Account Executive in the Virtual Studio (promoted from Client Care Specialist) at Design Within Reach
November 2016 - promoted in May 2018 - present
This position on the sales team in the Virtual Studio requires both proactive and reactive communication, as well as excellent verbal and written communication. My results for the last fiscal year reported over $2.5 million in sales revenue for the company. My role is not just sales, but a complete customer experience, with follow through and open communication with the client well after delivery has taken place. This is a very high paced sales environment that requires self management, collaboration and correspondence with multiple departments as we also collect data via client interaction to track and develop proposals for improvement. I have worked on initiatives focused on the company’s internal UX/UI and with product specialists to develop product training services.
