With the power of deep learning and artificial intelligence at their fingertips, today’s sales professionals are the superheroes of the 21st century. Melding face-to-face tactics perfected hundreds of years ago with modern technology from a day or so ago, the modern sales professional now boasts a utility belt that would make Batman envious.
Take Eric Danetz, for example. A chief revenue officer for AccuWeather, he wields technology to help farmers, freight-hauling businesses and even ski resorts operate effectively.
Danetz is just one of the sales industry’s superheroes. From Forrester to Apple and Graybar to Sony, sales executives worldwide are realizing that, to compete today, charming words aren’t enough. To win, new technologies and specialized knowledge is the rule of the day.
The Modern Sale teamed up with Collective[i], which curated the 2019 list of the Top 100 Global Sales Leaders. An extensive evaluation of thousands of sales professionals resulted in the honorees listed here.
These leaders were selected based on the breadth and depth of their experience, their commitment to team and leadership development, their overall contribution to the sales profession and their ability to adapt, innovate and embrace the technologies that are rapidly defining the modern sale.
We celebrate the remarkable individual achievements of this year’s Top 100 and their collective contribution to the sales profession.
