Position: Administrative Sales Assistant

Department: Laudisi Distribution Group



Laudisi Distribution Group—or LDG, as we call it—is looking to fill a newly-created position. We are the U.S. wholesaler and distributor for Peterson and Savinelli pipes, Cornell & Diehl pipe tobacco, and a raft of other brands related to the world of premium pipe smoking. Presently, our team of two field reps, in-house Supervisor, and Product Specialist have enough administrative, clerical housekeeping, and sales/service-outreach duties to bundle up and give away to a single individual, so long as it’s the right one. Maybe that’s where you come in!


The role:

Overseeing inbound and outbound inventory organized to orders and trunk shows, processing and tracking customer orders, returns, and repairs, exercising our Customer Relationship Management technology (CRM) to turn inactive accounts into prospective accounts, answering front desk calls, emailing past-due notices, monitoring collections, and shipping the occasional sample to a field agent are but a handful of the responsibilities for the person filling this role. It’s multi-faceted and fast-paced (like most jobs here at Laudisi) which means you should never be bored, and you should have many opportunities to demonstrate your best work.

Do you have what it takes to effectively liaise with and provide support to our sales team, and elevate and advance the goals of our company?
