You will:

  • Take ownership of ~100 customers assigned to you and are ultimately responsible for their success, and therefore renewal.
  • Understand your customer’s needs, capabilities, and waste management strategy, in order to help them achieve their goals - such as increased diversion, decreased contamination and reducing phone call volumes.
