A 15+ year veteran in software sales who has a successful track record in North America and Worldwide. My teams have successfully sold solutions to both IT and business executives. I have gained a wide breadth of knowledge from my experience while at Acquia, Telligent, Oracle, BEA and Plumtree. Due to consistently over achieving against expectations, I have attained and performed varied responsibilities in positions ranging from Inside Sales, Direct and Indirect Sales, Sales Management and General Management. As a result of my experience, I have been able to develop very strong strategic sales management techniques, which have directly contributed to my teams consistent over achievement of targets and objectives. I am now applying this in a more dynamic/strategic role, while still being very ‘hands on’ and leading from the front.
