Voted one of the most Influential Inside Sales Professionals by The American Association of Inside Sales Professionals, Mike is recognized as a leader in the industry.

Mike started his career in the financial and securities industry and quickly became the top producer out of 5 branch offices in Southern California. Promoted to Executive Vice President of Sales, he developed a Top 20% Inside Sales Training program that doubled corporate sales of private placements from 27 million a year to over 58 million in 1988, and then more than doubled that again in 1989 – total revenue over 112 million.
Since that time Mike has consulted with business owners in many different industries, and his experience has proven that the 80/20 rule applies to all sales teams regardless of industry and, moreover, that once sales reps and managers learn and apply best practice Top 20% techniques and strategies, their sales performance (and morale) immediately improves.
