MD Pete Evans

Sales Development Consultancy, SalesStar UK, has been recognised in the annual SalesStar Global Awards for its success and efforts throughout the pandemic.

The Huddersfield-based firm took home Partner of the Year, the Team First Award and Rookie Coach of the Year for achieving exceptional growth in the last 12 months.

Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the firm doubled its client base adding several flagship clients to its portfolio including Industrial Technology Systems Limited and Applied Power Engineering Limited.

In 2020, it also increased its UK footprint, opening a second office in Kings Cross, London.

UK managing director Pete Evans said the awards were a result of the values they uphold as a firm and the dedication from the entire SalesStar UK team.

“These awards are a testament to the exceptional efforts of the entire team throughout a very challenging period of time. Everyone pulled together and lived by the values of the firm, and it’s paid off – we doubled our client portfolio over the last 12 months,” he said.

“The thing about our coaches is that they are fantastic at building and maintaining relationships and this has led to both repeat and new business. By forming relationships with Northern Affinity partners, as well as continuing our digital selling on LinkedIn, we were able to achieve the growth which led to such heart-warming award wins,” he added.

Partner of the Year was awarded to Pete for exemplifying the core values and demonstrating strong leadership skills after trailblazing from a Licensed Partner to a Practice Partner.

Pete’s leadership skills also saw him win the Team First Award – an award given to the leader who best supports the team and creates an environment where collaborative teamwork is a top priority.

Denis Rollet, who joined SalesStar UK just six months ago, was crowned Rookie Coach of the Year for embracing the SalesStar methodology wholeheartedly and demonstrating commitment to the firm’s unique sales development program.

Commenting on the award, he said: “The SalesStar methodology embraces the science behind selling and it’s a pleasure to teach. Through our unique coaching and development, we educate our clients on how to bring about change to yield results, rather than doing the selling for them.

“Because it is backed by 30 years of science and research, our clients see the benefits and form long-term partnerships with us. For this reason, I believe this award recognises their efforts and the team’s, as well as my own.”
