Sales Officer

Sales revolve around understanding the customer's needs and solving those needs with the help of products and/or services. With this, sales functions today are just as much business partners who conduct competence-based sales, rather than pure sellers of products.

This also places new demands on the competence of executives engaged in sales and marketing.

Not only do you need to have solid knowledge about your own products and services, you must also be able to understand the customers’ needs and understand their business. In several markets it is important that sales strategies focus on the customers ‘customers, and how to streamline and improve the customers’ business models.

Sales officers are often very important partners to the CEO. Sales officers help create top line growth, while also having the closest contact with the customers. Predictability and trust are therefore important. Sales executives must work closely with the market and quickly see, perceive, and understand new trends. It is also perhaps in this capacity that we find the difference between the best and second-best sales officers. In today’s fast-changing markets, this capability is especially important.
