“Our sales colleagues are the foundation the relationships we build with clients,” said Alan Sikora, CEO of First American. “Their expertise, combined with their genuine passion to see our clients succeed, has led to our company’s consistent growth.”

First American’s philosophy includes hiring and retaining top talent, building a nationally recognized culture and performance-based incentives. As a result, the sales trajectory has shown steep growth during the last several years. The company grew from $412 million in sales in 2015 to $1.4 billion in 2019.

“I have the privilege of working with the finest and most professional salesforce anywhere in the world,” said Mike Wiedemer, National Sales Director for First American Equipment Finance. “When the world changed due to the pandemic, our professional sales team has remained focused on serving our clients and meeting them where they are.”

To determine the rankings, Selling Power focused on data from the following areas: customer growth and retention; hiring, compensation, sales training and advancement; and company recognition and reputation.
