Tom Searcy is a nationally recognized author, speaker, and expert in large account sales.

How do we know he's an expert? By the age of 40, Tom had led four corporations, growing them each from revenues of less than $10 million to greater than $100 million, and in the last case from startup to greater than $200 million; each in less than four years. This growth was organic, and achieved without buying, selling, or merging any of the four corporations.

Since then, he founded Hunt Big Sales, a fast-growth consultancy whose clients have landed more than $12 billion in new sales with 190 of the Fortune 500 companies, including 3M, Disney, Chase Bank, International Paper, AT&T, Apple and hundreds more.

He is the author of RFPs Suck! How to Master the RFP System Once and for All to Win Big Business and co-author of Whale Hunting: How to Land Big Sales and Transform Your Company, and How to Close a Deal Like Warren Buffett: Lessons from the World’s Greatest Dealmaker. His book Life After the Death of Selling: How to Thrive in the New Era of Sales covers the new buyer-driven economy, and how to survive extinction in the new era of sales.

He has written weekly online columns for Forbes, CBS MoneyWatch, and Inc.com, and has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Inc. Magazine, and many other business publications.

And, interesting fact: he once owned a casino!
