The Key Account Manager (Key AM) plays a critical and unique role at Euromonitor International. Key AMs are smart, versatile and driven. They have a keen interest in global consumer markets and emerging consumer trends. Key AMs use these skills and interests to help advise globally minded executives in F50 clients based in the US and Canada.

They are savvy and can confidently interact with executives to understand their responsibilities and goals in order to help them best leverage our services. In addition to client interactions, you will partner internally to develop and drive a global account strategy within the Chicago office and across our 14 international offices.
