Who Our Account Executives Are:
An SMB (small and medium-sized business) Account Executive at inKind is responsible for nurturing relationships with restaurant owners while leveraging their knowledge of the inKind model to provide financing to restaurants. From the initial conversation to deal close, the Account Executive builds rapport with restaurant operators while collecting the necessary information to qualify them for an appropriate amount of inKind funding. As the first point of contact, the inKind Account Executive acts as a brand ambassador who can passionately convey the vision of inKind. With our nuanced financing model, our Account Executives must be capable of assessing a restaurant's needs and designing curtailed solutions to pinpoint how and where our product can help. Responsibilities:
- Establish and nurture relationships with restaurant owners in your territory
Demonstrate an understanding of the intricacies of inKind's financing model in order to convey the benefits and competitive differentiators of our product to restaurant operators
Successfully manage and progress deals through the sales cycle from initial call to deal close
Work fluidly and communicate effectively with teams internally to ensure transparency and efficiency
Document and track data on our CRM to streamline all sales activities
