It's not about Jack, and it's not about his products. It's all about his customers. The customer is #1. The customer rules. For Jack, the sun rises and sets with customers whose purchase of products pay the bills.
The best companies get this right and Jack has had the privilege to work for several of them - World Class sales, service and support organizations. Early in his career it was ingrained in Jack that the customer comes first. Across every field branch office and at the home office, all efforts evolved around ultimately satisfying customer wants and needs. At these companies Sales is King, but the Customer is #1. All employees moved toward the fulfillment of keeping customers coming in and staying in the fold and growing their relationships with them.
That priority permeated the culture of each of the organizations Jack has been involved with. While there was a healthy respect for the products, sales prowess and service reputation, there has been an almost reverential feeling toward existing customers and prospects. This carried over into how he has approached, serviced and sold to them. It wasn't always perfect, but the culture drove the effort.
With the correct focus on the customer, the foundation for Jack’s sales success and thus effectiveness was laid. He respects his prospects and customers as people rather than as objects of attainment, and he approaches, engages, discovers, questions, negotiates and closes with competent humanity. Jack does not badger, insult, barrage, belittle, disrespect, manipulate, or take advantage of those whom he seeks to serve. He approaches his prospects and customers with a servant's heart, a workman's ethic, with a quality product at a fair and reasonable price, and has become a force to be reckoned with in the marketplace.
