Working with Gungho
Lee Kirschbaum SVP, Product, Sales, and Marketing selected Gungho to provide appointment setting in 2017 to support & execute a plan to aggressively grow Hiperos in North American, Asian & European markets. Having worked previously with Gungho (during his time at Kroll), Lee understood the value an external appointment setting agency could bring to scaling the number opportunities needed for such rapid growth.
As part of a 16 week pilot, the Gungho operations team worked alongside the Hiperos Marketing team to profile key target accounts & contacts using the Gungho proprietory data set of over 100,000 compliance, 3rd party risk & supply chain professionals. After an onsite training day with Hiperos; the Gungho calling team were able to represent the brand and pitch , making contact with senior compliance, risk & procurement professionals in Fortune 500 companies to establish challenges in their 3rd party risk management programmes. The initial 16 week pilot delivered 40 well qualified appointments for the Hiperos sales team to attend. Given the success and scale of opportunity identified, it made commercial sense to establish Gungho as a long term partner to provide a regular feed of highly qualified meetings into the Hiperos sales teams.
What was said
‘Because Gungho callers ‘get’ the topic of supply chain risk, due diligence, screening and compliance they were effective from Day 1. My first appointment popped into my calendar within a few hours of Gungho calling. I’d endorse you guys all day long. Thank you for all the hardwork you put in for Hiperos.’ Max Dalziel, Account Director, Hiperos
‘It’s a delight working with you and I think you are exceptionally talented at what you do. I’ve been working with various telemarketers / appointment setters for a number of years and can safely say Gungho are the best!’ Sophie Warwick, Head of Field Marketing & Demand Generation EMEA & APAC, Hiperos
