“Over my 30 years in sales leadership I have had the privilege to lead multiple high performance sales teams.  During this time I have participated in five exits that have driven over 5 billion in value.  I have participated in two successful early stage companies where revenue was at ground zero I and I help them to grow to 50M plus businesses.  I view sales leadership as more a science than an art and have always treated it that way.  The most successful sales leaders put in the work to study the craft.”

Coming from a variety of technology backgrounds has afforded me the opportunity to see a lot of the consistent challenges professionals are experiencing. It is a lot of fun working with talented professionals who are trying to identify their next career move, and to be a part of that is extremely rewarding.”
