In today's market, growing sales and reducing costs while maintaining or improving service levels is the name of the game.
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) October 21, 2011
Two former LPL Financial leaders launch consulting business to help banks and credit unions grow sales and yield consistent results. Managing Directors, Andy Barksdale and Christine Strickland, formed Timoleon Group, LLC to help financial institutions ensure marketing, training and sales plans produce results with lower costs.
“Sales and marketing efforts can fall flat without the right commitment and process to manage execution. The market needs more than solid strategy, marketing, or training,” says Barksdale. “Timoleon specializes in execution and is committed to integrating unique execution tools to help make every campaign easier to execute and drive the desired results. In today’s market, growing sales and reducing costs while maintaining or improving service levels is the name of the game.”
“Financial institutions are looking to boost non-interest fee income, expand their reach beyond retail branch traffic, increase their share of wallet, and increase services per household. We customize our proprietary tools and processes for an integrated approach based on the financial institution’s unique culture and resources to address their growth goals,” says Strickland. With over 20 years each of retail and financial services experience, Barksdale and Strickland have helped hundreds of financial institutions successfully achieve or exceed their goals.
Timoleon Group’s specialties include: sales and execution planning, cross-selling growth strategies, marketing and communication execution, sales leadership coaching, and sales campaign execution (including the tracking, analysis and reporting of the results). Services are provided through two brands: Timoleon Consulting (helping financial institutions align and execute on sales and marketing) and LBE Coach (leveraging best practices to help financial institutions build or reengineer Licensed Branch Employee Programs). Proprietary tools include http://www.myretiredreams.com (focusing on wallet share) and Campaign Amp (focused on campaign execution).
Named after a Greek statesman known as the “friend of good fortune,” Timoleon strives to help its clients achieve success through communication, teamwork and execution.
