patty faceAs an inside sales rep, you need to be motivated. Inside sales reps think strategically about how to get to the right contact without ever meeting them face to face. We hired Patty both for her great attitude, and because she is focused in her sales strategy, ensuring that she reaches the decision makers when she needs to. Patty also focuses on the present, which many sales people can overlook, especially when the end of quarter rolls around. Patty took a few moments to tell us a little bit more about herself.
