Account representatives - don't pass up this opportunity for a great new job that combines client management with a consultative sales process for a global industrial distribution company. Partnering with 4,000 world-class manufacturers, we are an industry-leading value-added distributor of a wide variety of innovative and reliable industrial products. Since 1923, we have been committed to always having the right part in stock and always getting it to the customer when they need it.

We are currently seeking an experienced Account Manager to help us maintain that commitment as we continue to grow.

This is a relationship-based sales role. Build your book of business as you develop an established territory and customer base.

If you have a background in industrial distribution and are the kind of person who can talk with everyone from the CEO to the maintenance man on the shop floor and the purchasing agent, we want to talk with you!


As an Account Manager, you will grow your territory (and your earnings!) by bringing in new business and developing repeat business relationships within your existing accounts. This will require that you call on engineers, maintenance, purchasing, and others to determine their needs through a consultative approach. This position reports directly to our General Manager.

+ Monitor customer complaints, follow up on outstanding orders, and mak emergency calls, night calls, and deliveries as required


Our Account Managers are self-motivated and driven by a desire to exceed expectations. They have strong prioritization, planning, and time-management skills, and a sense of urgency. Excellent verbal and written communication and interpersonal skills, and the ability to establish rapport building solid relationships at all levels of customer organizations are keys to success.
