Senior Account Manager Opening

Are you proud of being a salesperson because you feel like your products or services help companies grow? If so, that’s how we look at selling as well.  At Summit Media Greenville, we want a Senior Account Manager  that is committed to finding potential customers and helping them grow their business with our advertising products; which include four radio stations, digital media, promotions and events. 
We are looking for a Senior Account Manager with business to business outside sales experience; someone who loves to develop new business as well as grow it.  We want someone who is proud to say, “I’m a salesperson”; someone who loves the thrill of getting a sale, and someone who believes in commission sales because you know you are good at what you do!
We want to make you and our customers successful.  If you are tired of working for a big corporation that moves too slowly and gets in your way of selling, we are the right place for you.  Our entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well.
Major Responsibilities of a Senior Account Manager :
  • Continual prospecting and developing new clients through a relentless drive to generate new business

  • Achieve weekly, monthly and annual sales objectives including sales goals
  • Maintain regular customer contact through efficient time management skills
  • Attend sales meetings, station  and sporting events, and  training programs as required
Skills and Experience:
  • A proven track record of successfully prospecting and developing new business
  • A passion for selling!  If you don’t having a burning desire to be a professional salesperson – this isn’t the right fit for you
  • Understanding of digital/online/social media and new technology
  • An understanding of marketing principles and a creative mind to put together unique ideas for our clients.
  • Proven ability to ask for the business, overcome objections, and the courage to ask again
