You will work closely with the Sales Manager and his team to represent our brands Ferrari and Maserati and generate sales in the manner that suits these brands. You will create individual budgets and objectives and you will be responsible for your team achieving them. That is why effective (marketing) plans are required, which you will draw up and implement with the Marketing Manager.
In addition to perfectly presenting the cars in the showroom, our digital showroom (see: website) must also be properly maintained. We are seeking maximum lead generation results, which is why our online presence must be highly effective.
The After-sales department of Munsterhuis Sportscars is made up of an After-Sales Manager, a Service Manager, a Parts Manager and a team of 6 mechanics. This allows us to service our customers' cars in a professional way.

You will work closely with the After-Sales Manager to carry out our tasks and service activities to the highest level, with the important aim of providing an optimum level of customer service. It goes without saying that working efficiently with a focus on return is a prerequisite which you will always make an important contribution to.

The Parts Manager must ensure optimum stock management, so we can achieve the highest possible service level when it comes to our own workshop and our customers. As General Manager, you will be responsible for the strategy, sales and marketing activities to increase parts sales.
Marketing is an important pillar for each department. The marketing of the brands Ferrari and Maserati is predominantly made up of events where you introduce our customers and prospects to our stunning products and services in a way that befits Munsterhuis. Alongside the events that are initiated by the factory, Munsterhuis Sportscars must also organise plenty of local events so we can achieve and maintain contact with our customers.
Our activities must be processed in our CRM (Modis) system.

You will periodically carry out performance reviews which closely monitor and guide the performance of each employee.
You will be able to praise your colleagues when they perform well and if necessary, guide them if they under-perform.
