Biography

It’s incredibly rare to find a business leader who can be both a top personal performer and a leading sales team manager. Emmie Brown is one of those people. As a senior partner for Southwestern Consulting, Emmie co-leads one of the company’s largest organizations, with coaches across the United States and Europe. As a sales psychology expert and executive-level sales and leadership coach, she personally empowers some of the most successful company leaders across numerous industries to develop processes, build great teams, and maximize overall performance.

In 2020, Emmie was promoted to President of Southwestern Speakers where she is responsible for developing strategic growth plans, coordinating business development, and leading the certification process for a premier group of authors, experts, thought leaders, and dynamic keynote speakers.

Emmie began her impressive career with Southwestern more than 2 decades ago. After graduating Summa Cum Laude from The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and joining Southwestern Advantage, she spent 9 summers recruiting numerous top-ranking sales teams. During her time as a respected District Sales Manager, Emmie ran hundreds of group interviews, conducted more than a thousand one-on-one interviews for potential salespeople, and earned a spot on the coveted Wall of Greats for recruiting some of the most successful teams in company history.

Since joining Southwestern Consulting, Emmie has been one of the company’s top salespeople, coaches, trainers, and speakers. A practitioner of what she teaches, Emmie is an ultra-performer and is consistently in the top 1% in personal sales production, even as a producing manager. Her success led her to spend four years on a national tour, training sales organizations around the country. She interviewed and spoke to more than 550 teams, learning extensively about what creates breakdowns in communication, why salespeople don’t make the sale, and the reasons organizations don’t reach their potential.

In addition to her real-world experience, Emmie has a psychology degree, giving her unique insights that help her clients more effectively communicate their point of view, be more persuasive in selling, and motivate their team to action.

Emmie permanently resides in Nashville, Tennessee with her amazing husband, Dave, incredibly handsome son, Dawson, lovely daughter, Cadence Lane, and brilliant “blond” Labrador, Theo.
