VP Sales job description

Before hiring a VP Sales, the CEO will typically have been both the sales lead and the best sales person. It is a big step to hand the responsibility for your customers over to someone new, but if you are looking to scale the business, there is no other choice. There are sales people out there better than you: you just need to find and convert them.

It should be what you supply your recruiter with to make sure they are on the same page as you in terms of your requirements. It can also serve as a guide when creating the final role profile for your business.
