Title:  Trade Strategy Manager - Remote


Do you have a knack for understanding the key drivers of trade promotion effectiveness and efficiency? Advance your career as a Trade Strategy Manager. Trade promotion is typically the second largest line item for most Consumer Package Goods companies and as a global leader, we know how important it is to have our finger on the pulse. We are looking for top talent in the Battle Creek, MI or Chicago, IL areas but open to individuals in other remote US locations. In this role you will support the optimization of category, customer, and brand trade investment strategies through the delivery of analysis, insights, and recommendations. 


At Kellogg we are passionate about our people, brands, business, and outstanding food.  The Trade Strategy Team is a fun, energetic team where you have exposure to all levels of the company and will have the opportunity to maximize your potential. Are you ready to leave your footprint (Or as Tony would say paw print) with an industry leader? Apply now to become a part of a best-in-class company that values equity, diversity, and inclusion.




  • Trade Execution - Driving and championing the ongoing development and execution of trade architecture and promotion strategy is an important aspect of your responsibilities.  You will strive to ensure compliance to pricing architecture across all accounts. 
  • Account Support – You will work to maintain sustainable and effective investment deployment methodologies for key accounts. Through your thought leadership and business partnering you will work to improve under-performing key accounts. We look to you to drive speed, flexibility, and collaboration.
  • Business Analytics – Your analytical mindset will serve you well as you utilize Trade Promotion Management (TPM) software, Nielsen, SAP and other syndicated data.  Conducting pre and post analysis of specific trade events/activities at brand and account level will be key to your success.
  • Internal Collaboration – Working with internal partners you will influence and coordinate the efforts of various groups to maximize the return of Kellogg’s Investment.   We are looking to you to demonstrate courageous leadership across Commercial Strategy, Sales, Revenue Growth Management, Sales Finance, and Business Unit Finance.




  • Strong understanding of the selling process and the route to market across multiple channels.
  • Solid working knowledge of Profit & Loss statements and drivers of profitable growth
  • Proven strong analytical skills and business analysis experience.
  • Advanced computer skills including expert level proficiency in Excel (e.g., Pivot Tables & V-Lookups) and PowerPoint.
  • Ability to retrieve, merge, understand and interpret data from numerous sources (e.g., Nielsen, Eversight, SAP, etc.).
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills required to influence key stakeholders.
