Sales Geek franchisee adds to team

The Sales Geek franchisee representing Lancaster & South Lakes, one of the first to sign up to the scheme, has recruited its first additional team member.

Tony Capper launched the franchise in October 2020. He has worked in sales since 1997, including 13 years as business development director at BT. 

Thanks to the success of his new venture, he has been able to recruit Christian Coates, who previously built Barrow-based digital agency PinkSquare Media to a 12 strong team.

Sales Geek, which is based in Blackburn, recently reported 80 per cent growth in 2020 after moving all of its services online at the start of lockdown, and then going on to win its first international client, launch its first franchises, and also launch the free version of its Sales Geek Hub app, which now has users across the globe.

Tony said: "What’s great about bringing Christian on board is that we in fact both have very different client experiences, so we can really broaden out the expertise we offer. It’s not like having just another me, we both bring something unique to the table.”

Christian added: "I’m very proud to have built PinkSquare Media to a level where I don’t need personally to be part of the team on a day-to-day basis. Our fantastic team are fully able to operate to the highest standard autonomously. That’s a situation most smart business owners want to get to, so joining Sales Geek allows me to share my experience in achieving that, while also helping them with short term solutions, like smashing their sales targets."
