TOP 100 GLOBAL SALES LEADERS 2021

Kelley Hippler

Chief Sales Officer at Forrester

 

Hippler is at the helm of research and advisory firm Forrester, where she leads a team of over 700 global sales and customer success professionals. She’s been with Forrester for over 20 years, during which she has helped the firm’s clients become “customer-obsessed.” This is Hippler’s third year in a row being named a Top Global Sales Leader, an achievement that speaks to her outstanding work for the firm. One of the most powerful lessons Hippler has learned during her career is that every business must be agile — constantly learning and changing. “The learning never stops, the development never stops,” she said in an interview. “The minute that you try to stand still or think in your mind that you’re done with something, you’re already falling behind on the next wave.” Outside of the office, Hippler’s greatest source of pride is her two sons. She also enjoys running, and in 2016, she fulfilled her dream of running the Boston Marathon.
