More about our guest Mark Hunter:
Mark never intended to work in the sales industry but when the last name on his birth certificate read “Hunter,” a sales career was meant to be.
His journey in sales included multiple sales and leadership roles with three Fortune 500 companies. Those experiences provided the foundation for him to create the name, “The Sales Hunter” more than 20 years ago. That is when he began his lifestyle of consulting, speaking and writing about sales.
Today, he is humbled by the many faces he meets as he travels the globe. His resumé says he specializes in business development, guiding organizations to find and retain high-quality prospects; however, it really boils down to relationships. He considers it an honor to connect with people each and every day.
His passion for helping, training, and leading others has given him an opportunity to travel the globe. When not on the road, his home is in Omaha with his wife, Ann Marie, who believes in him the most.
