Essential Qualities
  • A strong sense of pride and ownership of the account and the 2 sites that come with it. He/She needs to think and act as one would if they actually owned these sites instead of being a Managing Agent. They have to constantly ask themselves, what they would do if it was their home/own office. 
  • Commitment to Service Quality & Excellence - The candidate must have the ethos required of a person working in one of the best corporations in the world that prides itself on the user experience. He/She should be able to anticipate the customer’s needs and ensure that steps are taken to address them before they become an issue. If they do become an issue, the candidate should be able to act quickly and immediately go into service recovery mode to win back the customer’s confidence. 
  • Excellent communications skills – The customer prefers the personal approach and the candidate must be comfortable in meeting up in person with the customer regularly to address issues that may arise. The candidate should also be able to develop similar confidence and skills in the site team to communicate effectively with the end user. The candidate should also always ‘close the loop’ and follow up with proper communication with the customer once issues are resolved. 
  • Strong Leadership Skills – The candidate should have strong leadership skills and should be able to command the respect of his/her direct reports. He/She should have the confidence and the knowledge to make sound decisions in the best interests of both CBRE and the customer. He/She should also be able to delegate duties effectively but retain accountability as the Account Manager. 
  • A strong sense of responsibility and accountability– The candidate should be willing to respond to urgent incidents or activities outside of regular working hours if required. This can be done in partnership with the Asst. Manager, but the candidate must retain overall accountability.
