Your role

An exceptional opportunity to join a world-class Leadership team at a global technology innovator. Flixmedia’s Global Retail Director will be a leader, not a manager.  Traveling the globe, the single most important goal is to ensure Flixmedia continues to develop deep, connected relationships, at the highest level, with the top global retailers.
