Vancouver, Canada, June 13, 2017 – Legend Power Systems Inc. (TSXV: LPS), a global leader in voltage reduction and optimization technology, today announced the addition of two new members to its Ontario-based direct sales team. Lauren Davis and Keon Karamchi were added as Business Development Managers to increase the company’s sales capacity due to strong demand in emerging market verticals. The new additions will compliment the existing sales team by adding horsepower to existing market verticals for expansion and revenue growth.
“Expanding our direct sales team is the critical next step in our strategic expansion plan,” stated Randy Buchamer, President and CEO of Legend Power. “We’ve built a repeatable selling model based on what we’ve learned to date. Expanding our sales team will allow us to satisfy increasing product demand and quickly scale up sales activity and revenue growth. Everything we learn in a direct sales environment will be applied to a distributor-based selling model as we expand into new geographic territories and countries.”
Legend Power has established business in 13 market verticals with strategic emphasis on the 6 identified as the highest growth potential for its Harmonizer solution. Record revenue growth and considerable market penetration continues to grow in the education sector with deals spanning individual institutions and various school boards. Specific sectors to receive additional sales resource deployment due to untapped market opportunity and pent-up demand include retail, property management, and government.
Direct sales activity to develop core market verticals into organically growing profit centers provides Legend the intelligence to successfully and systematically migrate to a distribution partner selling methodology. By directly understanding the needs, common objections, and path to sales success, the company can properly train and enable channel partners to sell Harmonizer systems. Expansion through a network of local distribution partners is the next growth stage for the organization.
