As a result of almost 20 years of experience in sales, including technical and software sales in high volume and high quota calling environments, I have excelled in cold calling as well as sourcing quality leads. This implementation has produced an intelligent balance between high contact ratios and quality interactions that result in greater percentages of actual closings per contact.
Through tenacity and persistence, I have excelled naturally and easily in sales for all of my life. Experience has shown that my most successful method of sales acquisition has been to listen aptly to each client. Giving each client my full attention allows me to address specific benefits and solutions to the problems that they themselves have expressed and acknowledged.
