Experience to Get the Job Done
Breakout Business Coaching, owned by Rob Keranen, leverages a combination of two key successful career experiences to help your company:
- As a growth oriented small business owner, utilizing the proven systems of EOS®, I can understand my client issues and how to overcome them
- Being a long time information technology consulting executive, I am very familiar with the power of process and technology to achieve your goals
That combined background provides true appreciation of the challenges and the solutions for starting and growing a business as well as successfully operating it as the business matures.
My entrepreneurial background started early at the age of thirteen with the ownership of a strawberry field, where I managed my own crew of pickers to gain more profit than picking for some larger farmer.
After college, I partnered with three others in establishing a life insurance agency in Central Oregon. We successfully sold the agency in order to start a software sales company which grew to over a million dollars in sales over two years. I gained valuable experience about what to do and what not to do in growing a business.
Having been exposed to the huge benefits of hardware and software, I left our software company and parlayed that into a successful career in the information technology field moving from direct sales to corporate sales to VP of Sales, and then worked as part of a acquisition team member for a regional computer company.
In the late 90’s I managed the Portland office as Director of Sales for a multinational consulting company growing it’s revenues from the 52nd ranked branch to 4th over a four year period.
Between 2006 and 2015, I produced sales in excess of $4 Million annually across multiple industries for this same company, earning annual achievement recognition. During this time period, I was promoted from Account Executive to Client Partner, and then Managing Director where I ran a 400 person, $50 Million sales operation. Afterward, I was promoted to Director of North America for Strategic Partnerships serving as a member of the company’s Global Solutions Team.
