Testimonials

"John, Fantastic to work with you over the past year. Your experience and knowledge have been instrumental in revising and structuring our revenue team. As we continue our expansion, we have a stronger foundation to build upon. I look forward to our continued friendship, wish you all the best and happily recommend your services for anyone needing to build or revise their revenue department(s)."

- Eric Brooks---Branding Merchandise

"John and I worked together on an engagement at The Ulven Companies where I was tasked with turnaround/family transition. I brought John in as an Interim VP of Sales... The sales group was struggling and their processes" consisted of relying solely on charisma and legacy relationships. John brought in the structure and strategy the group needed to be successful! He was different from other consultants in that he took full ownership right away, including pushing back on other executives and company owners. John didn't simply bring a canned process for everyone to follow; he selected tools and techniques that suited our unique situation. John's efforts were key in our turnaround of the company. This quote is telling... I asked a member of the sales team about John and they replied "We can do our day-to-day job without John, but I can see now that we will never really improve without him helping"

- Ian Itschner---The Ulven Companies

"Straightforward, no nonsense sales leader who can help organizations get back on track with building out a sales team, setting clear objectives and metrics for measuring future success."

- Jeni Billups---Oregon Freeze Dry

"John Lee has a keen sense of what is missing, in a sales organization, that when added will produce the results management has wanted to see and did not know how to make the shifts necessary to achieve those results."

- Brian Corekin---Monster Fuse
