What gets you out of bed in the morning? For me... Making things better is what I love to do, with a relentless focus on leaving it better than I found it. Specifically, these 2 key areas: ► Executive Sales and CS search for early-stage SaaS startups ► Coaching founders through my proven framework to help them create their hiring system. Let's be real. The startup hiring status quo is BEGGING for an overhaul! Recruiting isn’t one-dimensional, and the bots haven't taken over, so why are we treating it this way? The table stakes are high. Hiring the wrong sales leader for your startup is a 7-figure+ problem with lasting, painful effects. With turnover nearly 3X more than any other field and an average tenure of 16 - 24 months for sales leaders in tech, don't you think it's time for a change? It’s not all doom and gloom. I’ve cracked the code! Simply put, this is my life's work. I've seen a thing or two, learned a thing or two, messed up a thing or two, and know EXACTLY how to translate this knowledge to fix the broken bits and pieces to get it right for all parties involved... the first time around. It's no secret that I'm passionate about sales, CS, and startups. With a 20+ year startup and enterprise sales career and over $100MM in closed revenue to prove it, I walk my talk. A business is the sum of its parts. The bots haven't taken over, and the only way to scale a business is through its people. Wrong people = Wrong work = Bad pipeline = No customer = No business A common misconception is that all sales leaders are created equal. NOTHING could be further from the truth. Helping high-growth SaaS startups get hiring right is my 'why'. The power of discovery has treated me well, and I use that to go above and beyond to deliver results with a concentration on white-glove experience. After all, that's what it takes to attract the cream of the sales crop that will stick around for the long haul. All in, I'm equal parts executive recruiter, coach, sales consultant, and therapist.
