I am an experienced Sales Professional, who has the ability to lead, compete and win. I consider myself an expert at assessing the opportunity, asking the right questions and building trust with a prospective client. I thrive on helping my clients succeed by recommending solutions that will fit their needs. I derive much satisfaction from playing hard, competing and having fun while doing my job.

My greatest accomplishment has come from leading sales teams, who energetically compete to win over a client and succeed through hard work and determined sales presentations. It is from this vantage point that I am seeking to lead a team of professional salespeople, and contributing to the success of the business.
