Now is the time to join InfoTrust! Recently named #4 on Fortune's Best Companies to Work For list, we are fast-growing and are seeking new team members ready to jump in and help us expand our client relationships. The good news—our clients love us, proven by our NPS of 72.

We are proud to work with over 50 Fortune 500 companies and our company is growing at record pace, with the help of the Client Growth Team. We are looking to add top talent to our organization to expand client relationships and add even more value. This remote role offers competitive compensation and benefits.

Strategic Account Executive

InfoTrust’s Client Growth Team is seeking an accomplished Strategic Account Executive to drive growth opportunities and expand relationships across a portfolio of client partnerships. The Strategic Account Executive will be assigned a number of key clients and will be responsible for scaling our fast-growing data and analytics business.

The best Account Executives are more than sales representatives for our clients – they’re strategic leaders and client advocates who create win-win scenarios for our partners and InfoTrust. Our Client Growth Team expands relationships and revenue while driving strategy and collaboration amongst leadership stakeholders.

Account Executives’ primary focus is on growing revenue via add-ons/upsells, not prospecting or cold calling. As such, some travel is required to develop the deep relationships that make us successful (typically 2 weeks/trips per quarter, visiting multiple clients within a single trip).
