Holden Named to Selling Power’s 2015 Top 20 Sales Training Companies List

CHICAGO – July 17, 2015 – Selling Power has named Holden, a Chicago-based global leader in sales performance development, one of the Top 20 Sales Training Companies for its dedication to helping improve sales performance. This is the 15th year for the ranking, which highlights the top sales training forces in the United States. The list will appear in the August issue of Selling Power magazine.

Ryan Kubacki, CEO of Holden, said it was an honor to be recognized. “We’ve done our best at Holden to really make an impact on sales performance. Being honored with this recognition is validation that we’re doing it right,” said Kubacki.

Gerhard Gschwandtner, who is publisher and founder of Selling Power, said that sales training is imperative when it comes to best-in-class results. He said that in selecting the Top 20, Selling Power considered depth and breadth of training offered; innovative and new offerings (specific training courses or methodology) or delivery methods; ability to customize offerings and strength of client satisfaction.“Great salespeople require the right toolset, the right skillset, and the right mindset to win,” said Gschwandtner. “A great, consultative sales-training initiative can address all three areas. Sales leaders should use this list of the Top 20 Sales Training Companies to find the solution that best suits their needs.”

Gschwandtner adds that the businesses recognized in this year’s list all offer the following benefits: They provide a consultative experience; quantify results with metrics; offer customization and post-training support; and have a documented track record of ROI and customer satisfaction.

According to Kubacki, this recognition will inspire Holden to work even harder to help improve sales habits and behaviors in the future. “As one of the Top 20, we have a reputation not only to uphold, but to beat” he said. “That’s what’s in store for 2015.”
