JOB DESCRIPTIONAPPLY **DIRECT HIRE ONLY** WE WILL NOT RESPOND TO AGENCIES.**
The BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR position offers a tremendous opportunity for the right candidate to play a key role in the achievement of the company growth plan. The chosen candidate will be responsible for ensuring that Revenew International effectively seeks out and develops new strategic business relationships for its core contingency services. The position will involve business and relationship development that drives revenue attainment. Consistent with the company's values, financial performance, not just hard work, is how this position is rewarded.
The Business Development position reports to the Vice President of Business Development (BD). In addition to reporting to the VP of BD, the chosen candidate will work very closely with the C.O.O. of the company in driving client relationship development, customer service and revenue attainment.
The position will require a deep Rolodex of proven relationships in the industry sector that each candidate specializes in to be successful. These relationships should primarily be with companies that have revenue levels in excess of $3 billion. While relationships at any functional executive level will be beneficial, the key relationship points for the services Revenew provides are within the ranks of Supply Chain leadership, Procurement Officer, CFO and Controller roles, and Internal Audit.
The company is seeking to capitalize on its impressive list of client testimonials and long term relationships in the Utility and Energy Industries to help fuel expansion of its core services into other industry markets.
The Business Development role offers an incredible opportunity to make an exceptional income. There will be a starting salary level that will allow for a suitable on-boarding period and initial client revenue attainment during the first 12 months.

Typically, when a major client is landed, there will be recurring revenue for that client on an ongoing basis, if the account is managed properly. The Business Development Executive will achieve the same percentage commission on revenue from that client as long as the relationship exists, with no limits. Current Business Development Executives at Revenew, who serve different industry sectors, have achieved exceptional pay levels in a short period of time. It is expected that the successful Business Development Executive can earn in excess of $500,000/year with unlimited earnings potential.
