Sales Talent Partners to Change the Recruiting Landscape with a Premier Level of Service for Top Performing Sales Professionals and High-Tech Companies

Newly formed agency to leverage combined methodology and expertise to save time and mitigate the risk of costly bad hires for Software as a Service (SaaS) and Software (SW) Industry

BOSTON, Mass., July 18, 2016 – Revenue Performance Group (RPG) and Merrimack Valley Consulting (MVC) jointly announced today that they have combined their sales recruiting expertise to form Sales Talent Partners (STP), the premier talent agency nationally representing top sales talent to best-in-class high-tech organizations.

Together, STP will leverage their combined industry tenure and experience to serve the high-tech industry’s skyrocketing demand for quality sales talent. 

 “This combination marks a transformative milestone for both companies and the industry,” said Colum Lundt, Partner of STP. “Lower barriers to entry has led to an explosion of new companies in the Software as a Service (Saas)/Software (SW) industry and employing the right sales talent can make or break the ability to survive. At the same time, the ‘A’ players have the advantage of being more selective than ever in their career choices. They’re no longer looking for ‘recruiters’ and ‘headhunters’ - they want talent agents and career advocates, which is the exact premier level of service that STP provides.”

According to a study by the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM), the cost of hiring the wrong candidate could cost up to five times a bad hire’s annual salary. Additionally, the Harvard Business Review claims that up to 80% of employee turnover is related to bad hiring decisions. STP’s unique proposition to the market is the near elimination of these types of incongruities by leveraging a proprietary methodology proven over decades of consistent and repeatable implementation. The methodology, present throughout the lifecycle of the hire, ensures that top talent sales professionals are presented with only unique matches to their specific career goals and objectives.  For high-tech companies, STP implements an exclusive vetting process that combines technology and expertise to save time and mitigate risk of a bad hire.

“STP will continue to build on the reputation and network of these two firms to bring together only the top talent and best opportunities - delivering the most ideal and precise matches,” said Chris Patten, Managing Partner of STP. “The difference is that STP is a relationship-driven firm that takes the time to engage in ongoing conversa btions about long-term goals and objectives, rather than try to force matches that we know won't benefit the company or the candidate in the long-run.”

Sales Talent Partners opened a new office in Andover, Massachusetts to accommodate their expansive growth initiatives for 2016. Visit www.salestalentpartners.com to learn more.
