Cella is regarded as the premier marketing, creative & digital workforce solutions firm in the U.S. In this role, you will lead by example in addition to managing a personal desk. You are responsible for inspiring a high-performance consultative sales team within your market to reach ambitious goals while identifying opportunities for growth and development for your team members. Cella's MSM’s are an integral part of our business as they assist in setting and achieving goals.

Who WE are:

We are passionate about helping people build meaningful careers and partnering with organizations to help them win. Cella is an award-winning leader in consulting, staffing and managed solutions for creative, marketing, digital and proposal development teams. Our secret sauce? The Cella Trifecta: we have the right people, we understand our clients and we deliver results. Together, we put passion to work.


We’re the only creative staffing firm to win the Best of Staffing® Client and Talent Awards for 10 years running.


We are teams built of thought leaders, collaborators, creators, and innovators. We work hard. We have fun. And, we do it all together. We are a community of people working together towards common goals and dreams- we celebrate our successes: our WINS, both big and small, and we unite under pressure to make the magic happen.

Who YOU are:

You are a tenacious and collaborative Sales leadership professional, seeking to build and strengthen relationships with clients and key contacts, ensuring that the individual needs of the client are met. You have experience developing a market strategy for your team that aligns with annual goals and take a proactive role in identifying areas where your team may be struggling. You create and implement growth and development plans for sales team members and conduct monthly performance reviews.


You are a HUNTER and a NURTURER, guaranteeing the ability to maintain the needs of your existing clients, all while pursuing and establishing new relationships. You are comfortable relying on your team as they are reliant upon you. You are excited to become an expert in your assigned market within your territory while growing and mentoring your team.


A few key responsibilities:

Market Sales Operations

  • In partnership with their Regional Director, develop a market sales strategy for their team that aligns to annual goals.
  • With their Regional Director and their sales team, develop account based strategies for developing new and expanding existing clients within their assigned territories.
  • Embrace Cella’s overall sales architecture that promotes the pursuit of Consulting, Staffing and Managed Services opportunities
  • Take an active role in the regional daily orders meetings and facilitate an efficient and succinct sprint meeting to review and assign support against open orders, and set the daily priorities for their sales team.
  • Conduct individual performance appraisals of team members and take needed action regarding their progress/results. 

Sales Staff Development

  • The MSM is responsible for the on-going professional development of their assigned team.
  • Conducts and/or delegates weekly training, or Lunch & Learns with their teams regarding sales best practices, strategy sessions, consultative sales techniques, Cella proprietary offerings, Cella Marketing campaigns and/or events, operational standards and industry trends.
  • Holds monthly performance reviews with their teams regarding opportunity pipelines, placement results, performance against goals and performance against standard KPI’s.

Personal Sales Production

  • Lead by example by enforcing operational best practices (OBPs), maintain Cella’s core values, and foster a positive culture.
  • The role of the MSM is to predominantly lead successful teams and gain the fullest level of utilization, results and quality from the teams they are entrusted to lead.
  • The role requires a “whatever is needed” mindset that will require the MSM to take an active role in selling within their market. It is expected that the MSM will manage a smaller number of clients (active and under development) than their staff with a special emphasis on significantly critical clients, or those with lengthy development timelines in order to absolve their staff for excessive time waste.
