Article I found a new word in the above article.
Pre-sales manager

From what I read in this article, it might be a merchandising manager.
Is this usage of presales common in English-speaking countries?
I think so

I've never heard that term.

Thank you all!
I have no idea but It may be so new a term that natives have never heard of it or may be not. It's somewhat interesting that it is used (quite a lot) in ads in Kuala Lumpur.
If I encountered the situation where I had to understand this term, I'd remember Marius said I think so.
MH - can you include the parts that actually show what these duties ARE? The fact that it's apparently used doesn't change the fact that I've never heard it, so I'd be curious to see what a pre-sales manager actually does.
