Re: Account Manager, Job. Ref. #12345 Advertised on Monster

Dear Mr. Brooks:

As a solutions-focused commercial insurance account manager with 5 years of top-ranked experience, my qualifications are an excellent fit to the account manager position advertised on Monster.

Since joining XYZ Company 3 years ago as an account manager (commercial lines), I have built loyal, lasting relationships with small business customers spanning a range of industries. My passion for winning new business is matched by my drive to exceed customer expectations, and I have proven my strengths in each of these areas through my history of:

  • Quota-surpassing production at XYZ for 3 years in a row.
  • #1 scores in policyholder satisfaction amongst account managers region-wide for the past 2 years.
  • Top 3 results in the number of new commercial general liability (CGL), Workers Compensation (WC) and commercial property insurance policies written in the state of Florida during the past year.

These results are reproducible for ABC Corporation. If hired, I would be able to “hit the ground running” as a top-performing account manager, lead generator and sales closer.

Backed by P&C licensure, I take pride in helping my clients mitigate risk and guard against losses. I have demonstrated strong communication skills with each of my accounts, and deliver outstanding service by thoroughly explaining features, benefits and coverage options to promote insurance plans optimally suited to customer needs.

Client service is regarded as a key factor behind ABC Corporation’s success as one of the nation’s premier insurance agencies. Let’s discuss how my commitment to the customer experience would add value to your winning team. Please call me at (555) 555-5555 to set up an interview.
