My current immediate boss was recently promoted to VP of Sales. He became in charge of all sales departments (4 in the US 1 overseas) company-wide. Each department of course has a Director of Sales, Director of Operations, and Managers running the sales floor. Directly under him is the VP of Operations. I currently manage the salesforce overseas. The company is growing fast, always has been since I arrived. I am as usual on the pursuit of being promoted again. I have been thinking of ways to approach him with a proposition. Of course the next promotion for me as stated by him would be Director of Sales, which I am shooting for. However lately, talking to him I have noticed the overwhelming work he has to do and everything that goes with running all sales departments. I recently thought that I could approach him with a position below him as some kind of assistant vp of sales or something where I can help run the sales departments. Does this sound way out of line? I feel like there is something there but I cannot put my finger on it. I know I can sit and brain storm and figure it out which I will do, but I was hoping to get some advice or tips on what positions I can approach him with. Any tips advice would be greatly appreciated.
