Open Positions


Account Manager, Senior Living
Minneapolis, MN

Henricksen is seeking a self-motivated, organized, creative, energetic, and experienced representative to join our Senior Living team.

The Account Manager position is a direct report to the Director of our Senior Living Group and is the “right hand” of the Director. The Account Manager is responsible for taking care of our larger “partner” clients and making sure the day-to-day projects inside their existing sites are managed. The successful candidate will work closely with the client corporate teams to write yearly budgets for their sites as well as being the site contact for smaller sized projects. The roles of this position look different day-in and day-out, and requires handling multiple projects at a given time.

While the Account Manager is not 100% commission based compensation, there is a sales incentive for this position which includes a base plus commission structure. It is a full-time position with light travel to rural areas, but very little overnight travel required.
