Accomplished Sales Executive with a strong track record of accelerating revenue growth at technology growth firms, with success in enabling four companies to achieve successful exits through acquisition. Very skilled in building sales strategies and teams to introduce new concepts to markets, and in selling SaaS solutions to change client buying habits in traditional markets. Excellent track record in hiring, training, and motivating sales teams, and working to develop effective multi-channel sales distribution.
Achieved rapid growth in short time spans and helped to enable successful company exits at Net Effect Systems (acquired by Ask.com) and Sendia (acquired by Salesforce.com).
Joined a re-start at Mobile Automation, and built the team that led the firm to acquisition (by iPass), with minimal resources and in a very competitive marketplace.
Developed sales strategies and built sales teams at Everbridge and Perfect Market, leading companies through rapid revenue growth and leadership positions in their respective markets - introducing SaaS solutions to both markets, and successful expansion into International markets.
Throughout my career, I have helped to introduce many new product and service concepts into a variety of markets - bringing significant change to the processes and personnel at many organizations. My ability to adapt and learn new technologies and concepts is exceptional, and I have consistently met the challenge of determining the best strategies and tactics to attack markets and introduce change.
I have significant experience in hiring, training, and motivating sales teams and enjoy working with the team to produce great results.
