Story Of My Life: Brett, Customer Account Executive

As a Customer Account Executive, I identify, qualify and close deals with state, local government and higher-education enterprise customers in the Eastern U.S. region. I accelerate my customers’ time-to-value with our solutions via quick responses and a commitment to meeting their needs. I’ve tapped into the knowledge of our senior sales reps and management for the help and resources I need to confidently and knowledgeably lead our customers, industry, and market. I interact with my local and virtual account teams on a day-to-day basis either face-to-face or through Microsoft’s Teams app.

I joined AvePoint in December 2017. Prior to working here, I was a 2-time, first team Academic All-American football player at Fordham University. I finished my undergrad degree early, earned my MBA, and worked in the finance industry before transitioning into software sales. Just like competitive sports, software sales has offered the reward and advancement based directly on the amount of success I have on the job.

I’m close to a year into my AvePoint career and my favorite aspect about working here is easily the camaraderie and team spirit. Everyone is super friendly both locally and globally, and I’ve already formed special bonds with various colleagues. Sales is a career with inherent variance but, although cliché, I truly enjoy the moments shared with everyone I’m in contact with every day. Outside of the office you can find me playing basketball, trying out new cuisine, exploring NYC, or rooting for my favorite sports teams (Go Patriots, Celtics, and Red Sox!).

At AvePoint, we’ve built an environment for lifelong learners to go to the next level, sharpen their skillsets, and develop professionally and personally. Small failures are experimental, mentors will guide you, and you’re trusted and empowered to bring your full talents to the table. What will your story be at AvePoint?
