We are looking for an individual to manage strategic engagements, working closely with project teams and business development to forge new relationships with client stakeholders.
The CEM team was created to provide concierge-level account support to our key customers and unlock potential mutual value we see in our partnerships.

To do so, you must keep a pulse on projects through connections you create with client stakeholders and project-teams who are responsible for delivering multi-year initiatives. Creating a viable business partnership with our clients will require you to maintain awareness of contract details and key dates to facilitate conversations about budget, renewals, and team transitions. Maintaining connections with delivery team managers that support project planning and operations will be crucial for creating well-orchestrated engagements, tailored to the unique needs of each engagement, and essential for long-term account success.
