About Us

A career sales professional, Cindy Hazen enjoys over 35 years of involvement in the sales field. Starting at 8 years old selling Girl Scout cookies and graduating to working as a sales representative in commercial furnishings products to professional services, she has truly worked in all aspects of the selling world. After working in several field sales jobs in her career, she understands what it takes to be successful in the sales world.

After graduating Cum Laude with a Mass Communications BA, Cindy worked as a career “road warrior” sales representative for three different companies in 20 years. Her 15 years with Hunt Manufacturing combined with her various other selling roles in her career provided a deep understanding of the sales process from several different perspectives. Two years of selling commercial furnishings products to architects, designers and commercial dealers expanded the selling skill set to include long sales cycles and relationship selling at its height.

In 1999, Sales Executives was launched by Cindy and her partner to address a deep void in the Middle Tennessee market- no recruitment firms specializing only in the career of sales. Sales Executives experienced a warm welcome from local corporate clients that quickly expanded the firm into a national recruiting firm. Located in Brentwood, TN, with one year of the company’s conception, the searches became national with successful placements from Los Angeles to Boston, Massachusetts.

Today, Sales Executives offers recruiting services throughout the US in many different industries. The specialty is sales and management and the goal is matching the right sales professional to the right job with the right company.
