I am an Account Manager focused on sales in the western part of the USA.
What do you enjoy most about working in sales?
I am a competitive person by nature, so working in sales is a perfect fit for me; you should see me play ping pong! I enjoy learning about my product portfolio and target consumer groups, as well as developing one-of-a-kind solutions to meet their needs. I like offering a product or service that will change how my clients conduct business and one which will enhance their business and generate increased revenue for them.
