The Company

The Role of Sales Executive

For example, you may decide to target Samsung's global offices and would be able to leverage a conversation off the fact that Apple are already a client who benefits from the market insight your company provides. 

You would taught to be in control of the full sales process form initial lead through to closing the deal and managing the client.

You will also get to attend international client meetings up to 2 weeks every quarter!
