Sales, Account Executive
For more than 20 years I have driven sales growth and consistently exceeded performance goals for technology companies serving Healthcare and LifeSciences, Fortune 1000, SMB and government organizations. I build rapport with prospects, identify their needs and desired business outcomes, and align them to proprietary and third-party products, including hardware, software, networking, Cybersecurity, Managed Services and cloud solutions. My ability to resolve major customer satisfaction issues has helped save failing relationships by improving project management and communications practices. I have extensive experience in Cloud (IaaS PaaS and SaaS), On Premise and Hybrid technology environments, and am proficient in the use of all the major CRM (Salesforce, Siebel, Hubspot, etc) and office productivity (MS Office, Google G-Suite) tools.
My focus is on achieving results that are mutually beneficial to customers, team members, and my company. I follow a solution sales methodology, developed through formal training by Sandler, Miller Heiman, IBM Global Sales School and others. Highlights from my 20+-year career include the following:
Grew Monthly Recurring (MRR) and Project Revenue for Secure Networks, upselling and cross selling services and solutions from the network to application layers.
