The primary responsibility of the Business Development Representative is to open new accounts in the Dallas market, but will also be expected to periodically call on existing customers. From time to time, this position may require in-person visits to prospective new accounts, but most sales activity will be via the phone and email, with extensive cold calling required. The Business Development Representative is expected to generate their own list of prospective new accounts, so a hunter mentality is required. The Business Development Representative can also leverage an extensive database of dormant accounts and pickup/delivery destinations already familiar with Hazel’s, and is expected to service their existing accounts as needed to ensure business continuity and expansion of sales with existing accounts. Business Development Representatives will be responsible for adding an updating all customer contact information in our CRM software.
Hazel’s provides a wide array of services for you to pitch to customers including:
