Our client a leading IT financier are seeking to hire a Munich area located Partner Development Account Executive. This is new hire of a senior business development role focussed on the development of IT finance business from two of our clients largest strategic partners.

Each partner has an addressable market opportunity of over $1BN and sells > $160m a year of volumes of our clients own products and services.

One partner finances c$55m a year with a market competitor of our client but this represent under 30% of their typical annual finance, the other partner is a huge seller of IT products and services but has typically been more of a tactical rather than strategic user of finance not only in Germany but across Europe.

Today our client are financing typically $3m a year from the above two, the opportunity is huge but the challenge is one is gaining mind share with senior managers to move use of finance from tactical to strategic with one partner and to gain traction with the other to engage our client more actively.

Whilst your role is mainly focussed on developing the partner relationship at times you will find yourself getting involved with structuring and closing transactions. A typical transaction would be c$300,000 for some types of products our client sells and perhaps $50,000 for other types. We are happy to expand upon this for qualified applicants.

Increasingly both partners are offering consumption based solutions to their customers.You can expect to be involved in assisting on these type of solutions plus of course managed services and receivables funding structures.

Targets are very realistically set for year one at c$8M to $10m rising to $20m for year two reflecting the very strong development nature of this new role and current volumes being achieved.
