account director, toronto
While attending Ryerson University, I had the privilege of being a student-athlete. I got my degree in Politics and Governance, played on the varsity men’s soccer team and worked as a sales consultant at Rogers Communications. My schedule was packed, I was doing a lot, however, I wasn’t thrilled with some of my results on the pitch and in the classroom. Mid way through I learned an important lesson from my coach and some of the top performers on my team; there’s always more to give so no matter what you do, make sure you leave it better than you found it. I was a little stubborn and it took some time until I began intentionally applying this attitude to things like athletics, academics, and business but eventually, it all came together.
Utilizing this philosophy while working at Rogers made me fall in love with sales. I thoroughly enjoyed working with clients to solve their business related issues, approached all targets with enthusiasm, and relished in the opportunity to work with results oriented individuals.
Upon graduating, I knew starting a career in B2B sales was my next step and I eventually got my first chance at a digital media start up. While the role was attractive and offered a lot of autonomy, I realized it wasn’t for me. I needed more structure and training, so I got in touch with Sales Talent Agency in hopes of finding that perfect entry level role. I was pleasantly surprised when my recruiter offered me an opportunity to interview for an Account Manager role internally. The interview process was challenging and thoughtful, resulting in an incredible candidate experience. STA’s values were clearly communicated by Jamie and Sonya, and they aligned well with mine – at that point, I knew I wanted to join their team.
Today I am an Account Director with Sales Talent Agency and I have the pleasure of leading an incredible team. We work with startups, mid sized, and globally established organizations across multiple industries.Together, we help our clients meet their objectives by providing recruitment solutions that increase their market share and revenue.
For the love of sales!
