Our story

sales-i was established back in 2008, and we have since grown into a worldwide company. We blossomed from a simple idea from two salespeople who are now our co-founders, Paul Black and Kevin McGirl. A few years later, a dozen or so award wins, thousands of loyal customers and a skilled team that is truly second to none. Follow our journey below to discover our history in more detail and we hope that you’ll help us create the future of sales-i.
