National Sales Manager

AgraCity Crop and Nutrition Ltd.

Established in 1998 and based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, AgraCity’s core business is the procurement, production, packaging, sale and distribution of crop inputs (fertilizers, pesticides, inoculants) and other ag-related products to stakeholders in a value-added manner.

AgraCity is the sales, marketing, and distribution partner of Farmers of North America (FNA). With a focus on direct-to-farm crop input supply, AgraCity develops and sources products globally to enhance the production and bottom-line of their farmer clientele.

Recently, AgraCity and Farmers of North America have announced construction of the first of seven fertilizer SuperCenters. Located in Belle Plaine, Saskatchewan, with slated completion in early 2018, over 600 farmers from over 200 Western Canada communities will share in the rewards of owning part of a major fertilizer supply and distribution system. Once complete, Genesis Belle Plaine will boast a 52,000 tonne fertilizer SuperCenter with the ability to distribute three times its capacity at 150,000 tonnes. This will be the largest direct-to-farm facility of its kind in Canada. The design will accommodate urea, phosphate, micro-nutrients, sulphur, and potash, enabling annual supply for farmer investors.

The National Sales Manager is responsible for the recruitment, hiring, training, and leadership of the national sales team. With a mandate to grow the business and further penetrate the market, the National Sales Manager leads a geographically dispersed direct sales force, ensuring both individual and group sales goals are achieved. With a focus on disciplined sales processes and training, the National Sales Manager will continue to drive a path of success through collaboration and teamwork.

As a candidate for this role, you will ideally have post-secondary education in either agriculture or business, combined with three or more years of experience managing a sales team. Your breadth of agricultural knowledge and leadership experience are enhanced by your overarching focus on improving the profitability and production of farmers. Your demonstrated ability to lead, coach and motivate a high-performance sales team rounds out your experience.

Foundationally, AgraCity believes that they are only as strong as the combined talents of their people—harness this exciting opportunity and become a part of this continued growth story.
