JOSHUA MANDELL grew up in the business world. He comes from a long line of successful business executives. His grandfather, father, uncles, and brothers have all been successful in their chosen fields. Joshua is no different. Since the age of 18, he has been earning promotion after promotion. Throughout his career, he mastered various positions and has now become a top producing sales manager.
Joshua now builds profitability by design, listening to client needs, assessing ways to work together and growing business on both sides. He leads internal teams to enhance profits and identifies ways to lower expenses. As a trusted advisor to his clients, Joshua focuses on the needs of his customers. He quickly assesses return on investment (ROI) and offers opportunities to clients that benefit the development of his company’s sales revenue.
Joshua is a likeable, entrepreneur-minded sales manager who strengthens relationships with his clients, by helping them build their businesses. He has an innate ability to listen to their requirements and translate those needs into sales that grow his business.
Advancing sales for his employers, Joshua increases the frequency of sales calls in a territory to establish strong ties with his clients as a way to amplify sales revenue for the regions he manages. In 2002, as Territory Manager for one of the leaders in the industry, Joshua exceeded sales objectives and delivered $150 thousand in sales revenue each month. Achieving sales revenue over $1.9 million, Joshua was responsible for growing the territory more than 33% in fewer than three years. For this, he was recognized as one of the top ten sales associates across North America and was awarded the President’s Club award for outstanding sales achievements for two years running.
Later in his career, as National Sales Manager, he generated sales leads that produced more than $300 thousand in annual sales and created over 30 key accounts including top independent retailers in Ontario earning anywhere from $25 thousand to $150 thousand per month in sales revenue. Joshua supports his clients and grows their business while he improves profits for his employers. Keeping his clients fully satisfied, keeps them coming back to him for product and services.
While honing his sales talents, Joshua developed a keen and creative eye for fashion. In his spare time, Joshua earned himself a spot at the reputable Ontario College of Art and Design where he worked towards his Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1999. Passionate about graphic design he learned about the fundamental design and marketing principles used in sales and later used this knowledge to promote his custom Canadian-made products. In 2003, he pursued his Bachelor of Arts, completing course work in accounting, advertising, and business management.
Taking into account all he learned during his studies, in 2009, Joshua ventured out on his own and created Autumn Hill Upholstery, a high-end custom Canadian upholstery retailer. Within twelve months, he generated over $300 thousand in sales and reached his breakeven shortly after. An entrepreneur at heart, Joshua’s focus on customer requirements and relationship building ensure his success in creating profitability by design.
