The Brooks Group's Founder Inducted Into the Sales Hall of Fame

We're pleased to announce that in the first-ever Top Sales Awards, our founder (and my father), the late Bill Brooks, was inducted into the Sales Hall of Fame.

He was included for his amazing contributions to Professional Selling. Although he passed away in 2007, his books, audios, and speeches continue to inspire salespeople all over the world. Yesterday's announcement was recognition for his great work. His work on the buying process was far ahead of its time.

Other inductees included:

  • Zig Ziglar
  • Linda Richardson
  • Earl Nightingale
  • Keith Rosen
  • Jeffrey Gitomer
  • Neil Rackham
  • Tony Alessandra
  • Brian Tracy
  • Gerhard Gschwandtner

What a privilege to be connected to a man whose amazing legacy lives on beyond his lifetime.
