Client Executive – MENA
Global Client Team · United Arab Emirates Hybrid Remote
Our client executives nurture our account and are key in our success, building the future of payments!
As Client Executive you will be responsible for providing excellent service to some of our key clients in the MENA region.
Our main goal is to not be “just” a service provider but rather our clients’ trusted advisor when it comes to payment solutions. You will be the go-to person for a portfolio of clients and ultimately be responsible for driving a positive experience for them. This includes building a solid relationship with them from Day One, resolving all issues either independently or with the help of internal teams, and making sure that our products are being used optimally in order to maximize success for both the client and Paymentology.
What you’ll be doing:
- Establishing and maintaining strong client relationships through regular on-onsite visits, telephone/ Skype/ Zoom calls, and email communication.
- Develop a strong understanding of the customer's business including payment strategy across all product platforms.
- Paymentology prides itself on being quick and agile, so we’ll look to you to ensure that client requests are immediately acknowledged and resolved as quickly as possible, either on your own or by coordinating with internal teams.
- You will be an expert on each client’s line of business and act as their strategic partner. You will identify opportunities to develop the client eco-system through the upsell of Paymentology products and ensure continuous growth in Paymentology’s transactions and revenue.
- If not already, you’ll also become an expert on payment processing and Paymentology’s in particular and be able to talk about our product and technology and how they can meet clients’ needs.
- In addition to supporting our clients, you’ll also work closely with our global partners (Mastercard, Visa, banks, etc), suppliers and other partners, plus internal teams like Customer Support and Tech.
- Work alongside the New Business team during the new client rollout phase to ensure a seamless transition and positive experience for the client as they prepare to launch our product.
- Training and educating the Support and Reconciliation teams on the specific needs of your clients.
- Navigate your way through the tough conversations, negotiations, and facilitate conflict resolution when needed while keeping in mind that top-notch service is at the heart of what we do.
And for this role you’ll need:
