The specialists may be responsible for:

  • Active engagement with the prospects from identification through on-boarding
  • Maintaining and expanding existing client relationships
  • Assisting in developing new products
  • Developing a broad and deep understanding of the prospects’ needs and challenges and working to meet those needs by leveraging the capabilities of the entire organization
  • Understanding the assigned markets’ reporting, regulatory, guideline and servicing requirements
  • Playing a key role in coordinating teams across Galliard for new business responses and presentations
