Finding the Right Market Research Sales Candidates

Analytical, consultative, and with a deep understanding of how to help C-suite executives and their teams grow their business, our best candidates have delivered outstanding results for some of the biggest names in the market research category. DANA’s precision recruitment methodology and extensive Boston-Cambridge network mean we only present you with the best individuals for your high-level sales positions.

In the market research industry, sales professionals must understand how to effectively communicate both the tangible and intangible value of your solution to prospective clients. They specialize in bringing nuance and practicality to selling products and services that solve critical business problems to help companies innovate and grow.

Professionals who succeed in market research have strong business acumen, enabling them to effectively close deals—power selling to customers without a defined buying process or budget in place. They are adept at clearly demonstrating the impact of market insights and research solutions on a company’s business, marketing, and technology strategy. They know the answers lie in the data.

You need to find sales professionals with the skills to champion market research, but you also need candidates who mesh with your company’s culture, mission, and vision. Recruiting the right personality fit brings immense cross-functional value to your organization, building trust and consensus that can only lead to achieving outstanding business results.
