About Us

We created SalesSmyth because we knew there had to be a better way to build distribution organizations for technical businesses.  We’re sales and marketing leaders, so we’ve seen firsthand the effects of building a team or program by the seat of your pants: higher burn rates, lower valuations, and less control over the future of your company.  So we ask ourselves the question that drives us, “What can we do to help technical entrepreneurs build high performing revenue programs that lead to explosive growth?”  We are on a mission to deliver torrents of revenue by designing, training, and equipping technical distribution teams to do their very best work.

SalesSmyth is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
