“Chris gets sales! I had the pleasure of working directly with Chris for 3 years. I witnessed his ability to quickly size-up a strategic sales plan for his organization, smartly identify the sales tools, sales training, and marketing materials needed to equip his team and effectively lead and coach his large sales department to implement the plan. Chris is a high-caliber executive. Plus, he is a great guy to work with and to have as part of any organization.”
“Dean is a dedicated, visionary leader who combines excellent business acumen with very strong leadership skills. Dean has consistently overachieved his results, delivered the highest employee satisfaction ratings, and always viewed as the de facto go-to leader. I would highly recommend Dean to any organization looking for a polished and seasoned leader who WILL drive top performance.”
David Ruggiero , Global Commercial Leader, Polycom
“Dean was VP of Sales for my software company for over a year. In that time, he installed a repeatable sales process, trained my sales team, redefined our sales strategy, and enabled us to get on a growth trajectory for the future. I would recommend 360 Consulting for any organization needing help in streamlining sales process and sustaining that growth for the future.”
Mickey Shah, CEO, Innowera
Chris spent a year with us at ABGI and we were able to make big strides in our sales organization. Before working with Chris we had no success finding and keeping sales reps and we weren’t getting the new customers we needed to truly grow our business. Chris was able to build the right recruiting, compensation plans, onboarding training and sales process management for us to succeed. He became a key member of our leadership team in the process. We now have 2 successful new business representatives, are adding new customers and we hired our first ever Sales Manager. We would have never had the confidence to make these bold moves before working with Chris and 360 Consulting.
