In the first three years of Hillis taking on the role of CEO, he led the company through many company changes that resulted in an improved cash position by more than $30 million – from a deficit to a profit.

As a junior at the University of Tennessee, Hillis broke the more than 160-year-old, all-time sales record for Southwestern Advantage, making a profit of more than $100,000 in 14 weeks.

Hillis is the co-author of Navigate 2.0: Selling the Way People Like to Buy, and the co-creator of the sales training curriculum Top Producer’s Edge, Manager’s Edge, and Executive Edge. His latest co-authored book, Redefining Possible, was released in January 2021 and is an Amazon best-seller.
