8 Leadership Quotes To Accelerate Your Sales Career

The transition from sales representative to sales leader is a step that most young sales professionals aspire to take. It's a progression that our own Operations Manager, Caleb Welch, advanced through quite quickly. 

Caleb started at Incept as an Account Growth Specialist in 2016, but brought with him more than 11 years of sales experience. He quickly gained success on several different client programs and jumped to the head of the pack in terms of delivering results and client satisfaction. In early 2017, Caleb began transitioning to a client support role where he helped strategize with clients and improve program results.
