Jacqui Wahl, an experienced sales professional in Charlotte, NC, was present as the special guest in a recently broadcasted episode of Business Innovators Radio’s Making Major Moves in the Marketplace. On course of being interviewed by the show host Ed Bracey, Jacqui revealed insightful details about the past and present experiences related to her illustrious sales career.
Jacqui started the discussion by mentioning that she is currently engaged as an Account Executive in Group Sales for the NBA team, the Charlotte Hornets. In a job role that is significantly different from stereotyped sales positions, she organizes theme nights and events to bring in large crowds where her efforts are primarily focused on awareness events partnering with different non-profits in the community as well as networking events, fundraisers, and corporate outings.
After her graduation from Florida State University, Jacqui started a career in the field of PR. She held multiple PR roles in New York City’s fashion industry before making her way back down south to Charlotte, North Carolina for a marketing position. This is the time when she found her niche working in sales and eventually ended up in her present position.
During the interview, Jacqui spoke about the necessary qualities to succeed in a sales career. “You do need a certain skillset. You do have to have the natural ability to connect with others and find ways to talk to them, “she said. Jacqui also informed that she has had more than a few mentors that have taught her the tricks to succeed in a challenging work environment.
