Business Development Manager (M2M)Main Responsibilities
The Business Development Manager will be responsible for the development of customer accounts with particular emphasis on the discovery and qualification of new addressable opportunities. In particular this position will focus on the development of new business for Eurotechs emerging M2M and IoT platforms, products and services, rather than for its more traditional embedded systems.
The position involves direct responsibility for all aspects of the front end of the sales process, including researching and targeting potential clients, lead generation, qualification and subsequent account development.
The position will be supported by a team of pre-sales engineers who will engage with the client engineering team to secure the technical design-in on any identified and qualified opportunity that Eurotech agree to pursue. The BDM will, however, retain responsibility for the commercial relationship with the client and, ultimately, for closure of the opportunity. The ability to work as part of a close, mutually supportive team is therefore essential.
You will be required to comply with the company reporting and forecasting procedures based around the companies CRM system, together with progress reports to include an update on key potential customers and market intelligence, such as feedback on pricing & competition, the state of the industry and opportunities for product development.
The position will involve substantial travel to customer sites in pursuance of the above goals.
You will be expected to contribute to the growth and development of the Sales Team by actively seeking to share knowledge and to support other members of the team.
It is essential that you take a leading role in representing the company on new opportunities and help the Sales Team develop further business in existing accounts.
