Country Manager Slovakia


The mission: setting up branch and developing MarkIT brand and business in Slovakia
The vision: building a profitable branch with 6-8 people to deliver high quality services in IT procurement area

Markit was born with one and only purpose – to change how IT procurement works once and for all. To unite all purchases and simplify the processes. So Markit developed a system – online procurement market place where purchaser can meet all local IT distributors and simply buy whatever they want from whoever they want.
This system (as well as Markit) is well establish in 28 european countries, annual turnover of the group is 80 mio EUR and has 22% growth every year. Markit services use global customers such as Deloitte, ABB, Michelin, Johnson &Johnson, Western Union, Michelin and others. Currently Slovakia is managed from Czech Republic (local team of 6 people) but the time for a local branch has come.
I am looking for a person no.1. in Slovakia.  A leader, salesman and manager. Someone who is determined to get this party started. You get tools, investments, support and you will be expected to deliver sales results, opportunities and happy customers. One year you will play solo. After that you start hiring team – sales and support people – and you become manager and leader. That’s why I look for a strong sales guy as well as a strong people manager.
