Day in the Life of an Account Executive
Meet Kristina Hogins, Senior Enterprise Account Executive for Cox Business.
Hi Kristina! Tell me a little bit about your background and what led you to your current job.
I was born in Anchorage, AK and moved a lot growing up. I spent time in Orange County, North Carolina, and Sacramento. I moved to San Diego in 2005 to attend San Diego State University. I have planted my roots in San Diego (the weather and amazing people kept me here) and I call it home! I began my telecom sales career at a small company. They were hiring young college graduates willing to work hard and cold call 50 businesses a day. These skills allowed me to start a career in sales with Cox Business. I began as a Territory Rep and have worked my way up the chain by becoming a Mid-Market rep and now a Senior Enterprise Rep. This proves Cox Business believes in its employees and helps us grow and achieve our goals.
What do you enjoy most about your job? How do you spend your time when you’re not at work?
I enjoy the people I work with! We have an outstanding team that works together and delivers to our customers when they rely on us most. I’m proud to say I work at Cox Business, San Diego because of the people I’m surrounded by!
When I’m not at work you can find me traveling or doing something active outside. This seems cliché but when you live in San Diego and the weather is always perfect you have to enjoy it. I love going to the beach, hiking, taking my Rottweiler (Max) to the dog park, and being social with friends. I got married 3 months ago (December 2017) and my husband and I went to Singapore and Bali for our Honeymoon. I love trying new foods, meeting new people, and exploring other cultures.
How has Cox supported you in your career growth?
Cox Business has always supported me in my career growth. They have sponsored networking groups and lead generating activities. All my managers and directors have an open-door policy so if I need coaching or advice they are always available to help.
