Account Manager – Sterling Heights, MI – 3266


Outside Sales
Posted 7 months ago

I’m working with a large wire and cable distributor just outside of Detroit to help them hire an experienced Account Manager. There is a book of business already in place as well as a significant backlog and tons of room for growth! Territory is mostly Michigan and trickles into Indiana and Pennsylvania selling to just about anyone who can use wire & cable ranging from low voltage to utility grade. This is a true account management role where you will own the entire relationship cradle to grave.  75% of your time will be spent in the field in front of customers with the balance supporting those efforts i.e. quotes, following up on POs, verifying delivery, prospecting for new clients and setting up appointments, as well as reaching out to current customers to elicit sales, and the like. They offer a great comp and benefits program with a very lucrative monthly commission plan. For more information contact me at or 847-307-7126.
