Curt is currently the VP of Sales Development for a $1.4 billion Houston based industrial distributor, DXP, located in the Houston area. I’ve created several new classes and have rolled them out starting in 2014. I held 14 classes consisting of an off-site 2-day program plus a 9-week coaching program. 178 sales reps went through that in 2014. I also held 20 other training programs through out the US and Canada. Over 300 people attended these combined classes and the first year roll out was a massive success.
Curt has introduced a new HTML based marketing program, co-developed a “Web Store” for Shell, and developed the DXP Sales University. The Sales University is a 2-day sales course, focused on presentation skills, handling objections, and further developing the skills of the entire sales organization. Held quarterly, this 2-day course is highly esteemed. Invitation by the Regional Vice President only.
In the past 6 years, the sales and his responsibilities have increased. From $47 million when he first started to $73 million through 2010, hard work and strong leadership have been Curt’s attributes. Now, for 2011, Curt has a $96 million budget and a challenging economy. Here is where leadership takes action.read less
