“Sales organizations require keys individuals that can be counted on to meet or exceed targets despite the challenges laid before them. Chris Hussey is one of those individuals. Over multiple years, over multiple employers, over multiple industries, Chris has exceeded established quotas for the year. Chris has been successful year-to-year due to his ability to build relationships with the customer and strategically develop assigned sales territories and customer accounts. He believes in the “team” concept and builds collaboration among the team to ensure success. Chris is an impact player and would make a great asset to any organization. I feel that employees like Chris are crucial to the overall success of an organization and warrant my recommendation.” February 17, 2009

“I had the distinct pleasure of working with Chris while he was the Sales Executive and Major Account Executive for LMS NA. Chris initiated and fostered a solid and cordial working relationship with me and several of my colleagues while we were developing an innovative testing program that LMS was uniquely suited to support. Without presumption, he explained his company’s technical and service capabilities through a number of very difficult periods during this project, all while fostering a very enjoyable business relationship. Chris has that exceptional and rare ability to relate on a very personal level with everyone he meets and talks with, which makes him a high-performing sales person but also a genuinely nice person. He also makes sure he understands and communicates effectively his company’s competitive offerings without 'over-selling', which lends him immense credibility as the company’s services are provided satisfactorily. Chris is focused and aggressive in the sales arena (in a multitude of industries) yet accomplishes this without sacrificing personal or professional relationships or his own goals, which allows him to succeed personally and also in a number of high-impact areas of an organization. I have learned a great deal about what a truly successful business and sales relationship can become from Chris, and I have incorporated a lot of his approaches in my day-to-day activities. Although we do not do business directly any more, I continue to enjoy watching his career flourish.” March 11, 2008
