On behalf of our client, we are on the hunt for an account executive working out of Denmark.

The Account Executive is the most crucial role regarding our sales pipeline.

Account Executive has the capabilities and know-how of versatile account development, where understanding of client’s business requirements is a vital factor when driving success. Account Executive is a fluent influencer within the relevant functions of our customer’s organizations, with well-structured ways of leading the sales funnel.

  • Customer interaction includes all types of sales and account management methods, i.e. cold and warm sales calls, contacting in written format (email, InMail etc.), taking part in customer events, etc.
  • AE is responsible for independently being up to date with relevant information regarding own clients, e.g. new positions filled by the customer, business m&a’s or new product lines
  • AE reports to sales lead according to the agreed frequency and format
  • AE is responsible for making sure our CRM is up to date and that all relevant information is being filled in
  • AE exchanges information efficiently within our organizations

    • People skills
    • Skills in written and oral communication as well as in negotiation
    • Presentation skills
    • Social selling

    • Ability to use different communication channels and technologies efficiently

  • Over 5 years of relevant and successful sales experience (strategic solution or SaaS selling, preferably with high annual recurring revenue deals size)
  • Understanding of FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) business from the brand or vendor perspective. Prior involvement in Trade Promotion operations is a big plus.
  • Result-oriented, but patient – our sales cycles are several months
  • Perceptive and analytical – can draw a holistic picture from several details

  • Meeting personal sales quota
  • Keeping up a dynamic sales pipeline that is easy to communicate
