Episode 73 – From Army Officer to Account Manager – Lessons Learned

Cameron-Brooks podcast episode 73 - From Army Officer to Account Manager

Welcome back! On this most recent podcast episode, we feature Ben Sewell’s JMO transition from Army officer to Account Manager in Corporate America. Ben made the transition from the military to Corporate America in 2014. He’s in an Account Management role at Altec.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What Altec is and what they do (learn more on their YouTube channel)
  • Ben’s customers and how he brings value to them
  • Some of the best things about being in an account management/business development role
  • How his military background connects to what he’s doing now
  • A specific deal he’s worked on recently
  • A typical day-in-the-life for Ben
  • Career progression

We feel Ben’s experience transitioning from an Army officer to an Account Manager is so helpful to getting an inside look at a specific slice of Corporate America. Therefore, we hope it helps in your learning and discovery process during the JMO transition from the military to corporate career.
