As a key member of Union Street Media’s sales department, the Account Strategist is primarily responsible for cultivating relationships and generating new clients for Union Street Media, typically through selling our leading digital marketing services and other related products (websites, videos, etc.). The Account Strategist will also be responsible for implementing processes and strategies that shorten the sales lifecycle and increase adoption within our existing markets. The ideal Account Strategist is a highly motivated, persistent, results driven, critical thinker and problem solver, who understands how to translate complex concepts into plain English and is undeterred by “no”.
