The Great Tom Parker
Tom Parker-one of the best creative sales reps ever. Richard Williams, Jim Braddy, and many others, including me had Mr. Parker as a rep and friend. He was notable not just for his skill in selling but for his preferred and refined skill of orchestrating a great time. He had some great qualities but my all time favorite, was the ability to take control. He never asked anyone, "what do you want to do tonight?". He just told you what you were going to do. It was a gift. He made all the arrangements, you followed, had a blast and lived to tell about it (that was the hard part). I lost a lot of liver with that guy.
