Who we are:
Steelcase was founded as an office furniture maker, and we've evolved into the international leader in workplace solutions. We apply our insights to the intersection of space, technology, and furniture, helping individuals and teams in leading companies around the world to be more successful at work.

We pursue innovation, strive for sustainability and develop insights in every part of our business.

What you will be doing:

Working with our dealer leadership, you ll be facilitating showroom consulting engagements to gain insight from their workplace needs through a series of Workplace Tools + Resources. The engagement process gives exposure to the dealer s team and builds confidence, helping them to understand how these tools can be used as a differentiator with their customers. The results will be a showroom floor plan and an experience guide addressing their specific needs that can be shared with customers.

You ll be co-leading the Design Leader Advisory Council, building connections with them as they generate content to share with the Design Leader Community of Practice. You ll also plan a yearly Dealer Designer Day event, typically hosted in Grand Rapids, where members attend breakout sessions and learn from content experts best practices regarding a variety of topics identified by you and the Advisory Council.

In addition, you will facilitate a monthly one-hour webinar called Thursdays with Cate for dealer designers, focusing primarily on Steelcase extension of CET called SmartTools. The session will demo new products within the tool and highlight important updates from Steelcase.

Finally, you ll support the showroom portion of the Co-Marketing program that provides incentives to our dealers for completing specific requirements.

Who you are:

You are excited to be the advocate for the dealer designer community. You ll cherish lifelong relationships with them. You ll look for ways to support them regarding proficiency in design software, designer product and application training, and alignment with internal product marketing and launch teams.

Your Future Team:

The Channel team is viewed as a valuable resource working to bridge the gap between our dealers and internal groups at Steelcase. Our team has experienced professionals with varying backgrounds who are known for their expertise, thought leadership, ability to deliver results through leading, and have future opportunities within the company. As part of the Channel Development team, you ll be viewed as a thought leader, a representative for our dealer designers within Steelcase, and will have a unique opportunity to develop lifelong relationships with our dealer design leaders.
