From the Sales and Lead Management Association Web Site: http://www.salesleadmgmtassn.com/news/2009_Top50_SalesLeadManagement.htm
In September of 2009, the Sales Lead Management Association opened the nomination process to find the 50 most influential people in Sales Lead Management for the year. When nominations closed six weeks later, we had 65 nominees. Voting was opened to members and non-members and each person could vote for up to five people. Duplicates (a person voting more than once or voting for more than five) were deleted. A total of 1604 people cast 3051 votes.
The final public opinion list of the most influential people in sales lead management in 2009 follows, in the order of most votes received. Each person on the list will receive a logo to display on their site, a certificate of recognition, and an SLMA interview invitation to discuss the future of sales lead management. The results of these interviews will be published in the SLMA newsletter or blog throughout 2010.
The SLMA 2010 “50 Most Influential” nomination process will begin at the start of National Sales Lead Management Week, on October 11, 2010.
The SLMA served as the independent tabulator of votes and does not deny the value or endorse the services of those listed. We are greatly encouraged that 1604 people recognize the contributions of those on the 50 Most influential People in Sales Lead Management in 2009.
They are listed in order of number of votes received.
