Sales Director - Art & Interior Design 

Sherrington Associates are the proud retained executive search partner for the UK's premier provider of innovative art design and installation solutions for the hospitality and leisure sectors. 

Founded over thirty years ago, the business has grown steadily during that time and is now the go-to artwork provider for some of the most iconic names in both the luxury hotel trade and national pub chain sector, as well as supporting customers in the care homes and cruise ship sectors. Family owned and operating from state of the art premises in the North West, the business works with clients in every corner of the globe, providing bespoke artwork design, sourcing, supply and installation services both directly to the end-user and via specialist interior designers and architects.

Following recent investment in people, equipment, facilities and technology, they are looking to appoint an accomplished Sales Director to develop and execute a new strategy for business development focused on selected key sectors. The company's reputation for exceptional design quality and robust delivery with their customers means the platform for growth is strong and the search has now begun to identify a strategic business development lead to join the business and capitalise on the immense opportunity that lies ahead.

Focused on developing highly profitable new business that compliments the current portfolio of customers, the successful candidate will be part of the senior team of a well-established, highly reputable fine art supply business with ambitions to grow exponentially over the coming years and will play a lead role in shaping growth based on their previous experience in a similar role.

Candidates should demonstrate a successful track record of strategic new business development across multiple parallel markets, as well as the ability to grow the commercial activities of an evolving family business in the art sector. Whilst experience in the art sector is not a prerequisite, experience of working in an interior products business and dealing with customers in similar sectors is essential.

Sherrington Associates are conducting a research based search exercise throughout February and the client will be interviewing during March 2018. Interested applicants should email their current CV and cover letter to:


All applications will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
