Qbase were recently recruiting for the position of Account Manager to work with our Data Strategy and Data Acquisition team. We required a candidate who is experienced in creating and implementing data driven marketing solutions and who is also able to identify and convert prospects into new customers.
After an extensive and rigorous recruitment and selection process we identified Rob Watson as the perfect candidate for the role. Rob, who joined Qbase on 13th April 2015, now works with Jane Baddeley in Mark Robinson’s team.
NATURAL BORN SELLER
Rob Watson has over 10 years of experience delivering data driven marketing solutions to organisations across the global, and was most recently the Sales Director of a direct marketing agency in the North West of England.
Throughout Rob’s career he has been in a sales and account management environment. In his first role Rob was a Business Development Manager for a data driven direct marketing agency and was responsible for identifying new customers and matching their business requirements to the most effective solutions.
Rob’s background made him the number one candidate for the role and has allowed him to hit the ground running. In his first week, before his official induction, Rob visited Qbase head office, collected his business cards and was out setting up meetings at one of the Europe’s largest fleet management tradeshows in London.
Mark Robinson, Vice President at Qbase, said: “I’ve known Rob for a number of years and have always been impressed with his knowledge of data driven marketing solutions, and his ability to help customers implement these to leverage significant business benefits. That is what Qbase is all about. Ensuring customers are getting the most out of their data in the most cost-effective way possible. Having Rob on the team is a great acquisition for Qbase and for our customers, and no doubt he will play a huge role in the growth of the business in the years ahead”.
INVESTING IN GROWTH
Over the past 18 months Qbase has invested significantly in resources and technology as it builds for growth in the years ahead. Recruiting Rob was part of a bigger growth strategy that Qbase is currently implementing.
“Having worked within the data strategy and data acquisition industry for many years I’ve often crossed paths with a number of people at Qbase. Getting the opportunity to work here is like a dream come true, especially since I’ve seen the extent of the investment the organisation is making in resources and technology. The company is set up for extensive growth in the years ahead and I’m looking forward to playing a big role in that”, said Rob Watson, Account Manager at Qbase.
