Why I Started Account Manager Tips

Warwick Brown - Account Management leader and creator of Account Manager Tips

Warwick Brown

Welcome.  I’m delighted you’ve stopped by.

Account Management is a rewarding career.  I should know, I’ve been doing it for 20+ years.  I absolutely love it and feel very passionate about solving clients’ problems and helping my team win.

I spent a lot of years in customer service and operations roles before deciding Account Management was the career for me.  What appealed to me was how dynamic and different every day seemed to be.  The Account Managers I knew were selling, negotiating and out on the road meeting clients and saving the day.  They were also figuring out what products and services best fit our clients and how they could make the most of them in a meaningful way.  They built project plans and made them happen. They turned the dream into reality.  It also looked like a lot of fun and a meaningful way to have an impact on my clients.  salespeople, negotiators and analysts.  We’re technical support, finance, administration.  We’re problem solvers and project managers.

Sounds fun doesn’t it?  It is!

It’s also a lot of hard work.  Keeping your clients and making sure they’re profitable is tough.  And anytime anything goes wrong, the Account Manager is the first person people run to.  But that aside, it’s the best job I’ve ever had and the one where I’ve really felt I’ve made a difference.  I’ve come up with ideas that have saved companies millions or saved thousands of people hours of time or just made working together more enjoyable.  This is the stuff that gets me out of bed.

And that’s why I started Account Manager Tips.  I want to help YOU.
