What does a Showroom Manager do?

Showroom managers have a director-level role overseeing the sales floor of a retail operation, generally one involving cars or other expensive, high-value merchandise. They lead and supervise a team of sales specialists and support staff. They establish department policies, strategies, and sales target numbers and objectives. They play an active role in strategic planning, and help brainstorm and develop innovative and creative marketing strategies to build brand awareness and generate leads and sales. These roles may involve sales quotas and compensation may be structured to be partially reliant on commissions and bonuses.

Showroom managers typically have a bachelor’s degree in a business field, although an equivalent level of relevant professional experience may be acceptable. They should have a strong sales background, including roles with managerial duties. These roles require strong leadership skills and motivational abilities.
