What to look for when hiring a Sales Executive
When looking to hire a rockstar Sales Executive at the VP or EVP level, it is important to look at a salesperson’s performance history, career relevancy, and opportunity management– something Sales Talent Agency refers to as DNA/PRO™.
Sales Executives are Account Executives at the Sr. or leadership level. It is important to find someone with a strong history of individual contribution who is looking to progress their career into or within the senior level, while looking for someone who is a strategist that can guide your company’s sales efforts. Base salaries can vary, but they are typically at the $90,000-$260,000 range depending on the organization.
Over the last 14+ years, Sales Talent Agency has placed more than 150 Sales Executives at the EVP or VP level across North America, Europe and Australia.
