We are searching for a Commercial Director to drive forward the studio’s commercial focus and business generating activities across all sectors from architecture to objects and special ventures. You will lead a team of highly intelligent problem solvers across new business and contracts who work tirelessly to ensure we keep making extraordinary projects happen.
The commercial director is the lynchpin between the design leadership, communications, people, finance and operations teams and will provide guidance to Heatherwick Studio on effective commercial decision making; ensuring continued profitability and a strategic balance of projects. They will be a key driver of the entrepreneurial spirit of discovery and be responsible to seek out and bring to life new opportunities for the studio (encompassing commissions, competition strategy, partnerships, and self-generated ventures).
We are not looking for an ego, or someone who has been there and done it, we want someone who reads the room, understands emotions and tailors their approach accordingly.
