James Obermayer, executive director of the Sales Lead Management Association (SLMA), announced the results of the voting for the Most Influential People in Sales Lead Management in 2011, with Laura McGuire, CEO of Colorado-based Saligent, taking top honors. “I personally know many of the phenomenally talented nominees,” said McGuire. “Just to be named alongside them is a big achievement, so to receive the most votes gives us much to celebrate!”
Obermayer said, "These winners are recognized by their industry peers as multi-dimensional sales and marketing experts who give unselfishly of their time as speakers, teachers, and writers. They are power players in marketing and lead generation and come from many diverse disciplines including CRM and marketing automation software, telemarketing, direct marketing, and publishing.”
