Thank you for tuning into my podcast, “Snack Sized Sales,” where I focus on sharing three actionable tips on one topic that you can use to transform your sales.
Today, my guest is Jeff Sangalli, board member and CEO at Monty’s Plant Food Company. Jeff comes on to teach us how we can really humanize our sales culture and exponentially grow a business even when it’s in a flat industry.
Jeff is an experienced executive with over 25 years of conceiving and executing strategic business plans, steering organizational decisions as a change agent, and launching new ventures while bridging the gap between technology and commercialization. While at Lexmark International, Jeff progressed through the organization, developing practical experience in virtually every aspect of business, manufacturing, supply chain, logistics and R&D.
He took a bold leap from a Fortune 500 company to become the general manager of a startup, Organocat, in 2019. In 2018, he became the CEO and board member of Marty's Plant Food Company, an international developer, marketer and seller of specialized soil amendment and plant fertility products. Under his leadership, Monty’s has tripled its revenue and profit in a very flat agricultural industry. Stay tuned for all the valuable insights Jeff has to share.
