Hey there, I'm Patrick Faulkner

Sales Professional certified in Science-Based Sales® ready to join your team.

 

I spent four years in the United States Air Force, 15 years in law enforcement (where I did everything a cop can do but ride a horse or ride a motorcycle), and I've been a franchise owner as well as a small business owner. I have experience in B2B sales, sales presentation, customer relationship management and a 4-year degree in Business Administration with an emphasis on Management.

After nearly two decades of being told what to wear to work, I decided it was time to trade in the polyester and kevlar for something more comfortable. Yet, I still bring the same level of intensity, dedication, determination, detail, and enthusiasm to each new task, endeavor, and opportunity.

As an alumni of preHIRED, I am certified in Science-Based Sales® and possess the tools and skills needed to make your sales team successful. I'm trained in several different CRMs, as well as in prospecting & lead generation and qualification; let's not forget smart calls, discovery calls and of course qualification calls. I am looking to join a dynamic sales team environment in an SDR role for a Tech company. Let's talk about how I can help your team meet and exceed its set benchmarks and goals.

Though I drive fast (as fast as the Atlanta Traffic will allow), I do slow down to smell the roses by traveling the world with my beautiful and amazing wife. We also enjoy trips to the North Georgia mountains for day hikes and visits to the Georgia wineries.
