April 27, 2015 — WALTHAM, Mass. — The American Association of Inside Sales Professionals (AA-ISP) named Mark Ruthfield, ZoomInfo’s Vice President of Sales, as one of the AA-ISP Top 25 Most Influential Inside Sales Professionals in 2015 for the fourth consecutive year. There are currently over 6,000 members across 42 chapters in the U.S., Canada, Europe, India, Israel, Turkey, and Sri Lanka.

“I’m honored to be recognized for this award,” said Ruthfield. “In my time at ZoomInfo, I’ve had the opportunity to use our own products to drive growth and increase revenue. In fact, ZoomInfo’s 2014 revenue results were the highest in company history from a sales results and profitability standpoint. One of my biggest goals is to continue this trend and help my team achieve significant results. I’ve learned a lot from my colleagues at the AA-ISP, and am grateful for their continued support.”

“Mark deserves this recognition,” said Yonatan Stern, ZoomInfo’s Founder, CEO, and Chief Scientist. “He was able to build a team that consistently grew sales 30% year over year for the last three years, and the pace is accelerating in 2015. In addition, he was able to do so while continually reducing cost of sales, keeping his team excited, and with minimal turnover of his people. Mark is the most organized and dedicated manager I have ever met.”

“It is an honor to recognize Mark as this year’s recipient of The Top 25 Most Influential Inside Sales Professional Awards. Mark has proven his dedication and commitment to advancing the profession of inside sales, which is the mission of the AA-ISP,” stated Bob Perkins, Founder and CEO. “We are confident that Mark will continue to have an impact on the inside sales community for years to come,” stated Perkins.

Started in 2010, the AA-ISP Top 25 Most Influential Sales Professionals recognizes individuals who have been instrumental in leading the profession.
