Sales Geek launches franchise operation

Blackburn-based training company Sales Geek is continuing its rapid growth through the launch of a new franchise programme.

The first two franchisees have already begun work. Simon Damp will head up Sales Geek Preston, drawing on experience including nearly 12 years at Gorilla Glue, where he progressed from European sales director to managing director, and during which time sales grew from £250k to £40m per year.

Tony Capper will run Sales Geek Lancaster & South Lakes on the back of a sales career stretching back to 1997, including 13 years as business development director at BT, followed by a number of roles, primarily in the digital and technology sectors, including sales leadership at accessplanit, MSG Global Solutions and Bluefin Solutions.

The pair will each offer the Your Sales Director service.

Richard Few, Sales Geek founder and CEO, said: "To say we are excited to launch our first two franchises, headed-up by two people of the calibre and experience of Simon and Tony, is probably the understatement of the year. We practice what we preach at Sales Geek and these guys are the real deal. Their track record is impeccable and they are going to do great things for businesses across the region."
