We’re excited to bring on Red Hat and The Keri Shull Team as corporate sponsors this month. They join other great sponsors who are committed to helping selling professionals get better at the art and science of professional selling including ASHER Strategies, Sales Performance International, Vorsight and others.

Red Hat is the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, using a community-powered approach to provide reliable and high-performing cloud, virtualization, storage, Linux, and middleware technologies. Together with Red Hat’s solutions, Red Hat’s worldwide support, training, and consulting services provide everything organizations need to bring the power and freedom of open source into government agencies and enterprises. The company is a large employer of sales and customer support professionals and provides a superior work environment for employees to succeed. Sponsorship of the IES was pursued to help their public sector inside sales team develop and achieve greater success as sales professionals.

We asked Paul Smith, General Manager of Red Hat Public Sector, (pictured above) why he advocated for the sponsorship. He said, “The IES mission, to help sales leaders and their teams grow and continuously improve performance, was very attractive to our leadership as we look to help our own sales professionals and those at our partners grow. The IES has developed a strong and positive sales performance curriculum and culture that provides significant value to the selling professional.”

IES Executive Director Fred Diamond said, “IES membership is comprised mainly of high-performing and successful business to business sales leaders and their teams who are constantly seeking training and education to improve their craft.  Sponsors such as Red Hat and The Keri Shull Team exemplify excellence in sales performance and customer engagement. One reason is because they are committed to their people and partners in the sales side of the company.”

The Keri Shull Team is ranked as the #1 real estate team in Arlington, Virginia by 3 times the volume of its closest competitor. They have continued to be ranked in the top 2 spots for all of Virginia over the past three years.

We asked President Keri Shull why she chose to sponsor the IES. “We set very high goals for our consultants. Our commitment to keeping our team current on top sales strategies has helped us stay on top and deliver amazing service to our customers. The IES supports our mission and we’re happy to help selling professionals continue to grow and exceed their goals. The IES has the same commitment that we do and we’re excited to help the organization grow,” Ms. Shull said.

Unlike the average agent, The Keri Shull Team offers their clients several guarantee programs to help eliminate the risk and ensure top quality service and results. For sellers, they offer a program that guarantees the sale of your home in a mutually agreed upon time frame and price or Keri will buy it herself. For buyers, they offer a VIP Buyer Guarantee where Keri will buy your home back or sell it for free within the first year if you are unhappy for any reason.
