Group sales managers lead a sales team that services existing accounts and uses a variety of marketing and outreach strategies to generate and nurture new accounts. They may handle direct sales and engage in account management duties, and also supervise a team of sales specialists and leaders. They are focused on account development and growth, and develop and implement plans and strategies to help their group meet those objectives.
Group sales managers typically have at least a high school diploma, although a college degree is preferred. They have a background in sales or financial services, and have served in supervisory or leadership positions. They must be able to motivate teams and staff to drive sales and account growth goals. Strong marketing and strategic planning skills are helpful.
