Unraveling the Power of Revenue Operations with Tutt Mrasek from Fiat RevOps

Episode 151

Sales and RevOps are the lifeblood of successful startups (and companies in general), and because of that high-stakes nature, there is a lot of fear and confusion on how to set up and run a sales process in the best way. Our guest today is an expert on the RevOps experience, Tutt Mrasek of Fiat RevOps, who has a nearly two-decade career building and guiding companies through creating sales pipelines. And now his company Fiat is also getting into VC investing with Fiat Ventures.

Tutt is a fun person to talk to about all things sales, bringing enthusiasm, charm, and insight to the hows and whats of the sales process.
