Don receiving AIIM Award in 2009

In Their Own Words…

“It was a pleasure to work with a senior manager of the caliber of Mr. McMahan. In a short period we on the international team were very impressed with both the level of professionalism and structure he brought to the company, the flurry of activity based around sound business practices and metrics, not only for the U.S. team but for the global teams as well. A bold manager, a leader, with impeccable business acumen, and not afraid to be candid with the truth, and totally committed to the success of the overall organization. A fun guy to work with as well. My sincere recommendation for Don wherever he may go.”

—Robert Young, Regional Manager – Australasia, Pingar, worked with Don at Pingar

“Don is a master of sales and sales management. He has held several VP positions in the industry which I cover as an analyst and has always driven change and growth. Don is a tireless worker who is not afraid to break new ground while also relying on tried and true techniques like strong relationship building. Don should prove an asset as a sales professional to any organization he works with.”

–Ralph Gammon, Publisher, RMG Enterprises

“I had the privilege of working in Don’s organization very early in my career at Kodak. Don was a tremendous personality, with a total understanding of the channel, and a savvy for getting the most out of his teams. He was not only a results driven sales leader, but he often took extra time and effort to offer guidance as a mentor. I owe a great bit of gratitude for the efforts Don made to help me grow as a sales professional.”

—Benjamin David, National Distribution Account Manager, Eastman Kodak, worked indirectly for Don at Eastman Kodak Company

“I had the pleasure of working with Don McMahan while I was at Fujitsu. Don was a direct mentor that provided me with a great deal of support and guidance. To this day I still use many of his lessons to manage critical sales engagement aspects of my current position. His attention to detail and commitment to maintaining a “win-win” environment provided me with an amazing work experience. I gladly offer this recommendation to Don McMahan for his outstanding leadership.”

“If you are running a small to medium business and trying to figure out how to grow or fix your sales problem, check out this company. Don McMahan from Flycloud Consulting offers big company hands on sales management for the smaller organization as an Outsourced VP of Sales. They build sales teams and process and help you grow your business, at a fraction of what it would cost to hire a full time VP. He takes his 30+ years of experience and uses the SalesXceleration program to grow your sales. “

—Jodi Curry, LegalShield Associate

“The business of doing business involves analysis, precision, and repeatable processes. Don knows how to run start-up and established businesses, he understands process, and how to keep the wheels moving in a direction that is up and to the right. He knows how to build a team, implement the right tools, and make those tools useful. I really like how Don is data and performance driven, an approach that is lacking in many organizations.”

—Chris Riley, VP Marketing, Pingar, reported to Don at Pingar as well as Visioneer
