From the Desk of Timothy Askew
Corporate Rain is the elite national company specializing in high-end new business initiation on an outsourced basis.
Our clients include Deloitte & Touche, Marsh & MacLennan, Con Edison, Wells Fargo, Gallup, Kroll, Grey Advertising, Ogilvy & Mather, AT&T, Fortis, PBS, The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Easter Seals, Marsh, Columbia University, Harvard University, and SunGard to mention but a few.
Corporate Rain is a discreet, closely held company that does not advertise and is ethics and reputation based.
In our seventeen years of existence we have succeeded for three primary reasons:
- We use high-level executives to do the sales initiation work (i.e. former VP’s of corporations, people with advanced degrees or owners of businesses);
- Our contracts are written to client convenience and flexibility;
- And most importantly, Corporate Rain emphasizes courtesy above success.
Our representation of our clients is invariably bespoke, discreet and highly customized.
Corporate Rain only hires executives with a moral center and people who truly care about other people and the world they live in.
Simply put, we are a golden rule company. We treat people like we would want to be treated. That said, however, we are fiercely aggressive proponents of our clients. The fact that these two statements are not a contradiction is quite unique to Corporate Rain International in the outsourcing business community.
We were listed as the top executive sales outsourcer for small business in 2003 by Pitney Bowes; we were one of Crain’s (NY) notable small businesses in 2004; we were finalists for Entrepreneur’s Hot 100 Companies in 2006; we have been ranked #3 globally by the Black Book of Outsourcing; and we are a member of the Inc. 5000.
Additionally, Corporate Rain is well-known for its specialty in highly effective trade show sales maximization, creating and following up on executive speeches and regional sales blitzes, as well as its laser accurate research division, DirectHitTM, and specialty in supporting non-profits.
