Sales Lead - Benelux
Posted on Apr 24, 2023 by Levy Associates Ltd
The role of Client Principal (CP) is an integral part of our business, often acting as the first point of contact for our clients, developing into long term relationships. The CP is responsible for creating new opportunities and building and retaining relationships throughout the sales and engagement cycle.
Since we sell services, our CPs need to be able to elicit information from prospective clients pertaining to their needs and problems. This requires an inquiring mind, sufficient knowledge to know what to ask, and the ability to retain that information over time. Only once this information is known, can the right services and offerings be selected. During this selection process, the CP will need to work closely with our
principal consultants, and other key stakeholders, to ensure we offer the best solution and can deliver it.
Our sales cycles are often long, and as such the CP needs to maintain contact with prospective clients over long periods of time, being disciplined in how and when they make contact, ensuring we are making relevant offers in a differentiated manner, to build reputation, credibility, and trust.
The CP is an instrumental leadership role within our EU business, needing to demonstrate initiative, collaboration, and the tenacity to remain focussed and driven over time. This is a role for someone that wants to be part of building a business.
