Release: Janek Performance Group Named Top 20 Sales Training Company for Sixth Straight Year

LAS VEGAS, NV, May 8, 2019—Janek Performance Group has been named a Top 20 Sales Training Company for the sixth consecutive year by Selling Power. This accolade is awarded to the world’s best-in-class sales training companies that excel in helping sales leaders improve the performance of their sales teams. The list appears in the May 2019 issue of Selling Power magazine, which will be available to view online starting May 8.

“It’s an honor to continue our tradition of recognition by Selling Power and others,” said Justin Zappulla, managing partner of Janek Performance Group. “Winning this award attests to the consistent results we provide our clients and aligns with our mission in helping them exceed their sales goals.”

According to Selling Power publisher and founder Gerhard Gschwandtner, sales training is a key area of competitive differentiation for B2B sales teams.

“It’s no secret that buyers control much of the buying process,” says Gschwandtner. “Any company that wants to stay competitive needs to offer their sales teams proper training on how to succeed and thrive in an increasingly complex, challenging selling environment. This is easier said than done. The companies on our Top 20 Sales Training Companies list represent the best of the best, and sales leaders should leverage this list to find the best partner for their unique training needs.”

All companies on the Top 20 list submitted a comprehensive application that included a detailed listing of their offerings for both training and retention, innovative solutions and services they have developed, and their company’s unique contributions to the sales training marketplace.

The main criteria used when comparing applicants and selecting the companies to include on this year’s list were:

  1. Depth and breadth of training offered
  2. Innovative offerings (training courses, methodology, or delivery methods)
  3. Contributions to the sales-training market
  4. Strength of client satisfaction

Selling Power magazine editors say the companies on the 2019 Top 20 Sales Training Companies list represent the best potential to help sales teams improve their performance and remain competitive in any selling environment. This is also the first year the list has included five honorable mentions. See the list at

The award adds to Janek’s other 2019 accolades – Stevie awards in Sales Training and Sales Consulting Practice of the Year for the fourth straight year, awards in Change Management and Instructional Design from the Association of Talent Development, and its third consecutive listing as a Top 20 Sales Training Company by Training Industry.

“Our research-based, field-tested methodology simply works, and to win this award acknowledges this fact,” Janek Performance Group managing partner Nick Kane said. “At the heart of our sales training philosophy is the customization and attention to detail required for every individual client’s unique business situation. We also owe our successes to our entire team – the trainers, instructional designers, the learning team, the marketing squad, and our support staff.”
