Recruiting Success Stories:
Featured Placement – Deanna Deery
Account Executive – SaaS/Internet Media
This publicly-held, profitable Internet Media company asked Redfish Technology to locate top sales talent who were fresh thinkers with aggressive sales ability. The company offers a great corporate culture and growth opportunities. Additions to the sales team must be strong hunters with the proven ability to close business. Candidate must have a background in SaaS, knowledge of the e-communications space, and/or a background selling into online advertising or online marketing. The company also hoped for sales training experience, a solid rolodex, track record in target account penetration and in the management and growth of key customers.
Redfish recruited Deanna directly, identifying her proven track record in achieving and exceeding demanding sales quotas in technology & financial software markets at companies such as Marketo Inc., Salesforce.com and Advent Software Inc. Deanna, recognized as a top performer, closed the first six-figure and first multi-year deal at her last position. Deanna’s relationship management skills and industry contacts lent themselves to this new role where she found a true sales environment with exceptional Sales Leadership. In addition to her sales experience, she has been responsible for relationship management ensuring customer retention and overall customer success. Finally, Deanna’s professional development at Stanford University in Advanced Project Management, Barry Rhein & Associates Selling Through Curiosity, and Stuart Diamond’s (Wharton School of Business) Negotiating for Competitive Advantage demonstrate her dedication to her profession.
“I felt very fortunate to have connected with Redfish Technology at the time I was looking for my next opportunity. My requirements were complex as I wanted to gain exposure to new technology, work with a proven, reputable market leader with great leadership and return to the east coast. Redfish exceeded my expectations as we partnered on multiple opportunities each of which had their own requirements in their next hire. Andy was exceptional in providing the insight I needed to wade through not only the information on the organizations; but the interview and overall hiring process. He aided in providing honest and constructive feedback and gained my respect in the negotiations process. Andy was also gracious in following up in the weeks and months following my move to ensure I was happy with my placement. Grateful and appreciative of the experience, I would welcome the opportunity to work with Redfish Technology again.” — Deanna Deery
