Trimble has announced that Marcus Schlag of Trimble's Field Service Management (FSM) division has been shortlisted as a 2012 finalist in the 'Strategic Account Manager of the Year' category, in the National Sales Awards.
Now entering their 16th year, the National Sales Awards are designed to educate the wider business community about the qualities, characteristics and attitudes possessed by the country's best sales people.
As alliances director for Trimble FSM's EMEA region, Schlag is responsible for developing indirect sales strategies and establishing strategic relationships with customers.
With over 10 years' experience working with software solutions in EMEA, his strong business development skills have led to a track record of new business acquisition and consistent revenue stream.
"We are delighted that Marcus has been shortlisted for such a well-respected and sought after award,” said Mark Forrest, general manager of Trimble's Field Service Management Division.
"His contribution within Trimble is of the highest quality and he has helped in closing some of our most significant customer accounts and continues to play an active account management role in these partnerships."
As a finalist of the awards, the next stage is to present to a panel of independent judges in September. The panel of representatives from within the industry will then make the final decision which will be announced at the awards ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London in November.
