Director of Sales Effectiveness

State Street Corporation. - Boston, MA

Job Description:

The institutional asset management industry is evolving. Clients need more than products; they need a trusted partner and advisor with a deep understanding of their needs who can help them achieve their goals. State Street Global Advisors (SSGA) is seeking a motivated Director of Sales Effectiveness who can enable and empower our institutional sales team to excel in this environment. Are you that catalyst?

As the Director of Sales Effectiveness within SSGA’s Americas Institutional Client Group (ICG), you will develop and lead initiatives designed to drive improvement in the efficiency and efficacy of our sales process and outcomes with sophisticated clients. This will include you crafting and implementing a sales curriculum, in partnership with State Street’s Learning and Development Team, designed to hone business development skills, deepen product knowledge, and drive consistent messaging throughout the sales lifecycle. You will do this in close collaboration with our investment, product and marketing teams, as well as our centralized learning and development resources. You will be part of a talented team responsible for driving new business by meeting the evolving needs of prospective and existing clients.

Due to the breadth of our product offering, and the complex nature of our clients’ needs, building positive relationships across the entire organization will be essential to your success. You will also partner with colleagues in other regions of the world to ensure global coordination in our approach to sales effectiveness and curriculum. Your interactions will take many forms, including participating in projects and strategies related to complex client opportunities. You will also be responsible for broader, more thematic initiatives to continuously improve our engagement with clients in ways that make them think of us first when they have an investment problem or challenge. Can you lead and empower others to do more than they thought possible? This may be the right next challenge for you.
