Hanover’s revenue teams build and sustain our growth. Hanover is a top 50 firm and one of the fastest growing companies both in the market research industry and the D.C. metro area. We attribute this growth to the unique flexibility of our business model, and the skill with which the revenue teams engage senior client contacts in leveraging this model to address their key business needs.

The Sales team secures new clients, while the Account Management team ensures the long-term success of these client relationships. Revenue team members begin as Associates, serving as the first point of contact with decision makers. Directors deepen this relationship by uncovering pressing challenges and presenting strategies for applying research to solve these issues. Roles on the revenue teams are dynamic and fast-paced, ideal for a self-starter looking to play a critical role in Hanover’s continued growth.

A lot of the smaller colleges with whom we work face limited resources and are tuition-dependent. When Hanover provides them with actionable data and analysis that allows them to solve a problem, I see the magnitude of the impact we’re making. I love getting feedback like, ‘I don’t know how we could have done this without you,’ and ‘This means a lot to our planning committee.’ And that happens a lot.

Account Manager and Relationship Director



Ensure service excellence. Account Managers and Relationship Directors support the needs of existing clients and conduct renewal and relationship-expansion conversations with senior-level decision makers across the enterprise, education, and healthcare sectors. Directors are responsible for managing their product team toward the achievement of overall revenue retention goals, and for working with the Content team to optimize project delivery.

As an Account Manager, I maintain long-term partnerships with my clients across a wide number of industries to intimately understand their business and provide meaningful solutions that address their challenges. In this role, I am always excited to hear when clients identified ROI as a direct result of a certain report or insight gleaned from a project.

My K-12 sales team continuously discusses and shares practices, ideas, programs, and initiatives that are in place or are being established to improve our nation’s public education system and ultimately increase student learning gains. My role represents the forefront of where Hanover is currently, and is the pathway for the direction we are going with K-12.
