Sales Partnerships Wins Gold Medal, Four Other Awards in 2015 Stevie Awards

Westminster, Colo – March, 4, 2015 – Sales Partnerships congratulates our outsourced field sales team for winning a Gold Medal at the 2015 Stevie Awards. Sales Partnerships’ Sales Director, Eugene Higby was on hand to accept the award. Sales Partnerships also won a Silver Medal for Sales Consulting Practice of the Year and Higby was awarded a Bronze Medal for Sales Manager of the Year. The Stevie award show was held in Las Vegas on Friday, Feb. 27, 2015.

“I am very pleased with the five awards we received this year. Building field sales organizations is our business, so taking first place in the country is quite an honor,” said Sales Partnerships’ CEO, Fred Kessler.

Sales Partnerships received Silver awards for Sales Consulting Practice of the Year and Top Rep in America and Bronze awards for Top Sales Director of the Year and Top Outsourcing Firm in America.

The Gold medal win was for an innovative sales program that helped the client increase their sales 400% through commercial channels by improving sales training and sales management tactics. Sales staff were trained extensively in both product information and sales skills and were positioned as brand ambassadors for a breakthrough energy technology.

“The quality and quantity of submissions for the 2015 Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service were robust. Entries have more than doubled over the past three years and the 2015 winners achieved the highest ratings in the history of the awards,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “We congratulate Fred and the Sales Partnerships’ team, on their commitment to sales and customer service innovation and performance.”

Besides sales growth, our client’s main contact with SPI’s Gold medal winning sales team, reported that he was very impressed with how seamless our team integrated with internal processes and staff, a key strength in Sales Partnerships’ offering.

The sales consulting award was in recognition of a consulting program which helped increase store coverage and same store sales for a mid-market beauty and fashion company. The program emphasized clear goals for field sales and activities, and also included a custom CRM application to better manage their sales process.

“I’d like to think that it was our wonderful presentations to the Stevie committee that made the difference but based on the sales data and customer testimonials, our team’s effort made it very easy to put together good cases,” Kessler said. “Obviously the judges agreed.”

The Stevie Awards were created to highlight outstanding performance in sales, marketing and customer service. Companies searching for sales staffing vendors frequently point to Stevie recognition as a stamp of approval that reflects the quality of a company’s work.

“We want to win every category, but we congratulate the other winning companies and all those who submitted,” said Kessler. “The Stevie Awards offer customers a forum to seek out ethical and effective sales outsourcing options, which elevates the sales profession as a whole.“
