"As CTO (Chief Technical Officer) of @Road, I worked with John over a two-year period and found him to be an extremely hard working and intelligent sales professional of the highest caliber.

I worked with John on many accounts over the period but in particular, John excelled in the strategic accounts and his ability to understand our product offering, its real value to the customer and translate this into their language was essential to our success in opening and progressing to closure our major deals.

John has great empathy with the customer at all levels and is able to position himself as a trusted council on technology and real benefits to the customer. He is extremely proficient and thorough in mapping out his accounts in terms of players, influencers and the decision makers. His attention to detail in covering all angles from the customer's perspective forced our technical team to address each and every scenario and prepare for any possible question and competitor diversions or landmines.

His strength of character and moral fiber were particularly evident and appreciated by the executives in our accounts. John took ownership of the account and through the sale he championed the customer viewpoint. This enabled him to understand, yet remain unaffected by account politics while finding the sources of power in the account and influencing them to positive decisions. He built our influence by winning the many day-to-day small decisions in the customer's environment which eventually positioned us as the natural winner of the business when the buying decision arrived.

John's approach and undoubted sales skills enabled us to win the largest sales opportunity we were chasing during that two-year period as well as multiple mid-range sales.

If not because John is an excellent and technically competent sales professional, I would also recommend him based on the fact that he was also good fun to work with."

Pól Sweeney, CTO, worked with John at @Road.
