CEO

Sean Raymond

Sean pursued his corporate career by starting off in sales with no qualifications whatsoever. The intention was always to utilize commission earnings to study and earn qualifications while accumulating experience.

Sean earned a CFA at the CFA Institute as well as a qualification in Corporate Finance and Business Management at the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS).

While earning his qualifications, Sean developed a passion for sales and moved into senior leadership roles at global companies such as Thomson Reuters, Business Connexion and Times Media Publishing.

A career in finance and banking, which was the original intention, was negated for a sustained career in sales.

Sean's passion is deriving talent from aspiring sales professionals and helping them achieve their goals, both personally and professionally.

With an impressive track record in building large, complex sales functions. Building and leading successful sales teams and over-achieving against sales targets irrespective of market conditions, Sean has truly earned the title; Sales Professional.
