We are so excited to share some of the awesome presenters for NWiR Day 2021:

“Roofing is… Women in Sales” with Julissa Chavez

Julissa Chavez is a Program Manager with SRS Distribution focusing on Latino Marketing & Sales. She began her career with SRS in 2014, where she served as a Territory Manager in Atlanta, GA. As a Territory Manager, she created training and business development initiatives that assisted with the growth of many companies within the Latino Business Community. In this role, she generated annual sales volume in the millions consistently.
In 2020, Julissa received a promotion with SRS to the role of Latino Marketing & Sales Program Manager. In her new role, Julissa will assist in bringing a strong focus on SRS’s current and potential Latino customers. Her responsibilities include building the Latino sales and marketing strategy, developing key programs to drive sales, build lasting relationships and creating tools to improve their customer experience.

We all know that focusing on diversity in hiring can have a significant positive impact on your company’s bottom line, and this is especially true when it comes to building your sales team. Unfortunately, sales is too often seen as a male-driven industry, where aggressive alpha-types rise to the top. But buying into that stereotype when you’re hiring can be detrimental to a team’s performance, especially when you consider the range of communication and relationship-building skills that are required to generate success in a modern sales environment.

In this talk, Julissa will build on his experience to highlight the challenges sales people face and the reasons why women may be better suited to overcome those challenges. We will also highlight the different ways women may need to step outside of their comfort zone to help win the sale and rise to the top of their sales team.
