The Distribution Account Manager will make outbound calls to product distributors (convenience store, snack food, novelty, etc) and build ongoing sales and brokering relationships to sell products from our manufacturer portfolio. These distributors require products for them to be successful, and our offering does not require them to spend money, so this is NOT a hard sales role and is more of an account management and product brokering position.
This role requires someone with strong phone sales or support background as you will be making several calls and building new relationships every day. Motivated and aggressive people with excellent relationship building skills will be successful. There is an opportunity to continually grow performance bonuses through the development of successful sales and product brokering relationships; the salary upside in this role is well beyond the base salary rate.
