Dear Mr. Bhdxn,
In a recent conversation with Lance Wvhgq, I learned that you are conducting a search for a new VP of Sales. Lance is a longtime colleague of mine from the IT Association who, I believe, also knows you through my previous employer, OptiBand.
As we enter the first quarter of the new year, I am prepared to put all my energy into your new business development program, which I understand has been very successful to date. I have experience using a similar methodology at OptiBand, where we achieved significant increases in market share, both regionally and nationally.
Here are a few of my achievements from my last three positions:
- At OptiBand, built a 187-person sales organization operating at 184% of plan year-to-date, compared to a $40M booking target for a Griffin Henley-founded startup providing communication services to commercial accounts.
- At Brotherhood Investment Group, collaboratively established a telecommunications organization that operated profitably at $50M per year, billing 6,000 sites in 41 cities.
- At Capital Investors, attained 300% of planned sales in the first year, 600% in the second year, and 725% in the third.
I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss IT ScaleUp's sales goals for this and the next five years. I am available for an interview at your convenience. I look forward to your call.
