About Me

I’ve delivered growth for years across all situations, including turnarounds, resulting in 2x, 3x, and even 5x sales growth. I work fast and focus on optimizing limited resources while implementing an efficient sales process that removes barriers so your team can focus on delivering results!

As President of Strategic Elevation, I’m able to leverage 30+ years of sales, marketing, and business development experience to help small- to medium-sized B2B clients achieve profitable sales growth. Before founding Strategic Elevation, I led sales organizations primarily in the Global Technology and Energy space. My experience spans both public and private companies, ranging from Fortune 50 enterprises to small PE-backed startups. I’ve been responsible for sales quotas ranging from $50-$450 million. I have closed deals worldwide, including a few highly structured agreements with some of Chicago’s most prominent organizations, such as the City of Chicago, the University of Chicago, and the Chicago Cubs. I’ve also been responsible for establishing outbound call center sales teams that could close thousands of deals per month. Large-company experience, coupled with my strong entrepreneurial drive, allows me to successfully develop and quickly implement practical, realistic sales plans that work. I enjoy partnering with business owners interested in building high-performance sales teams focused on accelerating top-line growth.
