What is a Sales Executive?

Sells products or services

A Sales Executive is a sales person working in the Business to Business market with responsibility to sell a specific product line or service. The role will require them to understand their employer’s product or solution.

Retains and grows accounts

They may be responsible for retaining and growing a number of customer accounts, managing day-today requirements or they may undertake the role of a sales consultant, by contacting prospective customers, responding to enquiries, qualifying opportunities and managing the sales process to a mutually acceptable close.

Consults with their customers

A Sales Executive is able to conduct a customer needs analysis for simple solutions by linking features and benefits to customer requirements they can assemble straightforward solutions. A Sales Executive would be expected to develop customer relationships by establishing rapport and building trust and confidence in their own and their company’s capabilities through demonstration of product knowledge.
