Robert Krekstein Joins RLI as VP of Sales
The Rapid Learning Institute (RLI) announces today that Robert Krekstein has joined the company as its new VP-Sales to further develop RLI’s growing portfolio of large regional, national and international accounts.
“We’re delighted to have Rob join the team,” says President/CEO Stephen Meyer. “He’s a seasoned sales executive with experience at great companies, including SAP. He’s had success running all phases of the inside sales process, from demand-generation to sales development to consultative selling. It’s rare to find someone who has that kind of breadth.”
Brian McCallum, VP-Marketing, adds, “Rob was my top choice for this role because he really understands marketing and demand-gen. Our organization has spent the past year creating better transparency between Marketing and Sales and Rob’s the kind of executive who can provide great insight into how the two departments can optimize results through close collaboration.”
RLI provides online training and talent development tools for businesses, government agencies, nonprofits and educational institutions in the areas of sales, leadership, human resources and employment law compliance. It is a market leader in “micro-learning,” which the company defines as “bite-size, single-concept learning to today’s short-attention-span workforce.”
