2001

Al Scarpa founded SGI Training with a handful of clients. In the early years, SGI focused on delivering the highest quality sales training, sales process consulting and leadership programs on the market.

2005

As the company expanded to a worldwide market and SGI’s professional network continued to grow, clients began inquiring if we could not only train top level executives, but if we had recommendations for qualified applicants. And thus our introduction into recruiting was born.

2020

Fast forward to the current day and recruitment of sales and marketing talent has become the cornerstone of SGI. Over the last decade we have placed hundreds of qualified sales and marketing candidates into senior positions in the global market.

On a personal note..
