About The Role:
Whalar is seeking an Account Management Senior Director to retain, grow and elevate our partnerships with tech and telecom partners.

What is Account Management?
Account Management is a post-sales role that focuses on nurturing client relationships. Account managers have two primary objectives: retain clients’ business and grow those opportunities.
Unlike a sales role, which is designed to be more short-term and focuses on “hunting” and bringing in new clients, the account manager acts as a long-term liaison and, hopefully, a trusted consultant for the client.
In other words, sales is meant to be more short-term and transactional and account management is about building more engaged relationships.
AM Director Responsibilities:
The base salary range for this role is $150k - $170k + bonus
