Jeff Miller has been a top salesperson in every company that he has worked with in a long and successful career in telecommunication sales. Jeff has worked for multi-billion dollar companies (Toshiba, Ericsson) as well as million dollar companies (including his own).
Jeff has managed sales forces from 2 people to 25, and considers himself a “hunter” first. ” I am probably the only person I know that enjoys cold calling. I think it’s either the adventure part or maybe there is just something really wrong with me.”
“Sales Recruiters of Virginia is simply an extension of what Mark Deutsch and I have been doing successfully for the past few years; matching good people up with good companies. Mark and I have created a sales recruiting and training company that any company, large or small, can utilize because we are both highly affordable and we have the ability to deliver high quality candidates.”
