The Account Manager is responsible for developing relationships with Oncology Integrated Customers and leveraging these relationships to generate increased demand and access for an individual Oncology product by targeting appropriate influencers and decision-makers within the integrated customer environment. Each Account Manager will have lead account responsibility for 7-12 customer accounts in multiple locations. The Account Manager will call on key decision makers and prescribers across the account (C-suite, Pathway and P&T committee members) and promote the Oncology product at target accounts.

  • Develop and drive the relationship with target accounts, including establishing and maintaining positive relationships with key influencers and decision makers within the accounts, such as Key Opinion Leaders, Oncology department supervisors, and members of Medical Evaluation Committees
  • Build and manage account profile for each assigned account, detailing procedure for protocol development, pull-through targets for sales force, current placement of product on pathway and protocols, and identification of key influencers and protocol decision-makers.
  • Employ in-person tactics to execute against account plans, including visiting accounts to promote sales efforts, manage contract strategy (where appropriate), and provide clinical, efficacy and safety information on product to key treatment decision makers/executive teams within these high control accounts.
  • Evaluate unique needs of the Integrated Customer and work with Regional Business Leader and other corporate functions (e.g., Managed Markets, Trade Relations, Value Access, Contracting, Medical, HEOR, Marketing) to develop tactical strategies to support account needs and expand use of product.
