and deals, and, most importantly, closing sales!

Above all else, you must have a passion for travel and an unrelenting belief that SeaDream is the best product available on the market.

Here are a few non-negotiable items.

10+ years in the luxury travel industry. The luxury aspect is vital. You currently work with the high-net-worth community-you belong to the clubs, know the players, and have relationships with consumers of bespoke experiences. We desire specific relevant experience in yachting or luxury cruise sales via direct and travel partners.

Ability to travel up to 70% of the time within your multi-state territory. You can expect to spend 3-4 nights per week in a hotel.

A track record of consistently exceeding quota. We will ask you to provide results and proof. We are looking for top performers who can back this up with facts.

A referenceable work history - we will want to speak to some people you have sold through/to and to whom you have reported.

Must be able to work in the US legally.

Must live in the covered Midwest region preferably in the Dallas, Texas or Chicago, Illinois Area. In addition, other covered states in the Midwest Region include Oklahoma, Colorado, Missouri, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota. Located in any other state is not an option.

Must speak, read, and write English at a conversational level.

Master's or Bachelor's degree preferred
