SASKATOON, SK (March 21, 2018) – Vendasta (www.vendasta.com) is today celebrating a leadership appointment that will help drive partner profitability. Todd Roberts is promoted from Manager of Business Development to Vendasta’s Director of Sales, effective immediately.
Roberts will help Vendasta’s 1,200+ agency and media company partners by providing them with multiple revenue motions through the Vendasta platform. He now oversees the Business Development Representatives (BDRs) sales floor, trains salespeople, and coaches the team to meet the needs of customers.
“Todd earned this position,” said George Leith, Chief Revenue Officer of Vendasta. “He’s grown into a leader and he knows how to coach individual sales professionals to help them meet the needs of their clients.”
“In today’s day and age of needs-based selling, a person leading a group of salespeople needs to super-serve customers so that they stay. Todd is a master at this.”
Roberts joined Vendasta in 2014 as a Senior Account Executive and successfully moved to Manager of Business Development last June. He was instrumental in growing Vendasta’s business to its more than 1,200 customers around the world.
“It’s hard to run a media company or a marketing agency in 2018 and we’re here to make it easier,” said Roberts. “We’re working hard to help partners understand how the Vendasta platform improves their bottom line, making big goals more attainable.”
