Edison, NJ – August 14, 2019 – Opengear (, a leading provider of solutions that deliver secure, resilient network access and automation to critical IT infrastructure, is pleased to announce that it has been named #15 on the Selling Power 50 Best Companies to Sell For list. Each year, the corporate research team at Selling Power magazine assembles and publishes its list of the 50 Best Companies to Sell For.

Key to this win has been a focus on providing the latest tools and training, as well as offering a work environment and incentives that surpass the industry norm. The recent President’s Club in Cabo San Lucas celebrated the achievements of more than 90% of the Americas sales team. Opengear’s partner program – which was awarded Five Stars by CRN – continues to forge strategic relationships with partners, and the Opengear Partner Portal continues to expand. The Americas sales team has achieved consistent Year-over-Year growth for the last eleven years.

“Our sales team is one of the best in the industry,” said Todd Rychecky, VP Sales Americas, Opengear. “In the past few years, we have placed significant focus on enhancing our selling practices for both our customer and channel funnels. This sales team have met every challenge we have thrown their way, and this award is a testament to their success.”

Opengear is joined by Merrill, Whirlpool and ADP on the list, which encompasses companies of all sizes – with sales forces ranging from fewer than 100 salespeople to companies with sales-force numbers in the thousands. Honorees are determined based on information gathered via a comprehensive application with detailed sections covering three broader categories:

  • Compensation and Benefits
  • Hiring, Sales Training, and Sales Enablement
  • Customer Retention

This is the 19th consecutive year the list has appeared in the magazine. Selling Power magazine founder and publisher Gerhard Gschwandtner says it is vital to recognize companies that are creating excellent sales teams today.

“Successful sales teams know how to embrace change,” says Gschwandtner. “That could be in the form of technology or in the form of process. Each organization featured on the 50 Best Companies to Sell For list represents an elite, agile selling environment that understands how to lead in their market.”
