Welcome to The Openers Community! Let's get introduced :) 

We are Henry Gimelfarb and Shaina Murugan, founding members of The Openers. (Also, Henry is the VP of Sales, and Shaina is the SDR Manager at Plate IQ).

SDR's don't get enough love!

(this was supposed to be a regular post, not a question, but it doesn't look like I can change it)


Super excited to be a part of this group. The description of the group says it best- why do Closers get all the glory?!


I'm an SDR Manager at Impact, a SaaS marketing technology company. Previously, I was an SDR here, and before that I was at SinglePlatform as full cycle (setting meetings and closing) rep.


The philosophy behind sales really gets me fired up, so I'm looking forward to interacting with you all- hopefully I can teach you a little something and hopefully you can teach me a little something too!

Hi Lee!

Nice to e-meet you! I look forward to hearing/learning more from you. So SDR manager to SDR manager, what is something new you have implemented with your team to kick off Q1 to help them out?

Hi Lee, 

That is a great idea! I find that having the same SPIF over and over doesn't actually work for more wins after awhile. Keep us posted on the results!
