What is the role of an Account Manager?


An Account Manager is typically a role in the early stages of a sales career. Acting as the liaison between the client and the sales team, the Account Manager oversees and manages relationships with pre-existing client accounts over building new ones. Base salaries in this position range from $35,000-85,000. The logical progression of an Account Manager is to a Sr. Account Manager or Key Account Manager (KAM) before taking on positions such as an Account Executive or managerial type role.

In the past 2 years, Sales Talent Agency has placed over 70 Account Managers across 45+ North American companies including Cintas, Freshbooks, Rogers, Waste Management and Foodora. We've facilitated more than $4+ million in salaries, an amount that continues to grow.
