PeopleFluent’s Bright Lights: Meet Cameron Husain, Enterprise Account Executive
As part of our employee spotlight series, we’re introducing you to key PeopleFluent team members. This time, we’re chatting with Cameron Husain, Enterprise Account Executive at PeopleFluent. When he’s not working, Cameron stays busy caring for his new baby and enjoying the great outdoors. Let’s get to know him!
Thanks for chatting with us, Cameron! So, what’s your role at PeopleFluent?
I’m an Enterprise Account Executive and pride myself on working collaboratively with new and existing customers to help solve their business's unique challenges with HR tech.
Before PeopleFluent, what did you do for work?
I’ve been working with PeopleFluent since graduating from college, and I got my start in the marketing department. The first team that I worked with was excellent. We had so much fun partnering with the sales team to create content for new and existing customers.
After about a year in marketing, I was encouraged by some of my mentors to explore a career in sales. That led me to take on a new role as an Account Manager supporting our existing customers. At a young age, I had the opportunity to partner with some of the largest businesses in the world. It’s always been so rewarding to find mutual success and to strengthen a partnership.
I fell in love with this role because our customers are so great to work with. PeopleFluent has supported my career growth and mobility, allowing me to try many things, including my current position. I have a pretty good idea of where I want to go in my career thanks to PeopleFluent’s supportive environment.
What skills are needed to be successful in your role?
It’s really important to be consultative. When we’re working with people who are buying software, they don’t always come in knowing what internal processes need to take place before they can move forward in choosing a software solution. Understanding how to navigate those processes and help clients champion the solution in their organization is what makes my job both difficult and fun. It’s all about our shared success.
Before meeting with potential clients, I spend time learning about their business and come to our first meetings prepared to listen to the problems their business is facing.
From there, I share what makes PeopleFluent a great business to partner with based on how we can help them achieve their strategic goals.

What’s your favorite aspect of your job?
I’m really passionate about problem-solving. I love taking a complex problem that a large business is experiencing, honing in on how a new or different approach to solve that problem can impact the business, and then presenting a creative solution.
For me, the overall goal is to improve the employee experience. It’s really fun helping businesses see how software can make their employees happier and how that can positively impact their business.
How would you describe your team dynamic?
I absolutely love when I get to work with my friends in Product, Support, Professional Services, Legal, or IT. As an individual contributor, I coordinate with members of other departments to do what’s best for our new or existing clients. We collaborate, help each other where we can, and have a shared goal to create an excellent buying or customer experience.
What’s your favorite work perk?
Working from home is definitely my favorite perk. PeopleFluent has always been very friendly to remote workers, even prior to 2020. It’s great because I’m able to live the life I want—where I want—without being tied to a specific office location.
What are you doing when you’re not at your desk?
Well, I’m a new dad, so a lot of time is spent with our baby girl Sawyer.
I’m also an avid outdoorsman—skiing, hiking, mountain biking, camping, and pretty much anything else that would fall under that category. My family and I like to spend as much time as we can at the trailhead and traveling.
What advice do you have for others?
Be curious and listen. Ask open-ended questions, and really listen to the way people answer. You’ll wind up with engaging dialogue, and you’ll build trust with whoever you’re talking to.
Also, if you haven't already, I highly recommend reading How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. This book changed my life.
