The growth, globalization, and importance placed on Inside Sales has created a need for peer leaders to come together to share ideas and solve common challenges
(PRWEB) May 02, 2017
The AA-ISP (Global Association for Inside Sales Professionals) announced today the formation of the Enterprise Executive Forum (EEF), a group consisting of current AA-ISP members with senior leadership roles overseeing large, enterprise-wide Inside Sales organizations. The group’s mission is to provide a resource and round-table venue for executive leaders who share common goals of improving, leading and transforming some of the largest Inside Sales organizations in the world.
“The growth, globalization, and importance placed on Inside Sales has created a need for peer leaders to come together to share ideas and solve common challenges specific to large, enterprise organizations,” stated AA-ISP Founder & Chairman, Bob Perkins.
The group plans to meet approximately three times per year, including a session in conjunction with the annual AA-ISP Leadership Summit in Chicago, an “on-site” visit at one of the member’s Inside Sales locations, and one virtual meeting during the year. As a “peer led” group, AA-ISP has named Grainger’s VP of Inside Sales, Amy Knauff, to act as the group’s first Chairperson. The initial group consists of 15 executives from companies with Inside Sales teams ranging in size from 100 to more than 3,500 sales reps. Charter member companies include market leaders such as ADP, Grainger, Infor, CA Technologies, FedEx, Microsoft, SAP, IBM, Oracle, Thomson Reuters, and Coca-Cola, among others.
N3 will serve as the sole financial sponsor for the EEF group to help underwrite Forum expenses in addition to providing industry insights and strategic direction as an active participant. “We found the perfect partner in N3, whose financial support and expertise will be indispensable at the round-tables and across EEF activities,” stated Perkins.
“The Enterprise Executive Forum will enable industry leaders to not only convene and collaborate on evolving trends, but also to continually advance Inside Sales best practices,” said Jeff Laue, CEO and Co-Founder of N3. “We see the Enterprise Executive Forum as playing a vital role in providing the most cutting-edge Inside Sales strategies and impactful results to global organizations across industries, and N3 is thrilled to be involved as both a sponsor and active participant.”
