Boston. One of my absolute favourite cities in the USA.

What comes to mind when you think of Beantown? Is it The Red Sox? The Boston Tea Party? Faneuil Hall? Harvard? Good Will Hunting? Or perhaps it’s “Cheers” … where everybody knows your name!

Over the last few months we’ve shone the spotlight on several US cities. Not to promote them as a tourist destination but to highlight some of the country’s best talent.

For example, maybe you’ve got your eye set on one of the Top 50 C-Level Marketing Professionals in Seattle, the Top 50 Female Full Stack Developers in New York City, the Top 50 Female Front-End Engineers in San Francisco, the Top 50 Female UI/UX Designers in Austin, Texas, or the Top 50 Hadoop Developers in the Bay Area.

Today it’s Boston. One of the oldest cities in the USA, the largest in New England, and home to some very talented C-Level Sales Professionals.

Wherever you believe your ideal candidate might be ‘hiding’, at RecruitLoop, we’ve created a very specific sourcing algorithm and process to help you find them, anywhere in the world. We call it Sourcing as a Service. Sourcing is the process of identifying the specific characteristics of your ideal candidate, then finding as many people who meet that criteria as possible.

Here are the Top 50 C-Level Sales Professionals in Boston for your perusal based on their experience, qualifications and digital footprint.
