I’m the Chief Operating Officer/Co-Founder of StealthEnomics® a member of the Official Forbes Coaches Council, a former Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the Maryland Innovation Center, an award-winning entrepreneur, business launch designer, executive advisor, podcast guest, blogger, and author of 24 Transformation, Resilience, and Performance courses who is passionate about the complex enterprise technology sales profession.



A little more than two decades. That’s the time it’s taken to personally add nearly $1Bn of new software sales & solutions revenues with 5-year cost savings to the bottom line of my former employers and customers in the Fortune 500, Global 1000, academic research institutions, US federal agencies, and public sector entities.

Today I leverage a compilation of ai tools, an evolving knowledge base, and my team to author complex technology sales processes, train sales professionals, and design go-to-market strategies (GTM) that support startup equity funding approval processes, successful mergers & acquisitions, and IPO exits. I was there at the:

$1Bn acquisition of Acquia  (SaaS, DXP, AI) Vista Equity Partner Group

$17M acquisition of Indicative Software (BSM) Nimsoft

$80M IPO exit of Informax (genomic software.)

Perhaps, I can “be there” with you.

Like millions of people, I was once laid off thru no fault of my own while I was at the “top of my game” (or so I thought.) I was a middle-aged technology professional who had been renting his time, expertise, and education to an employer who judged me to be disposable and my receipt… was a paystub. I had no equity/ownership over anything I produced and while I was afraid, I wasn’t paralyzed by fear.

That’s when I launched Chris Bell 3rd & Company – a global technology sales consulting agency, won the Melinda Emerson $25,000 Entrepreneurs Challenge then profitably shut down and exited the company to focus on StealthEnomics® while intermittently employed with SaaS companies.


In an era of uncertainty and rapid change; where synthetic AI tools are promptly delivering sterile results from our inquiries… I’ve remained committed to maintaining an authentic, inspirational sanctuary at StealthEnomics® where Wisdom can be introduced to the inspired thoughts and challenges of ideation-stage visionaries, working professionals, and the recent unemployed in personal, one-on-one sessions.

Concurrently, I’ll continue to learn, promote, share, and advance the benefits of technology solutions that are congruent with my personal life purpose: to improve the human condition.
