Where the Chemistry Happens

The Business Development Manager – Wall Systems – is a consummate sales professional whose influence extends across the new construction value chain, to create pull-through demand for BASF insulated wall systems. At corporate accounts, for example in the Hotel, Health Care, Quick Serve Restaurant and Retail industries, the BDM creates relationships that result in national specification of BASF systems. Utilizing detailed knowledge of Wall Systems products and systems, the BDM is a trusted advisor who influences both architectural specification and building enclosure design, so that BASF systems specified by architects maximize value for BASF, the architect, the building owner and the installation contractor. Acting as the voice of the architectural design community, the BDM actively shapes new product development within Wall Systems, and plays a key role in launching new products to the design community and to national corporate accounts. As appropriate, the BDM works with Architectural Sales Representatives and Territory Sales Managers to take select construction projects from acquisition to specification to final sales, and to facilitate new product introductions.
