24 Jan Who are the best individual SaaS sales contributors?
Who are the 50 best individual SaaS sales contributors in the UK? Do you know one of them? Maybe you’re one of them? Sales Confidence are on a quest to find the best.
In December 2017 we released our inaugural list of the Top 50 SaaS Sales Leaders in the UK. Did you see it? It was a huge success, surpassing all our expectations. We received more than 250 nominations for the list and our judges had to make some very tough decisions.
Eventually, our judges decided that our winner was Peter Crosby from Triptease. The rest of the Top 10 was made up of leaders from:
· App Dynamics
· Just Eat
· Pager Duty
· Bazaar Voice
Sales Confidence is a movement championing the UK SaaS industry. As well as focusing on Sales Leaders, it’s only natural that we have a look at future leaders in the industry too. As a result, we’re looking for current sales talent, individuals who are at the top of their game, salespeople who are overachieving against every metric.
We’re looking for Account Executives, Enterprise Relationship Managers, Account Managers. Essentially, we want anyone within a SaaS business who has a quota to reach.
We don’t mind lone wolves, but we mainly want to see sales talent whose impact is felt by everyone in their organisation. We want to be able to look at this list in 5 or 10 years’ time and say that we were right, these people were special.
