Job Description for Key Account Manager

The main role of a key account manager is to establish and maintain the relationship between the company and its clients. A good key account manager works on combining what the client needs and requires with any strategic plans a company may have. Key account managers make the client a priority and give them the quality service an appreciative company must provide. Another duty of the key account manager may be to contract new agreements or conduct any negotiations between the company and the client. The key account manager must always be thinking about what the client may need next, and they must create business plans that have the ability to bring in profit for both.

Client satisfaction is the most important responsibility the key account manager will have. They have meetings with their clients, follow up with them, make phone calls and maintain good lines of communication. Key account managers may also be required to market and promote services to draw in new clients. A key account manager balance the needs of all of their clients, provide all the necessities, and do all that is possible to increase revenue for the company and all their clients.
