Placed on 10/10/2017
Our worldwide subsidiaries in France, Germany, the UK, Turkey, Russia, India and the USA have their own Sales departments, but there are also account managers working out of the head office in the Netherlands. From their base at our head office in Varsseveld, they act as an intermediary between our global importers, partners and VB-Airsuspension. In their particular market area, they acquire new clients, develop and improve relationships with existing clients and provide advice, for example on ways to improve performance and save money. Together with the Marketing and Communication department, the account managers are also responsible for national and international trade fairs at which we are represented. They also provide support to VB-Partners by attending regional or national trade fairs where VB products are being exhibited.
The account managers are assisted by two colleagues who are responsible for providing sales support. They ensure that orders and invoices are processed and resolve customer enquiries.
