Recruit & Hire Sales Hunters

Missing Out on New Business?

Recruiting Hunters are the Key to Winning More New Business 


Our specialty is recruiting sales talent who knows how to proactively win new business. Our recruitment solutions focus on discovering the kind of sales talent who will help you exceed your quota.

We can help you find the kind of salespeople who know how to drive interest, start new conversations, and solve complex problems.

The kind of people who can get prospective customers to make tough decisions and implement changes that will drive their businesses forward.

When we recruit for hunters, we’re looking for sales candidates who:

  • Understand how to proactively target prospects.
  • Use ALL channels: phone, email, and social media to prospecting for new business.
  • They are motivated and consistent in their new business acquisition strategies.
  • Adaptable, flexible, and constantly iterating sales processes based on what’s working and what’s not.
  • Have a history of winning new business using a sales methodology rather than “winging it.”

All-Star Hunters are Playing a Different Game

Your sales team can be one of your strongest competitive advantages. But if it ever becomes a weak link, it will be impossible to attain the growth you need to attract capital, potential suitors, or influential executive talent.  

Avoid sales recruiting pitfalls by working with an experienced team. We’ve already taken 20 years of bullets so you don’t have to. 

Hire Right for the Role

Hiring an Account Manager or a Channel Rep is not what you need when you’re looking for a hunter. We know how to tell the difference.

Eager to Sell?

Sometimes, salespeople lose their mojo and think moving to another company might be the answer. Perhaps they’ve missed their quota one too many times. A new company will provide them with a fresh start and restart the quota clock.

Looking for an Exit

Most hunters eventually lose their enthusiasm for the role. It’s fun for a while, and then they want to manage reps, work strategic accounts, minimize travel, or move into another department. This can be easy to overlook because it’s nuanced. We can help you avoid hiring those on the way out.

Scrappy or Context Reliant?

We know how to weed out the lucky from the scrappy. Elite hunters can’t rely on multiple SDRs, inbound leads, $$MM marketing budgets, house accounts, favoritism, and hot markets.
