FUTURE DRIVEN – EPISODE 20: JOEY GILKEY
Welcome to episode 20 of Future Driven! This week, Adam spoke with Joey Gilkey, founder of Sales Driven Agency. Joey is committed to using his valuable career experiences to help other agencies build successful sales operations.
After working for nonprofit organizations, Joey joined the corporate world and gained a wealth of helpful sales operations knowledge. He then changed courses and began working with two small businesses as the Vice President of Sales before making the decision to work solely for himself. Joey first built an outsourced sales agency called Tribe that he has since sold, and then founded his current consulting firm, Sales Driven Agency. Now with his own podcast and several other endeavors, he is focused on growing his business while helping others grow theirs.
Future Driven is hosted by Adam Kopp, CEO of the strategic marketing agency, Madak. In each episode, Adam talks to a different industry leader, discussing their careers, leadership styles, and goals for the future.
