Overview of the role:
Each Account Manager manages a territory of existing clients and is personally responsible for managing global accounts, growing revenues and embedding Passport (product) and Euromonitor (preferred supplier).
We seek client relationships where Passport is regarded as a must-have strategic tool (therefore ensuring renewal), we want clients to share information with us to help strengthen Passport (we call this “virtuous circle”) and we should be increasing revenues from a growing base of contacts and a better understanding of client organisation, strategy and priorities.
Account Managers will need to balance proactive revenue generating activities with client support. Time spent on the latter should be minimised as far as possible, in part by leveraging technical support and industry research teams (who can answer client questions directly), although Account Managers should always be looking for revenue opportunities hidden behind client queries.
Revenues will come from:
• Annual price increases on like-for-like renewal.
• Significant revenue growth from syndicated upsell
• Monetising account management by charging for analyst support (extractions, presentations, claim letters etc) and training, whenever possible.
• Custom research revenues – ensure all custom research capabilities are promoted to all clients.
This is a proactive, commercially driven role where success is ultimately measured in revenue growth. Account Managers must be confident and self-motivated, and keen to work closely with clients and drive the commercial agenda.
• Secure contract renewal and grow revenues for each client.
• Develop client relationships:
- understand company organisation, strategy and priorities,

• Provide expert research support to all clients, through detailed understanding of Euromonitor’s product portfolio and research methodology.
• Encourage information sharing to improve quality of data in Passport.
• Deliver industry presentations.
• Collaborate with industry teams:
- develop product offering to meet the changing needs of our client base,
- leverage research and industry expertise into the client base.
• Client retention – measured against 90% renewal target.
• Incremental revenue / upsell – against monthly and annual targets.
• Completeness of client maps / org charts, knowledge of clients’ businesses.
• Upsell strategy for all clients and clear plan to execute said strategies.
• Number of new users registered on Passport.

• Excellent communication and presentation skills.
• Knowledge of consumer markets trends and dynamics preferable
• Research experience and numeracy
