A background in Software solution selling
Management of a sales team
Evidence of leading and closing enterprise sales
Vision: someone who is able to look well ahead and be a good forecaster, and who also considers future opportunities and problems
Creativity: generates ideas frequently and is always working out ways and means of “doing it better.”
Planning and organising: writes objectives and plans in detail how they will be attained. Able to anticipate problems and outline how they will be overcome
Judgement: Having analysed the available information in a given situation, they must then judicially weigh the evidence in order to decide on the best course of action. Most decisions involve a balance of advantages and disadvantages, and so they should be comfortable with trade offs.

Ability to Get Things Done: A good objective setter, planner, and above all, controller. Instead of leaving loose ends hanging, they always finish what they start.
Analytical ability: Sales managers receive all kinds of information — from verifiable facts to rumors. It is important to be able to see the relevance of these bits of information, to draw conclusions that fit the facts, and to analyse a problem to understand root causes.
Initiative: A self-starter able to work with minimum direction. In addition, a good sales manager possesses both the desire and the ability to develop constructive ideas
Ability to Develop the team: Practice what they preach and show their direct reports the benefits of reading, analysing, practicing, and improving.
Problem Solving: A positive thinker who can quickly pinpoint problems, come up with solutions, and get the action going.
