Testimonials

Randall Foster, former CEORandall Foster, former CEOVumii
I’ve worked personally with Chris Peterson for the better part of three years. He’s conducted numerous projects for us, everything from strategy, to defining the processes and approaches, to the specific tools and tactics for our manufacturer’s rep program. If you need help with the details of your sales approach, I’d highly recommend getting Chris involved.
Carol Wheeler,  Director of OperationsCarol Wheeler, Director of OperationsCode Blue
I was asked to plan the ISC West trade show for Code Blue last year (2012). We had worked with Chris Peterson on a few other projects in the past with success, so we contracted with him and his company to help me build a plan to execute successfully. Without Chris and the tools from Vector Firm, we never would’ve been as successful as we were.The most important part was Chris laying out a plan that made the whole process make sense. What could have been overwhelming to someone with little sales or marketing experience turned into a great success and very gratifying experience for me.
Rob Ledenko,  Executive Vice PresidentRob Ledenko, Executive Vice PresidentIQinVision
When I started as VP of Sales and Marketing at IQinVision, I was faced with many challenges: we weren’t going to the channel properly, our sales organization only knew how to do things one way, and we were struggling at finding larger opportunities. I immediately searched for someone to come in from the outside to help us design a strategy to improve these three areas. Chris helped us with the strategy, specifically in targeting the right types of clients and devoting the majority of our time with these targets. The result has been an average transaction size that has tripled in size in the year and a half since we engaged Chris. Also, we are now regularly pursuing jobs that require thousands of cameras, which we rarely did before.

Phil LutesPhil LutesSignature Systems
We brought in Chris Peterson to assess our sales operations and breathe new life into our stagnant RMR services business. Chris was successful in helping us tweak our sales process and provide a new infrastructure to build upon. Our engagement with Chris was so successful we brought him back less than a year later for a subsequent project. If you’re searching for someone who can help streamline the sales operations of your company, I recommend retaining Chris Peterson and Vector Firm.
Rob Simopoulos, Vice PresidentRob Simopoulos, Vice PresidentAdvance Technology
Chris’ review of our new RMR offerings was extremely helpful. I was excited to see that our group WAS on the right track. That being said, Chris came up with some great additional ideas for us to implement to strengthen the process. We are starting to implement these smart ideas and are already seeing the benefits! We appreciate the help Chris provided us at Advance Technology and look forward to a successful business relationship moving forward.
Jack Johnson, VP of SalesJack Johnson, VP of SalesIntelligent Access Systems
One of the benefits that Chris Peterson brought to our sales department was a logical thought process that led to a successful RMR compensation plan. I highly recommend working with Chris Peterson and Vector Firm.
