About Us

Helping businesses overachieve their sales goals is our passion. To make this happen, we know we need to deliver the truth about your sales model, even if that means looking you in the eye and plainly telling you that what you’re doing is hindering your sales efforts. We take success personally. We perform like our own livelihood depends on your sales success and we want to see you succeed.

After 20-year careers in sales executive roles, we decided to pursue our true passion and founded 360 Consulting. Our mission is to help companies transform their sales teams and processes to achieve all-time sales records. It’s what gets us up in the morning; learn more about our team and mission below.
