Key Account Manager - Nordics
What you'll do:
Joining the Company as their Key Account Manager for the Nordics, in either Denmark, Norway, Sweden or Finland - starting by working-from-home (due to the Covid-19 restrictions), but the Company will open a serviced office in the future - your role will be to build up new relationships and develop warm accounts, to provide the Company's excellent Networking solutions to End-User clients across the Nordics Region.
You will offer the Client's bespoke Switching, Routing and Security-hardware solutions, from their Enterprise Partnership with OEM's like Cisco and Fortinet. Offering both refurbished and brand-new hardware, you will be responsible for the full end-to-end sale-cycle from acquisition, to negotiating the contract, working with internal IT Teams who will design the necessary IT infrastructure, before closing the deal and managing the relationship.
As the client-base is End-user clients from SMB to Enterprise, the Clients you target will vary from Telecomms Companies, Data-centers, IT Companies, Schools or Government for example, so you will need to engage with a wide variety of stakeholders and be able to present technical, sometimes complex hardware solutions.
The Company is a start-up Hardware and IT solutions reseller, but comprised of leadership from Industry veterans, with over 40 years' combined experience in the BeNeLux and wider EMEA IT networking space. Formed in the Autumn of last year, they have been highly-successful in offering Hardware and Security solutions in three main ways - through a Brokerage, or indirect sales model, directly to end-users, or through offering a repair service or solution to their clients.
They are Enterprise partners with vendors like Cisco, offering top-of-the-range equipment, that is put through rigorous Quality checks and supported by product-experts, so their professional solution is winning business all across Europe.
They have a vibrant, dynamic, experienced sales team, who are looking to add talented professionals to their business.
