Field sales executives are the head of the sales department that leaves a business to make its sales. Field sales executives function much the same as other sales executives, except that they must work with a different approach, as their employees actually go out into public to make their sales. They must possess great team leadership and intuition into what may cause a customer to make a purchase.
