Andrew founded Clozd because he was dumbfounded that only 20% of sales organizations conduct win-loss or post-decision interviews. During his career in sales, he learned firsthand that most sales reps are wrong about why they win and lose deals, making it difficult for new hires to replicate the successes of their more tenured peers. This realization developed into a passion for win-loss analysis and led to the founding of Clozd.
Prior to Clozd, Andrew spent nine years working for Qualtrics, a global leader in feedback and survey research technology. During his tenure there, the company grew from 40 to 1300 employees. He started in account management, setting the record for most first-year sales in company history. He was immediately promoted to sales management and in 2012 led the top-performing sales team at Qualtrics.
In 2013, Andrew was asked by the Qualtrics founders to develop and launch a new product called Qualtrics Target Audience. In addition to overseeing product development, sales, and marketing, Andrew served as a consultant in the design of research programs for hundreds of well-known brands including American Eagle, Porsche, Google, AutoDesk, Capital One, Liberty Mutual, Spotify, etc.
Andrew holds a B.S. in Business Management from Brigham Young University where he received the prestigious Edwin S. Hinckley Scholarship, graduating Magna Cum Laude.
