As Bob Alexander finished competing in a national black belt karate tournament and within the same week completed his eighteenth marathon in New York City, he said, “I’m tired.”
While this is not a particularly startling comment, just reading the accomplishments of Bob Alexander fatigues most people. Bob has excelled in almost every aspect of his life. As an outstanding high school student who consistently won honors, Bob carried that tradition into his college career where he excelled as a dean’s list student, karate instructor and brigade commander in ROTC.
Bob’s desire to help other people led him into the field of education. He was a winning teacher, coach, and high school administrator who learned from experience the challenges students and teachers face. He was selected as an “Outstanding Young Man of America” in recognition of his professional achievements and his superior leadership ability combined with exceptional service to his community.
To fulfill his goals for personal growth, Bob left education to take on the challenge of sales. During his first year of selling he was Rookie Salesman of the Year and broke the all time rookie sales record at his company. He was soon promoted to area sales manager where he was recognized for being the second highest producer in the nation. His leadership skills enabled his area to become the top producing group in the nation. After being promoted to regional sales manager and then senior regional sales manager, Bob continued to receive accolades and awards. His “top producing regional manager in the nation” award, and top producing “senior regional manager in the nation” award resulted in him being named the company’s national sales manager.
As national sales manager, Bob prospected, hired, trained, motivated, scheduled conferences, selected product lines, established sales territories, and helped sales people develop and achieve goals for themselves and their organization. Because of his excellence in this position, Bob soon became vice-president of sales, where he helped literally hundreds of people achieve more than they ever thought possible.
Zig Ziglar invited Bob to join his team in 1988 because Bob is a proven winner. After only sixteen months, he became the number one salesperson at the Zig Ziglar Corporation by setting a rookie sales record that still stands today. In 1990, he was promoted to general sales manager where his leadership skills and knowledge of the sales industry helped expand corporate sales.
Today, as President of The Alexander Resource Group, Bob continues traveling the country sharing his knowledge and experience, helping salespeople, customer service representatives, sales managers, business executives, and educators improve their attitudes, develop self-confidence, set specific goals, and live their dreams.
