Are you a self-starter who relishes the opportunity to create your own success? Do you care deeply about people and helping them pursue their dreams? Do you pride yourself on your determination and perseverance? Do you have a background or passion for aviation?
If you enthusiastically shout “YES!” to all of the questions above, then our team at Aviation Specialty Insurance wants to talk with you.
In a Sales Executive role, you will be responsible for building your own base of insurance clients and providing them with aviation insurance products from our extensive list of insurance providers. This is not easy work but can offer an excellent and rewarding career for someone who is highly motivated and goal oriented. It will require a mix of cold-calling, following up on warm in-bound leads, attending trade shows and, most importantly getting out into your regional aviation community and building strong relationships. You will hear hundreds of “no’s” and “not today’s” but you must be the type of individual who relishes the opportunity to turn a “no" into a “yes" - never backing down and always working hard to find a way to provide value to your prospects and customers.
We are seeking candidates who posses:
Resiliency and determination, tenacity, and a true heart to serve others and persevere
A passion for aviation - it’s not an absolute necessity to be an aviation professional (pilot, former military, etc.) but if somewhere in your background you have cultivated a passion and knowledge relative to aircraft and flying, you’ll be a step ahead
3-5 years’ work experience preferred, a proven record of success in sales helpful but not required
A Bachelor’s Degree related to Aviation and/or military background would be a plus
An existing insurance license or pilot’s license are preferred but not required (we will help the right candidate obtain training and certifications)
Excellent verbal and written communication skills
Self-motivated and able to work independently, prioritize time effectively, and strong attention to detail
PREFERRED LOCATION FOR THIS POSITION IS COLUMBUS, OH - but we are open to considering remote work from other locations
