National Account Executive – Sales

The most exciting time of the sports calendar is approaching! Join a company that is at the heart of it!

Feel free to either apply here with your complete resume or submit your resume directly to [email protected].

Our clients will be attending NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament sites all over the U.S. in the next few weeks. Once that finishes up, we are off to the Masters Tournament, Kentucky Derby, PGA Championship, and eventually the U.S. Open Golf Championship! We are looking for quick witted, hard-working, persuasive communicators to join our sales team to help grow our fantastic client base.

Our company, International Sports Management (ISM) is the global leader in providing corporate sports hospitality and ticketing packages for events around the world. Our company headquarters office in Chicago is expanding our national sales team as demand for our events continues to grow! Post-pandemic, corporate sports participation is exceeding record numbers and is projected to continue to do so into 2023 and beyond, which is why we are looking to bring on more Account Executives with a targeted start date of mid-April.

The National Account Executive position will be responsible for new business generation with multi-million dollar companies by selling packages to major sporting events. Our clients use ISM to host and entertain their top accounts, prospects, and incentivize their top performers. The position will teach you a full cycle sale with guidance from high energy managers who started in this exact role. This is an inside sales position where you would be calling on companies in many of the major U.S. cities. Once you have had initial success in the role, it begins to incorporate account management in addition to new business generation. Furthermore, there is growth potential for promotion into sales management within the first 18 months of your start date.

If you are interested in B2B Sales or have the desire to learn how to sell, we should talk! A successful candidate will bring plenty of energy, be assertive and money motivated. If you fit the mold, then we encourage you to apply to be a part of a group that has had 3 consecutive years of record revenue numbers! Recent college graduates are also encouraged to apply, as our ISM Training Program will help take your most relevant work & class experience and transition what you have learned into success. This is the perfect opportunity for individuals wishing to gain experience and launch their careers in the business world.
