Ernst Pollen

KR Group, Inc.
Santa Monica, CA, United States
Application for the position of Business Development Officer

Dear Head of Human Resources,

As an energetic, people-driven Business Development Officer with 3 years of experience in financial services and wealth management, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I am currently a Business Development Officer at BERSY, Inc., where my role mirrors your requirements, In particular, I:

  • Identify and create sales opportunities; I routinely smash my target by 200% +
  • Cross-sell/up-sell products and services; I generated $475K in additional revenue in 2019 (target $100K)
  • Create proposals and manage customer acquisitions/onboarding (550 customers in 2019, target 200)

Rather than aggressively pursue prospects, my approach is to foster and expand relationships by truly understanding what each customer needs, and educating them on how products and services can genuinely enhance their life. I am often praised for my non-pushy and caring approach, which organically leads to a huge number of customer referrals.

In addition to my professional experience, I hold a Bachelor of Business Administration and have attended numerous courses on business development, customer acquisition & retention, and responsible sales leadership. I have an excellent reputation for my negotiation, communication, and relationship management skills, alongside outstanding attention to detail and task prioritization.

I have loved every minute of my time at BERSY, and developed some amazing client relationships there. As the company plans to close its Santa Monica office and focus on its San Francisco head office following the recent global pandemic, I am now seeking another stimulating opportunity with an organization whose mission and products I truly admire.

Please find attached my resume for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours faithfully,

Ernst Pollen
