Erin McDaniel

Account Executive SAP Concur

Hi! I’m Erin McDaniel, I have been with SAP Concur for almost 5 years now—I truly consider it home! I started my career here as a Client Sales Specialist, and have climbed up the ranks to a Strategic Account Executive. When I’m not building relationships with my clients, and bringing in revenue, I love spending time with my little family consisting of my husband Colin, and sweet Yorkie, Kirk (team small dog!). A couple of fun facts, I’m an avid reader of the fantasy genre, and I never cook the same recipe twice!
