Copier Careers® Publishes 2014 Sales Manager Salary Survey Results3 Jul, 2014
Minneapolis, MN, July 1, 2014 - Copier Careers® , a Minneapolis based niche recruiting firm serving the Document Imaging Industry for almost 30 years, just published their twelfth annual Sales Management Salary Survey.
This year’s survey reflects the responses of 1,069 copier channel sales managers who participated in our online survey over the past year. The survey provides insight into a variety of factors, including how well managers are being compensated, how well their employers are meeting their needs, and whether they’re satisfied in their current positions.
Highlights from this year’s sales manager salary survey include:
- Average base pay and compensation are up. Over the past year, total compensation for sales managers has risen by 4.4 percent, with a $5,000 increase in commission alone.
- Female sales managers are growing in numbers. Women now account for more than 30 percent of copier channel sales managers, compared to less than 10 percent a decade ago.
- The selling sales manager position has made a comeback. Thanks in part to MPS and MNS, the selling sales manager has become one of the fastest growing positions in our industry.
- Sales managers are embracing tech. As sales managers have come to realize the sales potential of solutions, enthusiasm for emerging technology has risen rapidly.
