Account representatives – don’t pass up this opportunity for a great new job that combines client management with a consultative sales process for a global industrial distribution company.

Since 1923, we have been committed to always having the right part in stock and always getting it to the customer when they need it.

 

We are currently seeking an experienced Account Manager to help us maintain that commitment as we continue to grow.

 

This is a relationship-based sales role. Build your book of business as you develop an established territory and customer base.

  • Survey market and competitive conditions
  • Complete reports regarding itineraries, expenses, sales calls, leads, and other related matters
  • Monitor customer complaints, follow up on outstanding orders, and mak emergency calls, night calls, and deliveries as required

Excellent verbal and written communication and interpersonal skills, and the ability to establish rapport building solid relationships at all levels of customer organizations are keys to success.
