Inside Modern Sales Operations | Expert Advice From Spendesk

In our “Inside Modern Sales Operations” series, we're asking Sales Ops Managers in the B2B SaaS market to share one of their best practices. This week Joe Gates from Spendesk is joining us.

Sales and Rev Ops leaders have long been the unsung heroes of revenue generation – until now. 

We realized that Ops needed a voice, especially in the European market. That’s why we’ve created this Inside Modern Sales Operations series. You’ll find each article packed with real, unfiltered advice from one Rev and Sales Operations leader that’s influencing the B2B SaaS industry worldwide. 

Today we’re featuring Joe Gates, Sales Operations Manager at Spendesk. Let’s jump on in! 

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m an experienced Sales Ops Manager with a demonstrated history in the information technology & services industry. My goal here at Spendesk is to provide a strong foundation on which the sales team can thrive, helping them to be as efficient as possible and spend more time on the selling and less elsewhere.
