Vacancy: Commercial Strategy Manager

The Commercial Strategy Manager will work with and support Neways’ CCO, and mainly focus on commerce. They will deliver change, and drive the implementation of its strategic plans and initiatives. This role will report directly to CCO Michiel van der Maat, a seasoned C-level executive, and their primary work will take place in Eindhoven.

“The Commercial Strategy Manager is a new position within Neways where they can help define solutions they identify. It is an ideal fit for a consultant who enjoys a challenge, has the energy to get an organization moving, and thrives on the excitement of not knowing what next month will bring.” – Michiel van der Maat, CCO of Neways 

The main focus of the Commercial Strategy Manager will be to solve problems with no clear-cut answers. This requires an analytical, creative, and structured approach, as well as the communication and leadership skills to drive change. Their varied responsibilities include developing the commercial strategy, supporting account teams on pricing, account and sector planning, crafting a new business development approach, and analyzing and developing new client service models. Through their efforts, the Commercial Strategy Manager can take Neways to the next level.

Collaboration is also a vital for this role. To maximize impact, the Commercial Strategy Manager will collaborate with colleagues from all parts of the organization. They will support the leadership of operating companies and their teams to implement the strategy and execute initiatives, which requires periodic site visits. They will also frequently interact with Finance to gather financial data as input for their analyses. As well as being a trusted advisor to the CCO, this role will liaise with the other members of Neways’ Executive Board and Infestos, too.

Due to the recent ownership change, this is an ideal time to join Neways. The company is poised for growth investments, and professionalization. And this allows the Commercial Strategy Manager to make a significant business impact. Additionally, it’s a perfect opportunity to be well-positioned to join their line management team.
