Random Facts About Me

 

Jeffrey Chung born 11/27/1979 in Seattle Washington.  Graduated from Washington State University Pullman in 2003.  BA Business and Economics, Management Information Systems major.  First and only job after college was at this company where I learned B2B sales and account management, how to recruit, hire, train and manage a team of junior sales and sales development reps, how to strategically nurture and close global enterprise accounts with deals in the $20k to $1m range, from cold call to contract the entire sales lifecycle selling IT services to Fortune 100 C level, selling technical solutions by orchestrating a sales team of individuals in and outside of my organization, learned how enterprise clients operate and do business in general and how to close business while avoiding the RFP process.  The life changing and most useful skill that I learned during the 3 years at ITC was the ability to successfully accomplish whatever I put my mind to.  The small firm with global operations and clients across a diverse range of industries was the perfect training grounds for a young and ambitious person.  I’m thankful for having an incredible boss who lead by example with his work ethic, high standards, reliability, constant support and general overall relentlessness and sense of urgency in every single project and task he took on.  I never properly thanked him at the time because I didn’t even realize the lifelong gift he had given me but I need to give him a call someday to thank him for the several years of wasted time he saved me.  Also watching him climb the corporate ranks to VP of Sales was an inspirational and highly educational experience.  That was the first and last job I had working for a company other than my own, so thanks BK.

I prefer selling over managing sales people.
