Account Managers are responsible for the management of customer accounts with an organisation. They work to ensure existing clients are happy with the service they receive and also identify new clients and business opportunities.
Account Managers oversee a team of account executives who work on the day to day running of the accounts, and frequently work on a portfolio of different accounts. Account Managers are very common in the advertising and marketing sectors but they can work for any organisation that sells a product or service. This may be a large corporation, small business, advertising agency, financial services organisation, university or local authority.
