Welcome to traftonesler.com! This is a great place to learn about my background, experience, interests and to review recommendations from colleagues, supervisors and customers. I am presently considering new opportunities, and would be happy to start a conversation with you.
I am an entrepreneurial MBA with a background in software engineering and over 6 years of experience in the software industry including key contributions at startups like WP Engine, Spredfast and Yesware. My broad interests and experiences in Marketing, CS and Sales have enabled me to easily relate across teams and with customers big and small from every industry. A unique blend of work with customers, software and business process makes me a valuable candidate. An ideal role would involve close working relationships with developers, product and program managers, and be focused on improving the customer experience and driving business goals for loyalty, revenue and efficiency.
“Intelligence, personality, and drive are Trafton’s key strengths. I worked with him while on assignment at WP Engine and witnessed first hand how he got himself in front of buyers, closed deals, and created strong relationships with buyers that paid dividends over time.
Trafton is a top-notch professional that always keeps his sales and service responsibilities front and center, and aligned with his commitment to the customer. I would recommend him without reservation for anything he saw fit to pursue.” –Don Beeson
“Trafton is dedicated, hard working and always willing to take on new roles or responsibilities to get the job done. He finds ways to streamline and improve internal as well as system processes and workflows. He’s always my go-to for input and testing new ideas and would be a great addition to any team.” – Joy Wallis
“As I got to work with Trafton at Spredfast, I feel comfortable in strongly recommending him as an individual with exceptional drive and commitment to success. I have yet to encounter another SaaS software sales executive whose values, pledge to excellence and contagious energy not only create great results but also a strong team chemistry.” –Olivier Gachot
“Trafton is a great team player. His results were always stellar when we worked together. In my opinion his greatest asset is a constant mission to learn more and to improve. His attention to detail will likely serve him well, no matter the career path he follows. He’s also just a terrific person, so I’m glad to count him among my friends.” – Ron Shulkin
