My name is Casey Schumacher.
Graduating in May 2014 with her Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing from the J. Mack Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University, Casey moved to the Bay Area in August 2014 to pursue her sales career in the booming B2B market.
Coming from a heavy retail background, Casey spent the last 3.5 years of her time in college working full time with Apple Retail focusing in B2C and B2B sales and relationships. Splitting her time between training her peers, offering Apple solutions to businesses and consumers, and repairing relationships through tech support, she thrived in Apple culture and enjoyed empowering individuals and organizations through technology.
Once Casey graduated, she decided to see what opportunities were out in the B2B world, as she wanted to work for a company that continued to improve and streamline processes for business efficiency. Revel Systems offered Casey a sales development role and she (along with her dog, Ramen) decided to venture out to San Francisco to launch her B2B sales career and arrived August 2014.
While working with Revel Systems, Casey was able to really dive into her sales development role and help define the sales development processes at Revel. She helped to curate e-mail campaigns, helped the team utilize new tools to connect with and follow up with leads, as well as even worked with leadership to train new SDR hires.
In March 2015, Casey transitioned into a Sales Development role with another growing company in Silicon Valley. As the first person dedicated to sales development at WeVideo, Casey helped changed how the company interacted with new business. In her role, she grew to not only be the first touch for inbound leads, but also started closing her own K-12 business, managing new and renewal business pipelines, and owning Higher Ed and Non Profit accounts from first contact to maintaining relationship post-sale.
In July 2016, Casey decided to take her career in a new direction and joined GrowthX Academy as part of their first cohort of Sales and Business Development proteges. She is learning how to be more an asset to early stage companies in Silicon Valley and is seeking to sharpen her skills in leadership, sales, and relationship building.
In October 2016 Casey accepted a position as the renaissance rep at an early-stage company called Freedcamp. Casey was in charge of setting up and managing the sales area of the company. She worked hard to implement processes to set the company up for success, such as: CRM, Phone system, quoting tools, lead & revenue pipelines, customer success roadmap.
In June 2017 Casey started hew new adventure in Seattle at Skilljar. In 7 months she proved herself as the top performing SDR and meeting her quota month after month. From finding new prospects and following up on inbound inquiries to discovering B-A-N-T and booking demos, she executed on her SDR duties with 100% dedication.
After 7 months it was time to part ways and she is currently looking for a new role in Seattle.
