  • Learning about products and being able to explain to, and discuss these, with customers.
  • Asking questions to understand customer requirements, and closing the sale to result in the placement of an order.
  • Foster strong relationships with both external sales and internal functions to ensure that the customer and company interests are equally served.
  • Work with the manufacturing department and third-party logistics providers to ensure customers’ expectations are met on time, in full.
