WHAT IS SALES-I?

MEET OUR FOUNDERS

Paul and Kev founded sales-i back in 2008. They’ve lived and breathed our success ever since. From humble beginnings to an international sales performance software powerhouse, they’ve done really rather well. Well enough to get their own dedicated little space on the internet anyway. Meet our co-founders. They’re super cool, we promise.

PAUL BLACK | CEO/CO-FOUNDER

Before sales-i, Paul built a multi-million pound home computing company after setting sales strategies at Hewlett Packard. He also held senior roles at both Barclays B2B and CapGemini.

Paul sets the company’s technical direction and spearheads business and sales partnerships. He is heavily involved in defining the company’s marketing strategy and technical delivery of sales-i.

He is an adrenaline junkie, in his element burning rubber around a racetrack and regularly competes on the international racing stage.

KEVIN MCGIRL | CO-FOUNDER

With senior roles at some of the top software companies in the world including Computer Systems for Business and Proteus Software under his belt, Kev knows a thing or two about the business software world. He was also the youngest director in the UK at IT giant, Unisys.

Kev’s knowledge and experience has been instrumental in designing a software solution that responds to the challenges facing today’s businesses. He is now the driving force behind sales-i’s go to market and sales strategies.

Kev has completed a number of marathons in the UK and the US where he now lives, based in the sales-i Chicago office.
