About Joshua Longdon:

As a seasoned Vice President with 12 years of sales and operations leadership experience, I have consistently delivered outstanding results, managing regions with full P&L responsibility ranging from $100M to $250M. My expertise includes leading diverse teams in complex multi-matrix organizations, where I directly oversaw 25 professionals. I specialize in selling intricate digital print, promotion, and apparel solutions through e-commerce and various platforms.

Throughout my career, I have excelled in building and nurturing customer relationships, conducting effective client meetings, and setting clear expectations, resulting in a track record of success. My proficiency extends to financial management, ensuring that budgets align with organizational goals and objectives.

In my most recent role as Director of Sales at ODP Business Solutions, I achieved remarkable results, such as increasing AOI by 325 basis points in 2023 and winning a $1.5M program in 2022, which included print, promotion, and 3PL solutions for the largest nutrition retailer in the U.S. My leadership was instrumental in negotiating 75 sales contracts, maintaining a 98% client retention score in 2022, and achieving an average attainment of 104%, driving 12% top-line growth.

I possess strong analytical acumen, as demonstrated by my successful analysis of CPQ pricing, which led to pricing optimization and a margin gain of 200 basis points in 2022. My dedication and performance earned me recognition as the top-performing director for 8 out of 12 months, and I was ranked as the number one director in annual attainment in 2022. I was also honored with the Leadership MVP award for Culture and 100% team plan achievement, presented by the EVP in 2022.

I have a track record of developing and promoting team members, accelerating regional sales performance, creating data-driven KPIs resulting in increased opportunities, and optimizing sales. My experience as a District Sales Manager and National Account Manager at Office Depot | OfficeMax showcases my ability to lead teams, drive cross-sell motions, and foster client relationships that led to exceptional customer service and operational excellence.

Additionally, my background as an Assistant Men's Soccer Coach at Heidelberg University reflects my talent for recruiting, training, and motivating teams to achieve their best on and off the field.
