JOB DESCRIPTION / ROLE
Charterhouse is working with a global Asset Management Firm based in the DIFC, and they are searching for a Commercial Director to lead their Dubai sales team. The main responsibility is to grow their UAE client base and develop their digital platform. The Commercial Director will manage the business development team in order to obtain new clients and investment from the region.
The role will oversee the growth and development of our client’s brand in the UAE through improving sales, marketing and customer service processes. Our client will be offering a number of wealth management and investment opportunities through their Mobile App and website, so the Commercial Director will be required to coordinate successful marketing and sales campaigns to optimise the exposure of the app when it comes to launch.
The nature of the role also demands a strong understanding of financial products so that you can improve the range of products and services that will be offered through our client’s app. Our client’s goal is to develop a top ranked digital investment solution on the market, so a key component for the Commercial Director role will be striving to achieve that ambition.
The successful candidate should also have a large portfolio of clients and have the ability to utilise their existing network of Mass Affluent and HNI clients in order to attract investment and increase the revenue of the company.
The client will look to hire someone who has a strong network in the region through previous work experience in digital banking, investment advisory or wealth management. They want someone who has a track record of managing a portfolio of HNI clients, and someone who can manage a team and develop the sales and marketing of digital products and services.
You should have a minimum of 5 years of work experience in the Finance and Investment industry in the UAE, and have an extreme entrepreneurial mindset that will help grow the business through innovation.
