Job Description for National Account Executive

A national account executive identifies sales opportunities throughout the country and helps achieve sales goals. Much of the communication with prospective clients will be done over the phone, but some travel throughout the country is usually required. The account executive will identify trends in the market and do research in order to obtain new accounts. Extensive knowledge of the competition is also important in order to develop new sales methods and offer products that the client needs. There may be minimum sales targets that need to be achieved.
