Strategic Business Developer- Key Account Manager (BASED REMOTELY)

Our multi-national client is well respected around the world for their products, technologies and financial strength and stability. They have a unique culture having an extremely employee friendly environment. Once selected to become part of the team, people simply don't leave or if they do, often times will try to get back in the "family". Not to be thought of employee friendly at the expense of winning in the market place, our client is incredibly successful not in spite of their employee loyalty but because of the way they value their employees.

Our client recently created a new team to focus on their largest and most strategic customers. Previous to creating this team, our client believed they were not taking full advantage of opportunities within large and potentially lucrative accounts. Since the creation of the Strategic Accounts team, our client has been incredibly successful in growing business within these critical accounts.

Their success has led to an opportunity to add to their team. The Key Account Manager will assume responsibility for two to three new strategic customers and will develop these customers into significant revenue generating accounts. It is critical that the Key Account Manager knows how to develop deep and wide relationships with large complex enterprises so they are able to creatively and collaboratively identify opportunities to grow sales within the accounts for which they are responsible. The Key Account Manager will know how to identify opportunities and work with Product Management and Research & Development to create product roadmaps to serve the customer's needs in the short and long term. This is a strategic and tactical role and the Key Account Manager will enjoy the challenge of nurturing and growing business with large, complex enterprises.
