Our counterparts in Australia recently published the following job posting for the role of General Manager, La Marzocco Australasia. We thought we’d re-post it here.
If you’re interested in applying for this opportunity, please email a cover letter and CV to Guido Bernardinelli, Managing Director of La Marzocco Srl. Good luck!
La Marzocco is a highly successful Italian espresso machine brand with a reputation for creating superior espresso with beauty, functionality and robust performance. Handmade in Florence, these machines are crafted in the finest Italian tradition and are found in many of the world’s leading espresso bars, cafes and restaurants.
We are excited to announce the new position of General Manager La Marzocco Australasia. This opportunity has arisen as a result of La Marzocco seeking to further develop the brand in Australia and New Zealand and a new company has been created for this purpose – La Marzocco Australasia Ltd.
Reporting to the Board, the role of the General Manager is to lead and develop a team of highly capable sales, technical and customer service staff throughout Australasia and to drive sales growth. Building a high-performing culture, which is fully aligned with La Marzocco’s vision and values, is a critical part of this role. This role would ideally be based in Melbourne.
Our ideal candidate will have a solid history in the specialty coffee and espresso industry. They will be able to successfully demonstrate their ability to build effective long-term customer relationships and show sound strategic and commercial analysis and thinking. This role has full accountability for the operations and financial performance of the company.
While the role is of general management in nature, there is more emphasis on sales and marketing. Understanding the value and positioning of a prestigious brand in the Australasian market is a useful perspective.
