When you meet a new team for the first time, emphasize your value, not your function.
“Hi, I’m XYZ. I’m the key accounts manager,” may sound cool but it doesn’t reveal what you bring to the team. Include your skills and experience so the others know you’re going to be an asset. Example: “I have 12 years’ retail experience and, for the last five years, I’ve been working closely with major clients. I’ll be focused on making the relationship with our majors work to the max for both parties. I’m keen to learn from you all and to share some of my own experiences. Thanks for accepting me into the team.”
