Ken began his sales career the hard way, selling books door-to-door for the Southwestern Company. He was also a #1 Account Executive for NCR Corporation selling software and computer hardware in the late '70s and early '80s. He joined CBSI in 1982 and quickly became the company's top Sales Executive and held that distinction until taking the position of Director of Sales in 1987. In this position Ken immediately revamped the sales organization, growing the sales force while implementing and developing the company's first comprehensive sales training program.
