International Sports Management (ISM), the global leader in the provisioning of corporate sports hospitality and ticketing packages for events across the world, is rolling out an expansion of our national sales team right here in Chicago at our U.S. Headquarters.  Corporate sports participation is exceeding record numbers and is projected to continue to do so into 2021, 2022 and beyond, and we are looking to bring on more Account Executives with a targeted start date of early-November.

The National Account Executive position will be responsible for new business generation, calling on companies around the U.S. and selling packages to major sporting events such as the NCAA Basketball Tournament, Ryder Cup Matches, Super Bowl, College Football Championship, U.S. Open, and many more. If you have experience in B2B Sales or have the desire to learn how to sell, we should talk! The position will expand into account management in addition to new business generation, along with growth potential for promotion into sales management within the first 6-8 months.

This is an inside sales position where you would be calling on companies in major cities around the U.S., interacting and building relationships with Vice Presidents, Presidents, and CEOs of multi-million-dollar companies.
