EVELYN SUTHERLAND, VP OF SALES

Evelyn brings with her over a decade of sales and marketing experience, and an impressive sales track record.   She started her sales career in technology staffing and services when she relocated to Colorado in 2011, accepting a position at TEKsystems.   In her role as an Account Manager, Evelyn led the Denver office to new heights in revenue.  As just one of 13 sellers, Evelyn’s revenue contributions accounted for over 50% of the office’s overall revenue on a weekly basis.  At 385% of quota, Evelyn was consistently ranked as the top producer in the office and state as well as the top 3 in the region and top 10 nationally.  She opened up more territory in the Denver market than any other seller, and was frequently moved to territories where other sellers had not seen success.  Notably, Evelyn executed a national agreement with a Fortune 100 customer, and grew this accounts to one of the largest managed services portfolios the in the country.  Evelyn led the national strategy and sales efforts on this account, orchestrating project expansion of a multi-million dollar managed services portfolio.   She opened doors for sellers in other markets and managed the daily activities of recruiters in six markets in support of this account.  As the top producer in her local office, she was responsible for managing the daily activities of more than half of the recruiting staff on a daily basis.  She also managed, mentored and developed six direct reports.  After almost five years with TEKsystems, and an award-winning career with the organization, Evelyn made the change from technology services to software sales.

Evelyn joined Ascent360, a Denver-based startup, as their first sales hire in 2015.  With Evelyn as the primary seller, Ascent360 has emerged as the predominant customer data platform provider in the mid-market.   In her close to three-year tenure with Acent360, Evelyn signed on some of the organization’s largest client and led sales efforts through two rounds of VC funding.   As a member of the leadership team she worked collaboratively with other department heads and was a key contributor in product vision and strategy for the organization.  Evelyn defined Ascent360’s sales strategy, selected technology and vendors, codified sales processes and metrics as well as compensation and incentive modeling, defined competitive landscape and positioning, managed the weekly activities of the sales organization, stood up a demand generation team and defined the organizations expansion strategy in new categories.  One of the categories that Evelyn led expansion efforts in was the ski industry.  She is passionate about this industry and is excited to help Only Sky continue to expand in this category as well as in the mountain-based activity space. 

Evelyn loves the outdoors and takes advantage of the outdoor activities Colorado has to offer.  She enjoys traveling with her husband, Andrew, and visiting their family in New York when possible.  She studied Journalism & Mass Communication at St Bonaventure University, with minors in Marketing and French, and studied French language at The Institut Catholique de Paris.  Evelyn currently sits on the growth advisory board for Best Buddies Colorado and recently served as the Event Chair for their inaugural gala in the Denver market.
