As I'm growing my business, a lot of people tell me that I should hire a director of business development, but I'm not sure what I should be looking for.
It is a bit difficult to answer without having the entire picture, but I will try my best.
If you are growing, then yes, you should definitely hire a business developer (biz dev), that can grow into a biz dev Director.
Generally, they tend to be sociable and driven by success.
I would look for a person that has a point to prove, they are difficult to manage but their drive is second to none.
Hope this helps
