Executive Sales Recruiting

A True Software Sales Recruiting Partner

One of the biggest myths we hear in the market comes down to beliefs. That you have to be a well-branded company to:

  • Recruit top sales talent

  • Bring in F500 clients

  • Beat the well-known “leaders” in the space

We have almost 20 years of recruiting experience that proves otherwise. We’ve placed sales talent that’s

  • Brought in HUNDREDS of F1000 companies like eBay, Amazon, Starbucks, AT&T, etc…and started landing them when the company was 50 people and growing. (They’ve never quit growing and today you’d easily recognize their name.)

  • Won MM deals for companies with around 70-100 employees with virtually zero marketing budget.

  • Beat out well-known market “leaders” in the space by hiring salespeople who KNOW their solutions are just as good if not better than the competition.

With more than 250+ successful sales placements and a focus on the sales function, we can help you find the sales talent you WANT to hire. We’ve recruited hundreds of top-notch sales professionals for our software and technology sales clients.

Guaranteed Results

If you’re like most of our clients, when you’re ready to work together, you’re already behind the eight ball. But since we’re recruiting sales professionals every day, we won’t be starting your search from scratch. With more than a decade of focused sales recruiting, we have developed professional networks that help us cut search time by as much as 52%.

Tech Sales Recruitment Is Our Only Focus

We’re not all things to our software and technology clients. When one of our clients asks us to recruit for a product marketing role or a customer service manager, we have the discipline to stick to our area of expertise: the sales function.

We recruit primary for Sales Hunters–the people who win new business, Font-line Sales Leaders, and Sales Engineers–the folks who work hard to achieve the “technical-close”.

Experienced Sales Recruiters

Why does experience matter? With more than a decade of sales recruitment experience, we’ve learned to see potential problems before they materialize. We’ve been able to help our clients avoid wasting time with the following outcomes

  • Sales candidates who are not truly interested in making a move

  • Sales professionals who are highly likely to take a counteroffer

  • Applicants who don’t truly have the skills, motivation, or competencies to meet your hiring criteria

High-Impact Sales Talent Recruitment and Selection

Sales talent is selected and referred based on the hiring criteria you’ve formulated. In addition to the initial skill match, we focus on a collaborative approach to target the kind of sales talent you need to meet your hiring objectives. We take a holistic approach to the sales recruitment process to identify, attract, engage, and recruit the best sales talent in the market to meet your short and long term sales hiring goals.
