"Selling. No Problem. If you dropped in the middle of downtown with nothing but my phone, I would sell my way to prosperity," said Clint Emerson.
Early in Clint's career, he was a sales executive for Lanier/Harris Corp. He used his success as a springboard into the executive ranks. He became the turnaround country manager for the Caribbean, then Australia, and finally South America.
But the time came to come home and find a business he could call his own. He bought CableQuest in Ball Ground, Georgia. It had $2mm in sales and was losing $500k per year. It is now growing 40% per year and is profitable. In fact, Clint just made his first acquisition.
Clint's faith in Jesus Christ is the foundation for his company's culture. He has a unique formula for hiring, developing, and giving back to his community. His use of company chaplains and a pastor are something I've not seen in any business.
