As a sales professional, throughout my career I have always been passionate about building
relationships and adopting new concepts that better myself, my company and my client’s
During this time, I have had the privilege of working alongside talented individuals at major
companies, such as Staples and ADP, in various offices throughout North America.
I now work at LinkedIn, as a Sales Solutions Account Executive, in New York City. As of July
2013, LinkedIn passed the 238 million members mark, and we continue to add members at a
rate of two members every second! We continue to strive to connect the world’s professionals,
making them more productive and successful.
LinkedIn Sales Solutions affords me the opportunity to work with sales organizations to share
how social selling can generate sales opportunities that otherwise may have gone unnoticed.
Social selling changes the game by allowing users the ability to discover the sales insight
necessary for a sales organization to effectively engage prospects and close deals. This is
made possible by leveraging LinkedIn’s flagship product, “Sales Navigator.”
My areas of expertise include: B2B sales, prospecting, lead generation and relationship
building, focusing on the mid-market space.
