Learn More About David Linsmeyer
Top First Year Producer
David cut his teeth in sales through his summers knocking on doors with the Southwestern Company’s sales and leadership program, Southwestern Advantage. He was a top first-year producer and top experienced producer year over year, as well as an award-winning recruiter and organizational leader, leading teams of 50+ in the field. Beyond his summers selling books door-to-door, David has worked and consulted in a range of verticals, including education, travel, aerospace, healthcare, and consumer products, offering both tactical expertise and strategic vision alike.
He has become an expert in helping both early-stage and established organizations identify their unique value propositions and build their sales infrastructures. He has also explored and lived in emerging markets throughout Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, working on large-scale government initiatives aimed at providing comprehensive skill development and training to local professionals. Through these experiences, David has learned not only how to influence executive-level decision-makers across linguistic and cultural barriers, but he has also grown to understand and appreciate these barriers that so often divide us. He holds a limited working proficiency in Arabic and Thai and is just as at home on the back roads of Ethiopia as he is in a boardroom in Saudi Arabia.
