Livingston James retained by Stewart-Buchanan Gauges to appoint Sales Director

An employee-owned business, Stewart-Buchanan Gauges (SBG) has the enviable reputation as a manufacturer of market-leading, technically advanced products.

Their mission is to recognise and exceed customer expectations whilst also building a strong ownership culture that creates sustainable employment and the opportunity for each employee to contribute and succeed. As a company, SBG likes to stay one step ahead and their strong commitment to innovation has enabled them to grow in highly competitive markets both across Europe and around the world.


SBG is looking to appoint a new Sales Director who will develop, embed and deliver a new sales strategy to deliver significant growth over a sustainable period of time. Focused on identifying routes to new markets, the diversification of customer portfolios and the extension of products/services in response to the external environment and evolving demand, the successful candidate will also ensure that SBG always exceeds customer expectations.

The Sales Director will initially be tasked with undertaking a comprehensive review of all sales activities, across both the external and internal sales teams, assessing current capability and existing processes before making necessary recommendations and implementing changes / best practice as appropriate.

With relevant sales leadership experience gained within a manufacturing or engineering services business focused on delivering the highest levels of customer service, the successful candidate will be an inspirational leader able to lead from the front and carry a team forward. A strategic thinker able to evaluate the market and business climate, recognise opportunities as the market shifts and make decisions with vision, you will be empathetic and focused on ensuring SBG continues to be an open and empowering workplace by encouraging employee participation.

The role demands a commercially minded operator and perhaps most importantly someone who buys into the overall ethos of SBG.
