"Steve Savage introduced our business in a number of Latin American markets. He did an outstanding job, building the business from zero to $15,000,000 in 4 years. He was responsible for recruiting the management team in each country and took a direct role in all elements of the sales and marketing strategies and tactics. His most outstanding strengths lie in his high energy level, sense of vision, relentless creativity, marketing and sales ability, people skills and a unique ability to articulate his thoughts and experiences.

"Steve Savage worked as a sales and marketing consultant and transformed our Eastern Region, which had flat sales for several years, into a fast-growing network of warehouses. He recruited, trained and managed salespeople for each warehouse. In each case, sales doubled or tripled within 18 months. He organized a nationwide telemarketing operation and gained 3,471 new customers in 12 months. This gave us $2,000,000 in new business per year. He not only gave us advice, but actually implemented his recommendations. He is the only consultant we have ever used that was actually able to mastermind and guide a project through from start to finish."

Mike Rippey, President
Radiator Express Warehouse
United States


"After three years of flat sales, in June we started Steve Savage’s new sales strategy. Our sales grew 18% in July, 31% in August and 56% in September. Our salespeople and sales managers are motivated and optimistic. What we liked about Steve’s consulting was that he not only gave us recommendations, but he implemented his plan."

Mario Simán, President
Unicomer
El Salvador


"I’ve known and admired Steve Savage for many years – he was my “sales manager” in College and one of the “star salesmen” of Southwestern.  He has continued to be a “star” in his subsequent businesses.  He is also an inspiring public speaker, who motivates and teaches salespeople, managers and corporate staff.  He is not an “ivory tower” theorist.  In his consulting he gets in the trenches with the salespeople and observes them with their customers.  When he recommends changes in marketing and sales strategy, they are based on a lifetime of building sales forces in several countries."

"His ideas are practical and achievable.  He recognizes that 80% of strategy is implementation and therefore doesn’t stop until his strategies are actionable, rewriting sales manuals, training sales people and changing corporate culture to make a business totally customer-friendly.  He has helped many companies increase their sales and profits throughout the Western Hemisphere."

Managing Director, Mesoamerica Investments


"Caffino retained Steve Savage to create and implement a strategic-expansion program. This encompassed market assessment, competitor analysis, real-estate development, entitlements-permitting and site development. He rapidly identified and provided in-depth analysis for over 300 potential sites for our drive-thru coffee bars. I found him to be incredibly focused and goal oriented – doing “whatever it takes” to get the job done."

Jeff Titterington, President
Caffino Drive-Thru Espresso Bars
