Josh Tate

Summary

I'm tenacious, tactful, tasteful, and talented as not only a well-versed communicator but a young professional with a wide-array of experiences who is highly motivated and willing to go the extra mile. I've honed my sales experience and tested the waters in multiple industries from the food service industry, to the one-call closing model of an inside sales representative. Whether it is selling or marketing a product or providing top-notch service I have a positive sales record, high conversion rate, and strong closing ability. I've worked abroad, have the ability to adapt to new environments extremely well, as well as have superb oral and written abilities. I provide high class results in an efficient manor and am extremely passionate and dedicated about all my work. I am looking forward to joining a team of future leaders as a way to cultivate my skill-set and continually grow and learn in the business world.
