Co-Founder/CEO, Autoklose (Acquired by Vanillasoft)

Growing up as one of North America’s top tennis players, traveling around the world competing to be the next Andre Agassi, and being told at age 23 that I had to decide to try and become a tennis professional or get an MBA and go down the education route.

I always was an entrepreneur at heart. At age 24, I entered the entrepreneurial world and never looked back. I started out importing packaging from the Orient and selling to top retailers in North America. However, knowing I always loved selling and list building, I founded ExchangeLeads in 2013 which helps companies build custom lists for outreaching new prospects.

In early 2018, I parlayed ExchangeLeads into my second start-up called Autoklose that is a new revolutionary sales automation platform that is used by 3000+ sales professionals around the world to help save them save hours a day and automate the tedious tasks sales people do on a regular day.

I have used my sales strategies over the years to:

• Bring ExchangeLeads from 0 to Breakeven in 5.5 months.
• Launch Autoklose with 3018 prospects ready to purchase before the product was developed.
• Fill sales rep’s calendars with an average of 38 meetings a week
• Increase his clients by over 300% month over month.
