Through getting to know my customers, I learn their needs, concerns, and pain points, which allows me to personalize solutions for them and provide value. I find that communication is the key to overcoming adversity in this role. Every day brings something different, and we tackle challenges head-on with effective communication and teamwork.

 How do you collaborate with other teams in your role as a Customer Account Manager?

As a Customer Account Manager, I work very closely with Carrier Sales. They provide us with key market insights, as well as essential capacity and pricing information. I can take that information to my customers to better inform their decision-making and create business wins. Carrier Sales is also invaluable to executing the freight; we work together to make sure everything is serviced above and beyond customer standards. Together, we make a great team!
