Our CDMO customer has a remarkable combination of technical capabilities and innovative applications, serving customers across biotech and pharmaceutical markets.

Businesses go to them for innovative ideas and integrated solutions. In this role the Account Manager will work with pharma and nutraceutical customers across North America, primarily on the West Coast, evaluating the market for new and existing products and/or raw materials.

The successful candidate will have responsibility for implementing the sales strategy and managing customer accounts. Working hand in hand with colleagues across the globe, evaluating market opportunity for new and existing offerings.

  • Create value propositions based on customer strategies, technical process, and market insights

  • Provide technical support to the assigned customer base by leveraging internal resources and subject matter experts

We are looking to speak with individuals who are passionate about spending maximum quality time developing and nurturing multi-level contacts with customers. This means being out in the “field”, travelling to customers operations across your territory and further afield when required. You can expect to be travelling at least 50% of your time.

Our customers’ Accounts Managers build great relationships and have excellent communication skills, building partnerships with stakeholders internally and externally alike.

With a degree in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering, or another related field, candidates will bring experience in some or all of excipients, oral solid dose formulations and film coatings.

It’s also possible that a candidate’s early career may have been in R&D, process manufacturing, operations, or quality. Their technical competence will be supported by demonstrable commercial acumen, a drive for results and excellent negotiation skills.

The Account Manager will be a strategic thinker, able to understand competitive insights and translate that into an effective strategy and action plan. Candidates need to be proactive and operate well with autonomy.
