POSITION TITLE:

GENERAL MANAGER

JOB CATEGORY:

Senior Management

INDUSTRY:

Transportation: Air/Ocean

LOCATION:

Montreal, QC

DATE:

September 25, 2018

JOB ORDER NUMBER:

201009

THE COMPANY:

A staple of the Canadian landscape, this large, progressive, and highly successful transportation powerhouse provides vast opportunity for a dedicated, talented and motivated logistics professional to expand their horizons, bring about change and have far-reaching influence. Boasting a reputation as one of Canada’s best-managed companies, this organization prides itself on staying at the forefront of the industry and being adaptive to business trends. Their corporate philosophy is to ensure the ULTIMATE customer experience and facilitate the creation of new, sustainable business through enhanced team cooperation and employee engagement. A corporate entity that highly values their people, their customers and their suppliers, truly a real joy to work for and a company you will be proud to represent. 

THE OPPORTUNITY:

Taking the mantle of leadership for this large, efficient and effective team of dedicated transportation professionals in Montreal, you are well positioned to make an immediate and influential impact on the organization as a whole. Obviously operational expertise is essential but of paramount importance are the strong leadership qualities required to foster a positive working environment, leading to high employee engagement and satisfaction. Not to be overshadowed is the ability to perform well in front of the client; in a senior management role such as this, client-facing activities are a big part of the job and a certain amount of sales acumen is required! This role, being domiciled in Montreal, will obviously lend itself to someone who is fluently bilingual in both French and English; however, we are willing to entertain masterful communicators in English for whom improving their French is of personal interest! I look forward to providing more “color” to this role in finer detail with all qualified and interested parties.

EMPLOYMENT TYPE:

Full-Time, Permanent

COMPENSATION:

Comprehensive and competitive compensation plan, commensurate with experience including base, bonus eligibility and benefits.

EDUCATION:

  • University degree in logistics or business management would be considered an asset
  • Post graduate education an asset
  • CCLP, CIFFA, CITT, P.Log, or other transportation/logistics certification is an asset

REQUIRED TRAVEL:
