I'm not sure there is ever a typical day in Sales but, I would have to say traveling weekly to work with National/Global Account prospects and/or work with current National Account/Global clients providing solution selling and sales support for Field and National Account/Global sellers. Interacting with both clients and co-workers to develop and deliver Value Added Solutions and Services to assist in simplifying and driving cost out of the clients Supply Chain is what I strive to do.
