Revenue Generation is never about one thing. It is the culmination of strategic listening, product development, customer insight, marketing prowess, sales skills, extraordinary execution and exceptional customer service. When it’s going wrong, you need to be able to find the glitch, when it’s going right, you need to find the release to go even faster. That’s where Rick Barrera’s expertise and intuition become invaluable.
