As the Financial Services Team Lead in New York, you will manage a team of experienced sales professionals across the country to drive top-line revenue growth and deliver target achievement for the Financial Services Practice.

Reporting to the Head of Financial Services, you will help field sales stay focused on outbound client management – by removing internal friction, making decisions about deal priority, teams to involve, briefings, timelines, deadlines, added value, etc. When a significant RFP comes in requiring the diverse skills and integration of the broader organization, you set the approach, and are the guide and navigator. As a result, you are responsible for all internal, day-to-day sales team support; process management and issue escalation; revenue/pipeline tracking, reporting, analytics and optimization. The ultimate goals: velocity in market; accuracy of forecasting; target delivery. The analog: senior, strategic, air-traffic control. The vision: today, this month, and two quarters out.

  • Be a representative of Bloomberg's complete multi-platform media offerings, the first and daily liaison with editorial, and ensure we are making the most of our diverse strength and assets.
  • Collaborate actively with clients on “ideas-programs” to advance their business,
  • Be the lead innovator and engineer when it comes to building packages and deals across our ecosystem.
  • Partner with strategy teams and work across editorial, media sales, technology, events and operations, as well as have a point-of-view on commercial business and brand strategy.

You'll need to have:

  • Track record of repeated revenue and share growth
