Clinton Gott (Los Angeles) – Principal

“A sales compensation program should serve as a critical enabler of your business strategies and sales success. Your sales incentive costs are significant; it is essential to ensure your plans direct, retain, and motivate. Few levers can so quickly or efficiently impact the overall performance of a sales organization!”

Clinton helps clients utilize sales compensation investments to achieve business and sales results. Without a properly focused, motivated, and rewarded sales team, achieving overall business goals becomes something hoped for rather than enabled.  His work focuses on motivating sales and service people to fulfill the promise of an organization’s unique business objectives.
