Rebby Sutherland grew up in a small town an hour and a half northwest of Philadelphia, PA called Wyomissing, PA. Growing up in a small town emphasized the importance of one-on-one communication, and relationship building. Wyomissing is the type of place where everyone knows everyone, which allowed Rebby to gain confidence in herself to accomplish what she wanted in business and in life.
In 2001, Rebby moved to Atlanta, GA and attended Emory University. At Emory, Rebby played Varsity Tennis, was a member of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority, and majored in Economics and Psychology. Six months prior to her May graduation from Emory University, Rebby started looking for a job that would allow her to gain real world experience for her future goals. She was offered a sales and marketing position, representing Bellsouth. She accepted the position, and started working part-time in her final semester at Emory.
Rebby was happily surprised to find she excelled in the role, and enjoyed meeting new clients on a daily basis. After a year and a half, Rebby was responsible for training 35 highly productive sales reps for the same role. In November of 2006, 11 of the people that Rebby trained in the Atlanta office followed her to St. Louis, MO, where she opened up an outsourced sales and marketing company. Her success at Bellsouth prompted an opportunity for her to open her own office in St. Louis, MO, where she represented Bellsouth’s partner, AT&T.
“We were committed to each other and to our goals”, says Rebby
That commitment allowed the team to totally exceed all expectations AT&T had set for them, which then stimulated more opportunity. Over the last 10 years, Rebby and the team have grown from one location with 11 people to numerous offices with over 400 employees overall.
With all that she has accomplished over the last 10 years, Rebby isn’t stopping yet! She has huge goals to accomplish, and wants to continue to grow as a company to provide our clients with the right results. In her free time, Rebby still loves playing tennis, visiting her family in PA, and traveling.
