: hi,, i'd like to know if there's a difference between "head of acquisitions' and 'sales manager'?

: Thank you so much !

Unless there is really a lot that either you or they have failed to tell us, there is a big difference. A sales manager sells things, a head of acquisitions buys them. Well, not the same things, but things. The head of acquisitions sees that things are acquired, not necessarily by purchase, from sources outside the company; the sales manager sells things which the company makes or to which it has access. A "head of acquisitions" is a job you'll often find in a library, but presumably also in any organization that needs to acquire things. Libraries don't have sales managers, however. SS
