Sample Sales Executive Cover Letter

 Dear Human Resources,


With the knowledge and experience in Business Development and Consulting, I have decided to leverage my Advertising and Investment Banking background and transition into a new role. In this introductory cover letter, my intent is to highlight and convey my educational background, current work experience, past entrepreneurial endeavors, and future goals and aspirations.  My last role was a Sr. Account Manager with LowerMyBills, an on-line mortgage lead generation company managing large National accounts.  I am looking to utilize my previous skills and experiences and move into a Sales Executive position with ZipSearch.


Educationally, I graduated from California State University of Fullerton with my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Marketing in 1995.  Subsequently, I moved to New York and went to Fordham University and pursued my Master of Arts Degree in Economics.  Additionally, I attended Rice University in Houston Texas for one semester while I was working at JPMorgan Chase.


I have extensive knowledge and experience in several areas such as negotiating contracts and meeting and exceeding budgetary and revenue goals.  Additionally, I have experience with financial analysis, advertising and marketing, in a consultative sales environment. During my 12 year professional career, I have been in a sales capacity, either face-to-face, where I have created and presented presentations to C-Level executives or over the telephone.  I have been in management positions, at Wells Fargo Bank and JPMorgan Chase Bank, where I have made executive decisions.  Working at ADVO, Inc. the leader in targeted direct mail advertising allowed me to gain knowledge and experience in developing promotional campaigns, negotiating contracts, dealing with budget constraints and interacting with community leaders.  As a Sr. Account Manager with LowerMyBills managing large national banks and mortgage brokers, my duties consisted of creating proposals, making presentations, and acquiring new accounts as well as growing the revenue in my existing book of business. 


As an entrepreneur, I have created successful businesses, which have been very profitable.  The experience, the training and wealth of knowledge I have acquired, I have leveraged into my current professional role.  Within the corporate structure, I have been able to think outside the box, assert new and creative ideas to achieve revenue growth and success.  All the while, staying cognitive of the corporate big picture and maintaining optimal operational control.   


Presently, I am looking to pursue and explore another venture.  Over the past 12 years my professional career, with Wells Fargo, JPMorgan, ADVO, and LowerMyBills, I have acquired and enhanced several skills.  Now, I would like the opportunity to use those skills with your company.  I believe my personal and professional experiences will allow me to contribute to the bottom-line with your company immediately.   


Enclosed is a copy of my resume.  I have open availability for an interview, either over the telephone and/or face-to-face.  I can be reached via e-mail and/or by the telephone numbers listed above.
