What to look for when hiring an Account Manager?
When looking to hire a top-performing Account Manager, it’s key to assess a candidate early on in their sales career on three essential traits: Drive, Nature, and Acumen. At Sales Talent Agency, we refer to this as a person’s core ‘DNA’. Top-performing Account Managers excel at communication and nurturing client relationships over building new ones.
Over the past 15+ years, we have placed over 425 Account Managers across North America, Europe, and Australia and have facilitated $23+ million in salaries. For more information on paying your Account Managers, check out our Live Sales Salary Tool.
