Q: Can you describe what you do on a day-to-day basis?
A: I usually start my morning with a big cup of joe and a review of my calendar and emails. Since I have accounts with a national presence, I’ll start making and receiving calls shortly afterwards. Then, I follow up on opportunities with current and target customers. I’m always prospecting, and this helps fill my calendar with calls and appointments up to four weeks out.
Q: How did you become an Enterprise Account Executive? What attracted you to this job?
A: I’ve been in sales since I was seven years old—I sold Campfire Girl candy and won a free week at camp. Since that time, I’ve been very successful in enterprise sales as a rep, Sales Manager, and Director of Sales—which eventually led me to Connection. Over the course of time, I’ve built a fairly nice portfolio of accounts—some I’ve been managing now for 17 years!
Q: Any advice for newcomers?
A: Working for Connection is like having your own business. The effort you put in will impact your success.
Q: What would you be doing if you weren’t an Enterprise Account Executive?
A: I’d be retired—or a chef. I love to cook.
Q: What’s the best part about working at Connection?
A: We are all one big, happy family. I’ve created wonderful relationships with my peers as well as my customers.
