ELOKON’s mission is to innovate for a safer material handling world. With over 3,000 customers globally and 130 dedicated and highly motivated employees, we engineer, sell and install award winning assistance systems for forklifts, incorporating in our products the latest sensor technologies used in the automotive industry.
As a privately held German 32 year old company, we are akin to many other success stories in the German logistics industry. We focus on long term sustainability and international growth, without disregarding the importance of year on year profitability.
To further capitalize on our recent customer successes in the U.S. markets, we are in the process of incorporating a U.S. subsidiary and are looking to hire, amongst others, a dynamic and experienced Key Accounts Manager.
The Key Accounts Manager serves as the primary relationship manager with responsibility for prospecting new business, cultivating relationships at enterprise accounts – both forklift OEMs and end-users-, and managing the sales process for our product portfolio. You will be the main client contact and must be able to gain access to all areas of the account (including business areas, IT, and upper management) in order to pursue and develop new opportunities.
A successful candidate will be able to partner ELOKON technical staff in a team-selling mode to gain the right audiences in the target accounts and match the client needs to solutions ELOKON can provide. You must be able to develop long term account strategies within the key industries ELOKON serves, to forecast and plan 1-3 years out and be able to accurately forecast sales opportunities 2-4 quarters out.
We are looking for someone with drive, passion and a competitive spirit. Our ideal candidate will have experience in selling products which hinge on an intelligent interplay of hardware, software, sensor and wireless technologies. Ideally, you have a strong network in the material handling industry. This position will be responsible for both new and existing customers.
