    Responsibilities

    The global revenue management team supports revenue and profit growth by setting a value-driven price strategy, by partnering with Sales and other functions to lead pricing decisions, and by identifying price growth opportunities through customer discussions and data analytics. Innovation is critical to our survival, as growth slows in our core business storage markets.  We have invested over $1.5 billion in our Data Centers business over the past 18 months as we launch a new service to our hundreds of thousands of business customers.

    • Pricing tools – developing standard tools to establish a target price for individual customer transactions, based on differential customer value and peer pricing trends, with clear approval rules and processes; dashboards to build negotiating stories; and reporting tools to measure performance and identify opportunities

    This role is an important part of our commitment to excellence in revenue management and our ability to deliver sustained annual profit growth.  This also offers an opportunity to work with general managers and stakeholders across our global organization, and with customers in the arts and entertainment industries. The role works with a high-performing global revenue management team, recognized by executives and Wall Street as one of the keys to Iron Mountain’s success.  Key stakeholders include Sales, through which deals are priced and executed, Finance as a source of performance data, IT as we design and implement new pricing tools, Marketing as we identify sources of customer value and growth strategies, HR as we develop training and reward measures, Communications as we build value-based messaging, and other executives across the organization.
