TOP 100 GLOBAL SALES LEADERS 2021

Bill Hobbs

Chief Revenue Officer at ANVYL

 

Hobbs’ first lessons in business, leadership, and operations came from watching his parents build several businesses throughout his childhood. He credits support from his family for his professional success. This is Hobbs’ second time being named a Top 100 Global Sales Leader, and he’s also been named a Top 100 Customer Success Strategist by Mindtouch. Since joining ANVYL in 2019, Hobbs has increased sales by 4,000% and increased existing customer revenue by 3,000%. Within that same time frame, the company was included on the Forbes Cloud 100 Rising Stars and the SaaS 100 list. When asked what drew him to sales, Hobbs said he enjoys helping businesses exceed their goals and discover new approaches. “I have always gravitated toward selling products that are unique and solve big challenges… Selling ‘new-market’ products is a different kind of challenge as we are largely competing against the status quo, which means that the easiest thing for a customer to do is nothing.” Hobbs is considered a thought leader in both sales and customer success — he is a bestselling author and a regular contributor to Forbes and Business Insider.
