Hiring Doug Warrington as our fractional Sales Manager for Rhithm proved to be an outstanding decision. Doug honed in our team focus in three areas: lead generation, lead nurturing, and closing. This simplification of processes allowed our team to focus on their core areas while using Doug as a sounding board for clarity to fill in the gaps. As a business owner, I was wary of working with a fractional consultant, but almost immediately saw the positive impact Doug made on our team. His voice as an outside resource and SME gave the team peace with the decisions we made and gave us fresh and positively disruptive ideas. I enjoyed Doug immensely as a person, and am grateful to have been coached by him. I consider Doug a friend and look forward to engaging with him again soon.

I've interviewed more than a dozen sales professionals about the world, tactics, and methods of sales for a university project and my interview with Doug was by far one of the most impactful and enlightening. I'm sure anyone under his tutelage will benefit greatly.

I have had the privilege to work with Doug now on two of our startups. First and foremost, he is a consummate professional and trustworthy gentleman. In both instances, we were working through the changing dynamics of finding the sweet spot for our product and its delivery to the marketplace. Doug brings an experienced and curious mind that digs into your company, product, and delivery. In both instances, he delivered tangible insights and value to our sales process. I would recommend him without reservation.
