Paul Reilly is the founder and president of Reilly Sales Training. He began his training career by joining Tom Reilly Training. Although Tom Reilly Training has a rich 33-year history in Value-Added Selling, he decided to start a new sales training company with a different focus. Reilly Sales Training offers a complete range of training programs, consulting services, and training assessments.
Before entering the training industry, Paul spent over fifteen years as a salesperson. He began his sales career at the age of 16 in St. Louis, MO. During high school, he sold car washes for Waterway Gas & Wash. During college, he started a painting company through the franchise organization, College Pro.
Paul attended the University of Missouri – Columbia, where he earned his undergraduate degree in Business Marketing. He went on to earn his MBA from Webster University.
Paul has over 11 years of outside sales experience. His first professional sales job was selling propane for Ferrellgas. After several months of exemplary performance, he was given an opportunity to sell in one of the largest territories in the country.
For six years, he sold tools and fasteners for the Hilti organization. A majority of his time was spent selling to customers in the petrochemical and power generation markets. During his tenure, he joined the Hilti Master’s Club in 2010 and was recognized in 2011 with Hilti’s Three Million Dollar Sales Club.
Paul also sold medical gas equipment for Allied Healthcare Products, a St. Louis-based medical supplier. He was able to grow his business by increasing distributor sales and re-penetrating the Canadian market.
Paul’s training methods draw from a diverse sales background. He has sold commodities, market-leading brands, and low-cost products; in the construction, industrial, and medical fields. He can relate to your salespeople because he has faced the same challenges and opportunities they face on a daily basis.
Whether selling propane, tools and fasteners, medical equipment, or training programs he is guided by the Sales and Service 101 Philosophy. “Sell customers what they need and give them the service they want.”
