BELLINGHAM, Wash. - Oct. 1, 2015 - PRLog -- The Sales Lead Management Association (SLMA) announced that nominations are open for its annual election to recognize the “40 Most Inspiring Leaders in Sales Lead Management.” SLMA CEO, Jim Obermayer, said, “Inspirational leaders in sales lead management challenge the status quo and bring entrepreneurial thinking to software and web applications. An inspiring leader can be a department manager, an author, a speaker, a company president, an events manager, a communications specialist, or an innovative thinker in lead generation companies. He or she might work at an agency, a software company (CRM, marketing automation, business intelligence or artificial intelligence applications, telemarketing, etc.), or one of the thousands of vendors serving the lead management discipline."
