Come be a part of our team environment, where you will receive the opportunity for training, and continuous coaching, to support your success.
In this role, you will play a key role on our sales team by focusing on expanding our horizon of exhibitors and sponsors, and by partnering with our Account Managers and Partner Solutions team, to help achieve team sales goals. You will do this by researching and prospecting companies currently not participating in ASIS events including, but not limited to, GSX, CSO Summit, and Security Xchange.
