San Francisco Art Exchange LLC Gallery
If you love music, film, sports, and the important historical figures of the last century, and enjoy writing about and discussing them and the impact they've had on us and our culture, then please read on!

You would be working in an exciting and friendly atmosphere with a positive sales team and support staff. We meet face-to-face with clientele from all over the world. San Francisco draws some of the most motivated, creative, and successful people to our doorstep so there are always new opportunities to share what we do with collectors around the world.

We host events and artist-attended exhibition openings several times a year and we are a regular destination for touring performers and personalities. We often coordinate in-house or satellite exhibitions with producers of major events such as Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival, Coachella/Desert Trip and others.

The Sales Director will be responsible for managing the sales staff and overseeing daily sales-related activities while maintaining personal and gallery sales goals. You will report directly to the Co-Founders/Executive Directors of the gallery.

This position has been handled heretofore by one of the Co-Founders. Rapidly expanding opportunities for the company now demand we bring on a Gallery Director to allow the partners more freedom to pursue new areas of growth for the company.

  • You are a natural leader, teacher, and role-model. You like people and enjoy developing new relationships as a natural personality trait. Your enthusiasm is infectious. 
  • You are comfortable in the arena of high-end sales and have yearned for a better fit for your long-term career and interests; an exciting life-path with plenty of opportunity for growth and financial reward.
  • You have had demonstrable sales experience with high-dollar transactions with direct negotiation. It is not necessarily important what industry or market space you come from, for us, effective people-skills are paramount.
  • You are a mature professional and have personal confidence in making one-on-one presentations in person and by telephone. You understand the value of purposeful communication so your emails, texts, and letters are articulate, compelling and persuasive, and you communicate with respect and authority.
  • You are a creative thinker and a problem-solver and are tireless and organized with your approach to finding new opportunities. You are driven to meet challenges rather than be defeated or deterred.
  • You have a desire to learn and you can take experienced direction. You listen well and thoughtfully and you can integrate new information and skills seamlessly. You readily accept critique and guidance for the sake of improving your performance.
  • You embrace technology and have at least some expertise with computers and mobile devices. We are on Apple OS/iOS and we regularly use Salesforce CRM, Square POS, Gmail, social media platforms, and other web-based applications so basic skills and a willingness to learn are expected.

You will receive a guaranteed base salary plus bonuses based on gallery sales. For the right person this will result in total annual remuneration at $100k and above.
