Are you an ambitious key account manager with experience in private-label beauty, cosmetics, or personal care?
Do you love seeing the impact of your work as you deliver wins for you and your clients?
As an experienced and ambitious KAM  or BDM  you will jump into this fast-paced and challenging role, taking 360 ownership of the sales and commercial elements with key retail accounts.
