Open to Work / Pursuing a New Challenge

Good day!

I am currently seeking my next challenge with a growing company. I am an accomplished sales and marketing professional in Atlanta, Georgia with 25 years in the IT and telecom industries.  As you can see from my resume, I have extensive solution selling and channel sales experience with a track record of success. If your organization is in need of a motivated and experienced sales professional, do not hesitate to contact me

I believe I could be a great asset to your organization.  Some highlights:

As the Strategic Partnerships Director for OfficeRnD, I grew the roster of referral and reseller partners from zero to over 60 in a year and a half.  I also executed four major integration partnerships.

As a Strategic Sales Representative with PDI Technologies (then ControlScan), I won the Above and Beyond Award for Q3 2020.

As a Software Sales Representative for IBM (2010 – 2016), I won the IBM Global Sales Leadership Award for Q2 2015, the IBM Sales Eminence Award for FY 2014, and the IBM Business Unit Executive Award for Q2 2012.

As a Channel Sales Manager for EarthLink (2006-2009), I increased monthly subscribers from an outbound telemarketing partner over 400% within my first four months on the account.  I also increased monthly premium subscribers from an inbound telemarketing partner over 200% within the first two months of handling the account.  

As a Channel Sales Manager for SkyTel (now Verizon Business) (2003 – 2006), I was responsible for 45% of all units in service through the indirect channel.

As the Program Manager for the Business Development Center (2001 – 2003), I doubled the usage of IBM’s online inventory application in less than a year.  I also exceeded the deployment target of IBM Learning Service’s online purchasing tool by 20% and created marketing materials and launched a successful sales contest despite funding constraints. Additionally,  I completed IBM Sales Leadership Development Program (LDP).  The LDP was a year-long training and education program designed to cultivate formal leadership skills in selected employees.

The Key to a Successful Hybrid Work Transition: Intentional Collaboration [Upcoming Webinar]

Managing a successful hybrid work model is a balancing act. You need to satisfy both company and employee needs.

As a good leader, you must deeply care about employee engagement and productivity. For that, you have to find the right balance between face-to-face collaboration and having focused time alone at home. But, how does one achieve all that?

You need to develop workplace policies that encourage in-person collaboration and ensure a healthy split between working from home and working from the office.

The first step in making hybrid work a success requires tools that enable employees not only to adhere to those policies, but also see the value in them.

How to Simplify Hybrid Work

The great transition to hybrid work is in full swing. 

Tech giants like Amazon, Meta, and Microsoft as well as many other big and small businesses are now embracing hybrid as their primary mode of work.

However, the transition hasn’t been easy.

Companies are struggling to answer many hybrid work questions, including:

  • How do you transition smoothly from remote or office work to hybrid?
  • What will hybrid work’s impact be on company culture?
  • Do you implement a schedule for the entire company or do you let everyone decide when to come to the office?

The bad news is that there’s no one-size-fits all solution to hybrid work.

The good news is that we just released a new eBook that can help you set the foundation and optimize your hybrid workplace.

Here are a few of the things you can find in it:

  • Real-world examples of hybrid work models & schedules.
