Business Development Manager

Corporate | Columbus, OH | Full Time

Job Description

Are you a Business Development Manager seeking purpose, challenge, and talented colleagues? Would you like to join a growing company?  CESO is a small engineering and architectural firm with large firm project opportunities: shopping centers, fueling and convenience stores, restaurants, urgent care centers and large residential developments, among others. We develop and empower staff to use their gifts to impact the world through service – to our clients, to our families, and to our communities. We subscribe to the mission “finding purpose through serving others,” so if this speaks to you, let’s connect!

As Business Development Manager, you will build our market position by locating, developing, defining, negotiating, and closing business relationships.  Leveraging your technical knowledge to establish credibility with client contacts at multiple levels, you will compel your prospects to action through effective communication about our company and our capabilities and creating a sense of urgency to take action.   You’ll be highly visible in key industry organizations, events and trade shows where you’ll identify trends and gain new leads and contacts.  Within our firm, you will facilitate new projects with departments and managers to ensure effective hand-offs and contract integrations with business operations.

We develop and inspire our employees through training and coaching on and off the job.  At CESO we believe that work should be more rewarding than just a paycheck.  In addition to a comprehensive benefit and compensation program, our work environments are warm inviting spaces to collaborate with your teammates.  CESO is a principle-centered organization, thinking and acting in alignment with strong values of service, integrity and authenticity.  We create memories and friendship through our employee and service events including lunches, birthday celebrations, outings, and community service opportunities.

Our Business Development Managers are former civil engineers or have roots in the engineering and architecture industry.  Self-driven for results, they have excellent interpersonal and relationship-building skills as well as a heart for service. Having analyzed their territories for high value accounts, they create pipelines and strategic account plans, actively network and apply their professional selling skills to negotiate and close opportunities.  If you’re a wiz at solution selling and have a passion for growing new business, this is for you.

If you agree, we look forward to hearing from you! CESO is an EEO employer – M/F/Veterans/Disabled.
