Strategic Account Analyst

Gas South

job description

Are you an innovative and adaptable self-starter who enjoys finding solutions to open-ended problems? Are you a critical thinker who can balance an eye for detail with big-picture vision? Do you value developing customer loyalty and enjoy building relationships?  Do you want to work for a growing energy company in a highly competitive market? Then the Strategic Account Analyst may be the job for you!

As a Strategic Account Analyst, you’ll provide direct account management services for a portfolio of wholesale and industrial accounts requiring specialized, technical industry expertise on a broad array of supply, trading, rate design, and invoice management topics. You will be a key player in the development of sales proposals, scenario modeling, and contract execution activities, and will also own the responsibility for the day to day coverage of the account’s operational requests. You will support wholesale/industrial origination initiatives and reposition existing processes in supply management and billing for this segment focusing on efficiency and scale. While primary responsibility for acquisition and renewal activity lives within the inside/outside sales teams, you will partner with Sales to support a “team selling” paradigm for select large industrial customers, municipalities, direct connects and strategic deals as identified through the Southeast. Business modeling, reporting, and product structuring are important support functions of this role.

Are you a fit?    

A successful candidate for this role is proactive, curious, and a good critical thinker. You are organized, thorough and appreciate progress.
