Principal Account Executive

CCS Insight is looking to fill this role in its sales organisation.

The Principal Account Executive will develop and carry out a plan to achieve sales targets and increase the value that customers receive from CCS Insight services. The plan will be devised by consulting and collaborating with customers, members of the sales team, and other CCS Insight staff.

The successful candidate will be required to forecast and meet sales revenue goals. This includes qualifying and disqualifying business opportunities, understanding customers' decision-making processes, identifying customer problems, presenting the benefits of CCS Insight services to current and prospective customers, helping to deliver CCS Insight products and services, creating strategic account plans and maintaining accurate forecasts.

Tasks will also involve developing detailed proposals, negotiating contracts, answering customers' enquiries, creating plans to close forecast business, closing business in a timely manner and understanding CCS Insight's product set and what it offers clients. The Principal Account Executive will be responsible for growing usage of CCS Insight services within accounts and for establishing and maintaining strong relationships with senior leaders and users within client organisations.

Candidates should possess:

  • A minimum of five years' sales experience, with demonstrable ability to grow revenue streams.
  • Experience selling within a reoccurring-revenue business model, either subscriptions or service offerings.
  • Experience of selling consulting services.
  • Familiarity with selling technology, media and telecom research is desirable, but not essential.
  • Demonstrable success in closing large and complex sales within a services business, involving multiple stakeholders and helped by an in-depth knowledge of a sector and excellent negotiation and relationship-building skills.
  • Evidence of having developed and implemented strategies for revenue growth that capitalise on the unique nature of specific environments. Candidates should have the skills to adapt and employ products, services and operations to effectively compete in competitive markets.
  • A flexible attitude, with the ability to collaborate and support colleagues at all levels of organisation, from board level to juniors.
  • A self-starter approach, with the ability to develop a business plan that will substantially grow a subscription business within six to 18 months.
