Good analytical skills. Be able to hear 200 individual pieces of information. Discard the 175 that have no bearing, and then tie the 25 pieces together into a compiling decision/path forward.

Patience: Not everything happens at the speed you would like. Push hard, don’t be afraid to voice your position, but know when to be patient. For this job you have to have an honest and real feel for customers. Who they are, what they want, where they buy, how much they spend, this allows you to target their needs better. The classic win/win, customer gets their needs fulfilled better and your company has a winning product.

Enterprising?
Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.
