Chelsea Berthet
Sr. Market Development Manager at LogMeIn
Kevin is a super-star. We were introduced when my start-up Speek purchased Salesloft from Kevin. I LOVE the product, and Speek's success before being acquired by Jive was heavily impacted, if not entirely because of Salesloft. If Kevin says to buy the thing, do yourself a favor and buy the thing.
Michael Porc
Salesorce Operations Specialist at Shopify
Kevin was very knowledgeable, attentive to our needs, and was very prompt with communication. Everything we needed was provided with ease and a smile, making the experience hassle free and enjoyable.
Jay Kim
Manager, Enterprise Sales Development at New Relic
Sales 101 - Kevin took the time to fully understand our business needs and objectives before showing a single feature of the platform. His consultative selling approach was one of the main reasons we decided to go with Salesloft.
TJ Crowns
Sales Development Manager at SpringCM
Kevin immediately impressed me as a partner trying to help us implement the right solution for our Sales Development team. He is consultative and honest which I find extremely valuable in a sales rep. His ability to build lasting relationships makes him an asset to do business with vs a sales rep selling and never reconnecting.
Steven Broudy
Director, Global Business Operations at MuleSoft
When working with an AE, I'm looking for a trusted advisor – one who's not just knowledgeable about their own product, but, importantly, understands the landmines, and obstacles, I might face making a purchase decision. Kevin not only did just that. He also advised me on industry best practices and connected me with other leaders in our space. A+
Mariela Ciani Towers
Director at Pindrop
Kevin impressed me the first time we talked when he reached out to evaluate if we had a solution in place to help with BDR productivity. It was clear to me that he had done his research and he was applying sales methodology he had been trained on. This made him a trusted advisor as we continued down the path to license SalesLoft for our team.
Natalie Kerns
Account Executive at Cloud Elements
What impresses me most about Kevin is his genuine care for others. He's a really good person, and has the best of intentions - he's not going to sell you something he doesn't believe in, or he doesn't believe is going to be the right fit. He's super knowledgable, extremely responsive, and has shown continued interest in our teams success.
Ryan Donohue
VP, Sales Services at Imagine Business Development
Kevin has impressed me since he began as a sales executive at Salesloft. I have been his customer at least 3x now and have referred many other clients to him. He never fails to answer any and all questions, but also helps with creating value by uncovering potential issues with which his product can solve. Highly recommend Kevin.
Jonathan Hearn
VP of Sales Operations at Clear Channel Outdoor
Took multiple sessions to answer my questions by walking through the product and created customized examples that were relevant to my use case.
Emerald Maravilla
Sr. Manager Sales Development at Sift Science
He took the time to listen to our problems. Instead of shoving Salesloft at us in a way prescribed by Salesloft, he built an understanding of where we were, what plagued us, and recommended the right solutions based on that.
David Yasson
VP of Sales at Izenda, Inc.
He walked through our needs and made sure that his platform would address them all. Not just for today, but what we were looking to accomplish in the upcoming year.
Steve Dodsworth
Director of Sales Development at Alteryx, Inc.
Super refreshing to work with a sales person who's truly interested in helping you solve a business problem vs just sell you something. I would jump at the opportunity to work with Kevin again.
Nellie Aube
Regional Sales Director at Nitro, Inc
Straight to the point and helped me internally sell - didn't BS me.
Ander Vazquez

Rachel Redman
Business Development Manager at Steelhouse
Kevin continued to be persistent with getting our SDR team on Salesloft and helped us through a few obstacles we were facing. Overall he provided great support and solutions to make for a meaningful partnership.
Patrick Purvis
CRO at DiscoverOrg
Kevin and I became pen pals debating whether the best go-to-market strategy for SDRs was using automated or personalized emails. He impressed me with his ability to see both sides of the debate while confidently sticking to his guns.
Dhiraj Singh
Director, Commercial Sales at MemSQL
Kevin impressed me with his responsiveness, communication skills and attention to detail. At some point he found out I liked Japanese Whiskey and brought over a bottle by hand after the deal was closed. Overall fantastic experience with Kevin!
Lou Lurz
VP Sales Development at Tangoe
Kevin is very responsive and respectful of the sales process. He listens well and doesn't try to tell you something that you don't need. He tries to understand your needs and craft his solution to meet those.
Troi Meyers
Director of Inside Sales at NetSPI
It has been great working with Kevin. He is always willing to go the extra mile to help and is always quick to return a call or email. His persistence is a always professional. I plan to continue working with Kevin in the years to come.
Misha McPherson
CEO at HumbleGritSales
One of the most important things to me with a sales rep is that they understand their business backwards and forwards. I want them to be an expert, and Kevin was that. I learned from our interactions, and that was key for deciding to move forward.
Sasha Olson
Director of HR at Kinetic
Kevin has a great personality and always has a smile on his face. He can easily make anyone laugh with a funny joke here and there. Kevin is very polite, professional, and has a great work ethic. He is very dedicated and has the drive it takes to succeed in this industry. It is a pleasure to work with Kevin.

Jeff Kirchick
VP Enterprise Sales at Next Caller
I've worked with Kevin for the past six months or so and have established SalesLoft here at Next Caller after extensive conversations. Kevin is a professional sales rep who knows the balance between the right amount of persistence and the right amount of distance. I appreciate his work ethic in showing various demos to myself and our sales reps and highly recommend him.
Angela Sun
Director of Marketing at Urjanet
Kevin has a true and natural knack for sales! A great pleasure to work with, very knowledgeable in SalesLoft's products (Cadence and Prospector), and a diligent hard worker. Kevin was always very responsive, attentive, and truly went above and beyond to make this partnership work for both Urjanet and SalesLoft.
Tom Murdock
Business Development at Hubspot
The two biggest complaints about sales people are that they talk to much and don't understand their customer's business. Kevin's the opposite. He listens, asks great questions, advocates for his customers inside his own company, and creates win-win deals for his customer and his company.
Noam Cadouri
Business Development at Reddit
Kevin is a joy to work with. He is able to see both the big and small picture allowing him to drive the sales process -- from identifying the right partners to closing the deal. I would strongly recommend Kevin to any company, he is the right kind of executive to lead a team to success.
Race Johnson
Co-founder at Pixly.TV
The first thing I noticed about Kevin's approach was that he was extremely knowledgeable and personable. During the evaluation process, Kevin was the most hands-on and accessible which made me very comfortable in my decision to use SalesLoft as our platform of choice. I'm super happy to be working with Kevin and would recommend him to all my peers.
