Senior Account Manager

What You’ll Do

The Senior Tent Consultant maintains client relationships, pinpoints new business opportunities, and oversees intricate and multifaceted projects from initial consultation to the final billing phase. The role requires vigilant observation of industry trends to uncover emerging markets and opportunities as well as developing strategies to capitalize on those opportunities and grow revenue.

A comprehensive grasp of event operations is essential, and qualified applicants must possess the ability to coordinate with multiple vendors and a thorough knowledge of temporary structures, flooring, and their related components. In-house, the Senior Tent Consultant demonstrates leadership in helping to design and orchestrate projects undertaken by the entire sales team. This position requires a robust operational approach and innovative thinking in design and production, which are pivotal in attracting new clientele and fortifying the brand’s reputation.

Although headquartered in Bohemia, NY, the role may require regional and national travel to secure business and assist with project implementation, as well as an unwavering on-site commitment, often extending to weekends and evenings, to guarantee the flawless execution of projects. A standard workweek is observed, with at least two and a half days dedicated to office-based tasks. The Senior Tent Consultant operates under the direct supervision of the Vice President of Sales.
