In 2004, Shayne Skaff took a gamble to leverage his successful career as a technology industry sales executive and help form MaintenanceNet, a high-tech startup company focused on streamlining and automating sales processes through the use of data-driven, cloud-based practices. Almost immediately, the gamble paid off, as Skaff was able to take advantage of his sales expertise and industry connections to put Carlsbad, Calif.-based MaintenanceNet on the map, enabling the young company to quickly attract leading global brands as customers. Cisco and Ingram Micro – two of the biggest forces in the worldwide technology sector -- were among the first customers to sign on with Skaff and MaintenanceNet. Fast forward 10 years to today, and it's evident that through Skaff’s ongoing sales leadership, MaintenanceNet has been able to deliver as promised, as the business relationships with these two powerhouses has not only continued, but has also grown exponentially across the globe. In addition, Skaff has brought other major global technology brands into the mix as MaintenanceNet customers, including Panasonic, APC, Comstor and Azlan Tech Data.

In the past year, Skaff’s global achievements for MaintenanceNet reached new heights. His top accomplishments include:
