The Role

You'll do this by...

  • Partnering with internal Specialists in order to drive additional value and expertise
  • Building a point of view on how to help your clients
  • Generating pipeline that leads to closed revenue and quota attainment
  • Accurately forecasting
  • Selling on value and ROI vs. technical functionality
