About Product Marketing at Sage:
Product Marketing at Sage is all about deeply understanding customers (needs, feelings, outcomes they want to achieve), the market (size, shape, and trends), and competitors (products, tactics, strategy). With input from other teams across Sage, PMMs then use this to design and build ambitious growth plans, compelling and differentiated value propositions, and high-impact go-to-market (GTM) plans. PMMs partner cross-functionally to drive the execution of these GTM plans and achieve our commercial goals. All of this is delivered by a single, global team of highly skilled PMM professionals, who are empowered to give their very best, every day. We are relentless about building on a Human Centred Design (HCD) methodology, and the PMM teams work to a common framework – getting the job done in a consistent and efficient way, maximizing the time they spend with customers, and innovating.
About the role:
The Senior Director, Product Marketing – North America Region reports to the VP of Product Marketing - Regions & Planning (UK based) and is a senior leadership/managing director role that is accountable for the delivery of all PMM jobs and outputs within a region (North America), as measured by the delivery of £650m+ ARR and 10%+ annual growth. You’ll deliver these outcomes through the leadership of the virtual (US & Canada) PMM Squads across the business units.
Sage is rapidly evolving from a product-centric business to a brand-led, customer-centric, digital-first brand, focused on Human-to-Human Marketing so you'll be joining Sage after an impactful rebranding and during a transformative period to help accelerate our transformation. We have a tremendous market opportunity with our cloud solutions and your efforts will directly impact our growth goals. Working with different stakeholders and different parts of the market, you won't be pigeonholed! This role will avail interesting challenges and growth opportunities. You'll be joining a product marketing organization with incredible leadership (Michael Office, Mark Floisand & Cath Keers) and the crispness of its value proposition.
Success in this role:
Measured by the achievement of Region ARR and Growth Targets, as well as the effectiveness of the relationships with both the President of North America, Leadership Teams, and Business Units. To achieve this requires effective leadership skills working within and across a matrix organization, specifically the ability to lead a virtual team of PMM professionals to drive winning outcomes. Of equal importance is the need for strong persuasion, negotiation, and communication skills, which are all critical to developing effective and trusted relationships.
