108: Alex Jones, CRO at NetSPI, talks journey into cyber and building a great sales team


Alex Jones, CRO at NetSPI, joins me today to talk about his journey into the cybersecurity sales world and what he’s doing at NetSPI to continue to build a great sales team. 

Alex spent most of his time building a career outside of cyber (in recruitment), until 5 years ago when he joined NetSpi. At NetSPI, Alex had to dive in head first to learn the terminology and become familiar with the space. Luckily, the nontraditional aspect of his background paid off when he had to make hires to build up his sales team. Alex tells us the 5 key traits he looks for in all potential new hires: 

  • Coachability 
  • Curiosity 
  • Prior success
  • Intelligence 
  • Work ethic 

Tune into today's episode where we expand more on Alex’s tactics to creating a great sales team!
