Who is Hilti?

Within the role there is additional focus on delivering sustainable price increases on at least an annual basis, working closely with the product managers to set prices in the right way at the launch of new products, undertaking pricing optimisations and supporting with fleet and service pricing across the region.

Whilst not the primary focus, you will also support in rolling out commercial excellence topics, such as agreement and overwrite management, business reviews and training of sales.

You will work very closely with key stakeholders, especially in Sweden (local leadership team and product managers) to support local pricing decisions with a clear focus on driving sustainable top-line growth through daily operations.
