🚀 About the position:
At Grip, hundreds of leading event organisers worldwide work with us as a partner in achieving their business goals to connect, inspire and engage their event participants.
As the US Account Director, you’ll hold ultimate responsibility for the health, retention and growth of all US Clients. The main role of Account Management at Grip is to be a sounding board for executives in our client organisations, creating strong relationships with key decision-makers to drive retention, growth, and long-term success.
We work in a “land & expand” strategy, often resulting in a relatively small initial engagement, with multi-million dollar contracts as the long-term potential. Your responsibility will be to put a sales & engagement strategy together with New Business and Event Success to realize this potential.
🚀 Core Responsibilities:
Things move pretty fast at Grip so, although the role will focus on being a leader in Account Management, you'll likely end up wearing quite a few hats and gaining experience across a variety of responsibilities.
