Sean Stormes leads The Third Door®, an international value design and demand creation firm. A nationally recognized authority on helping progressive leaders realize purpose-driven, “unprecedented value”-based Business Model Reinvention, he founded his company after a distinguished 27-year executive career rooted in senior level Operations, Sales and Marketing Management and Continuous Process Improvement.
After leading high-performing teams at the regional and national level, and driving $250 million in new business the last 15 years, he designed his company’s platform in response to traditional industry “best practices” that have become obsolete. T3D’s clients have realized double and triple-digit PRG within six to eight months of successful implementation, primarily because of his innate ability to help produce meaningful marketplace separation for businesses in highly competitive industries.
Sean has over 54,000 hours invested in T3D’s unique, proprietary framework and associated architecture. His client list includes the United States’ largest entrepreneurial organization, The Kauffman Foundation; the Midwest’s largest public utility, Kansas City Power and Light; Dimensional Innovations, a recognized leader in the Design-Build-Innovate arena; Redemption Plus, a national distributor of toys, games, and “insights that empower” to the family entertainment center industry; Mariner Wealth Advisors, a renowned financial services firm.; and Larson Binkley, Inc., a national mid-market engineering firm.
Sean is also a published author, sought after keynote speaker and nationally syndicated, bi-monthly guest columnist to the American Cities Business Journals, reaching over 300,000 business leaders across the top 43 national markets each year.
His new book, Clean Slate: Why leadership should trash their current business model, reject popular sales advice, operate like a startup, and leverage the new rules for prosperity to achieve explosive profitable revenue growth(PRG), debuts November 2015.
