Datasite Ranks #3 on Selling Power's Annual "50 Best Companies to Sell For" List in 2020

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – July 8, 2020 – Datasite, the leading SaaS-technology provider for the global M&A community, has been recognized by Selling Power magazine as a top three company on the publication’s annual ‘50 Best Companies to Sell For’ list. This is the fourth consecutive year Datasite has placed on the list, moving up one spot to No. 3 this year from No. 4 last year.

“It’s an honor to be named a ‘Top Company to Sell For’ year-after-year by Selling Power,” said Todd Albright, global chief revenue officer for Datasite. “Over the last several years, we’ve transformed to become a digital disruptor and high-growth SaaS-based technology company, combining decades of experience with the best people and the best technology to revolutionize the M&A lifecycle. Supported by exceptional client service and innovative, AI-powered technology, our sales team is well equipped to lead the M&A industry beyond the virtual data room to a digitally enabled future, even as many of them work remotely during this unprecedented time.” 

Each year, the corporate research team at Selling Power magazine assembles and publishes its list of the “50 Best Companies to Sell For.” This is the 20th consecutive year the list has appeared in Selling Power magazine. To gather data, the Selling Power research team issued a comprehensive application with detailed sections covering:

  • Compensation and benefits;
  • Hiring, sales training, and sales enablement;
  • Customer retention

Response sections were also provided for companies to spotlight information about their sales organization and workforce culture that would add additional background for the research team to fine-tune the rankings.

In addition to providing innovative sales enablement and training, which has included how to work and how to deliver engaging client demonstrations remotely, Datasite was recognized for providing generous benefits. The benefits, which include paid family leave, unlimited vacation time and sales incentive programs and contests, are key to the company’s strategy to retain and attract top talent.

Selling Power magazine founder and publisher Gerhard Gschwandtner says this list is a critical tool for sales professionals to evaluate their options in an era of extreme change.

“Recent shakeups around the globe mean more top sales talent is available to hire, and potential candidates need tools to help weigh options and guide their career choices,” he says. “Each company on this list has created a winning sales culture in its own unique way, with the right tools in place to support a growth-oriented sales career over the long haul.”
