As a Sr. Leader at Gateway, Gene worked up the ranks to becoming the leader on Gateway’s first Major Account Sales Training program. With its implementation, he was able to initiate the first Coaching Program toward reinforcing sales influence techniques and created the Gateway Solutions Team focused on specialization through new hire and key strategic product training. Gene was responsible for billions of dollars in revenue while at Gateway.
