The Field Marketing Manager will build regional marketing plans that align corporate demand generation programs and the budgets, capabilities, and skills of our top partners to scale the pipeline. This role must have a bias towards action and use data to make decisions.  


Collaboration with Enterprise East field sales leaders is critical. While global campaigns will deliver pipeline, this role is accountable for local execution to make up the difference and exceed pipeline coverage targets for the region. The field marketing manager must provide feedback to the corporate campaign leaders to guide those programs to maximize pipeline creation in the region and has the authority to accept or decline if/when global programs land in the region. 


While this role has an impact across all regional marketing initiatives, the key area of orchestration this role will lead is for account-based marketing with target accounts and customers.  Working hand in hand with the business development team, the field marketing manager will be integral to the execution of account plans and engagement cadences.
