3-2-1 PROFITS – THE PODCAST – S1:E8 – Sales! Are you listening?
In this episode of 3-2-1 PROFIT$ – THE PODCAST, your host Gery Deer talks with lifelong sales professional Matt Borgert. LISTEN NOW!
Matt Borgert is a consummate sales professional, with a skill set that starts with great listening and genuine care and understanding for those he’s working with. He was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, one of six kids and youngest of 3 boys, and so competitive by nature. His father was self-employed in the insurance business (sales skills being somewhat second nature in that regard) and he graduated with a BA in Business Management with Marketing Minor from Eastern Michigan University.
By the age of 30, Matt was working in the hotel/resort and convention hospitality industry where he’d been put in charge of sales and marketing operations for a $44-million hotel company in Cleveland. Clearly, he had the sales chops for it. Over his 10 years in that role, the company was able to increase revenues to $55 million while reducing annual sales and marketing expenses from $5 million to $2.8 million.
In 2000, the hotel company was sold, and Matt returned to Dayton, partly due to the change in the business and to help care for aging parents. Since then, he’s been involved in a variety of sales and marketing work from franchise recruitment to the legal field. He took the time to come by our studio and share his experience, insights, and advice about the past, present, and future of sales – a skill that, the more it changes, the more it stays the same.
