Founder and President @ Vector Firm
Chris Peterson has over 20 years of experience in sales leadership, with a focus on security integrators, security manufacturers, and managed service providers. Chris started Vector Firm in 2010 as a provider of outsourced sales leadership. However, he quickly learned that the value of his services were in the strategies, processes, and tools that he created. Within a year, he shifted the focus to one of sales and sales management consulting, training, and professional speaking. Vector Firm has worked over 70 clients since 2010, on projects ranging from two-day strategic sales planning sessions to multi-year retained engagements. Before starting Vector Firm, Chris spent seven years as a vice president of sales and marketing on a national and global scale. It was during these years that he tailored and refined his sales leadership strategies into real processes and tools that resonated with sales professionals. In the last few years, Chris has become well known throughout the security industry and has been part of the successful growth of dozens of the industry’s top performing companies. Chris is a graduate from the University of Florida, with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. He lives in Downtown Orlando with his wife Shannon and daughter Manhattan. Chris is a season ticket holder of the Orlando Magic basketball and the Florida Gators football teams. He enjoys working out, playing golf, and spending time in his backyard with his family and friends. He and Shannon have a passion for travel, with recent trips to South Africa, Southern California, and Ireland.
