After spending nearly a decade in a corporate structured environment, leading high performing sales teams, Stacie Brown found early stage startup calling her name. Brown, left her Business Development Director role at CEB at the start of this year for something a little less known. That’s when she joined the team at Carver Peterson Consulting as Managing Director where she fully stepped into the work that she is most passionate about; coaching and developing others.
What value are you looking to add to CPC? How do you plan on leaving your mark?
I will be building and running our training division. I come to CPC with 15 years of sales, leadership, and training from a top sales and training institute. My goal is to apply the processes and behaviors of a world class sales organization in our sales training, leadership development, and coaching business. I want CPC to be the first team that comes to mind when exploring the needs around the development of an organization’s sales force and leadership teams. To be thought of a premier training group that makes an immediate impact on your business in an engaging and dynamic learning environment. When people think of me, I want them to think of me as a coach, motivator, and one who cultivates positive action.
What are you looking forward to the most at CPC?
The growth of the company! To be part of something early on and to already see the growth in such a short window is so impressive. It is exciting to think forward on what my one-year reflection will be to five years, and 15 years from now. It’s exciting to be part of a firm that one day we can look back and see the legacy we leave for our city and families.
What advice would you offer someone who is looking to make the transition for corporate to startup?
I would apply the same advice I have used in all professional and major life changes. Be sure to be running to something and not from something. And to never underestimate the power of your intuition.
