Business development is an integrated part of our team, as well as an integral part in relationship management with our client partners. Our business development team members have 3 primary responsibilities. 1) Grow our client list. This includes prospecting, research, contacting, meeting, and adding clients through “traditional” sales methods. Development team members must fully understand the existing needs and challenges – both in the market, and for each individual client – and show how we can help to meet those challenges and be a key partner in meeting an organization’s overall goals to generate ROI.

In conjunction with the production staff, our business development team is responsible for the strategic guidance and relationship management with their assigned base of business.

Our business development team is on the front lines of growing those relationships by bringing best practices and strategic direction to each and every client.
