The purpose.

We help entrepreneurs build successful businesses so they can enjoy life as they see fit... Including us.

The core values.

AMAZE.

We create awesome and will not settle for anything less.

We anticipate needs so that those we are serving don’t have to.

We set expectations and then we exceed them.

“Do what you do so well they will want to see it again. And bring their friends.”

— Walt Disney
Do.

We seize opportunity and uncover “how” as we go.

We are not above the work that needs to be done.

“Action breeds confidence and courage. Inaction breeds doubt and fear. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”

— Dale Carnegie
LEARN.

We relentlessly pursue truth and willingly follow wherever it may lead us.

We understand that there is more knowledge in front of us than there is behind us.

We try new things.

“The important thing is this: To be able, at any moment, to sacrifice what you are for what you can become.”

— Eric Thomas
Simplify.

We eliminate the unnecessary.

We only do that which moves the needle.

We make things that are easy to use.

“The most important thing is to keep the most important thing, the most important thing.”

— Somebody Smart
HUMBLE-IZE.

We embrace that we are only one piece of our success.

We focus on achievement rather than credit.

We win (and lose) as a team.

“Success is a lousy teacher. It lulls smart people into thinking they know what they’re doing.”

— Bill Gates
DO RIGHT.

We do the right thing. Always.

“Like your mom taught you.”

— Brad Martineau

The Team.

Brad
Brad Martineau
Chief Baller Word. My name is Brad Martineau (as you can see above…). Couple things you should know about me. I’m married with five kids, I love playing basketball, I’m addicted to fitted hats, and I’m pretty into the whole entrepreneur thing.

Back in the day I was the sixth employee at Infusionsoft and I spent over six years leading the product development efforts as a key member of the Infusionsoft leadership team. I had a blast and learned a ton while getting to rub shoulders with many very highly successful entrepreneurs.

I guess my specialty is simplifying the complex and bridging the gap between theory and execution. I love teaching and helping people understand difficult concepts. Nothing drives me nuts more than seeing someone NOT do something because they don’t know how.

I launched SixthDivision to provide Infusionsoft users a better source of coaching, training, and done for you services.
Dave
Dave Lee
Co-Founder Hola – I’m Dave and I don’t wear hats… ever. But I do wear a helmet when I hit the slopes or kitesurf if that counts for anything.  When I’m not doing that or helping businesses succeed, all other waking moments are spent with the fam… my beautiful wife and three young boys.

I’m an entrepreneur, marketer, optimist, and sales junkie. Once I call my shot, I make it happen. I built Infusionsoft’s marketing and sales teams and drove the business from $600k to over $17 million in recurring revenue, while creating the marketing automation for small business category. I then left to help create LeadMD, a marketing automation consulting company for larger businesses, and grew it from startup to over $3 million during an 18-month period.

Having driven growth and success for other organizations, in late 2011, I decided to return to my entrepreneurial roots and co-founded SixthDivision alongside Brad. It’s been an amazing ride and it just keeps getting better!

So here’s where I get to brag about my awards and stuff.  In 2008, I was named a Warrillow Marketer of the Year finalist.  I helped Infusionsoft achieve the prestigious Inc. 500 award three years in a row (2007, 2008, 2009).  Most recently, I have been featured on NBC, ABC, CBS, and Fox television affiliates speaking on marketing automation and small business success, and was quoted in Forbes Magazine as one of America’s PremierExperts™.  I’ve also been featured in CNBC, Reuters, MarketWatch, and Yahoo Finance, among other notable news outlets throughout the country.
Kendall
Kendall Walker
Evangelist Hey there! My name is Kendall. I’m married with five kids…oh wait, that’s Brad. Let me start over. I’m married with no kids (yet). Unless pets count. In that case, I have two really hairy kids named Bart and Leya.

I graduated from ASU (Go Devils!) with a BA in Journalism, and a double minor in Business and Communication. I originally started out doing the whole broadcast thing, but quickly realized that wasn’t my cup of tea. It was more like a gross cup of coffee. I’ve been working in marketing and sales since then, and wouldn’t have it any other way.

Unlike Bret, I suck at using chopsticks. But I rock at using forks. That should count for something, right? You will never see me drink water out of a straw. Ever. It tastes way too weird that way. I can also recite all 50 states in alphabetical order. I’ll show you if you’re lucky.
Chase
Chase Frost
Chief Rainmaker My name is Chase. I’m Faithdiamond’s happy husband (yes, that’s my wife’s real name). We have a dog named Axel, and a goldfish named Gideon. I have been working/selling in or around Infusionsoft for just over 2½ years, and I have loved the journey! I’m passionate about small businesses, helping them grow, and watching them succeed! One day I’ll put this knowledge and passion into a business of my own.

I have followed Clint to two different jobs now, and I’m suffering from a severe case of beard-envy. The picture just doesn’t do that thing justice! Like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg, I’m a college dropout who is getting his PhD in the streets!

Outside of work, I’m an assistant wrestling coach at a local high school, and I absolutely love it! I enjoy traveling, outdoors, shooting, working out, and relaxing with my small family.
Jeff
Jeff Shatswell
Sensei

What’s up?! I’m Jeff – most of my time these days is spent raising 5 kids with my beautiful wife Ginette. I say “with”, however between work and running the kids to and from various soccer venues, we pretty much just throw each other high-fives on those rare occasions our paths cross.

I love being a dad! I also enjoy reading, cooking, and just relaxing with the family.

After graduating college, I spent 5 years with Sandvik Special Metals, a large-scale manufacturing plant, making titanium and zirconium tubing. This was a valuable experience for a SoCal boy thinking he was pretty smart. If you have never had the privilege of directing union employees...add that to your bucket list!

I quickly realized I needed much more; I needed more rewarding work...more $$$. Time to chase the coveted dollar — Hello mortgage business!

I come to SixthDivision after spending 13 years in the mortgage biz, many of which were spent strategizing within Infusionsoft. I began with cold-calling and eventually worked my way up as part-owner of a large mortgage office.

Now, if you haven’t cold-called as a commissioned-only employee in a completely new role and industry while retaining the responsibility to feed and house your family…well, add that to your bucket list too!

I have now realized money is a means and not an end: Time for more rewarding work…more meaningful work! I am excited about this opportunity to spend time with entrepreneurs and to help them achieve more. Lets get to work!

Alan
Alan Griffiths
Jedi

Hey guys, my name is Alan. I’m husband to an amazing wife and father to coolest little dude on the planet. I’m a pretty easygoing guy that loves spending time with family, being active, sports, and movies. I’m not a big fan of being stuck in neutral, gotta keep moving forward. I believe that every day is an opportunity to learn and grow and I want to make the most of it.

I have a BS in IT with a concentration in Business Systems Analysis. I enjoy figuring out how things work, breaking them, and then rebuilding them to work better. Can’t is my least favorite word in the dictionary. I love serving and helping others succeed. I’m excited for the opportunity to help entrepreneurs reach levels of success that until now were unimaginable. Let’s take it to the next level!

Clint
Clint Hosman
Executionist

Howdy, I’m Clint, father of two girls, husband to a wife who doesn’t know the meaning of no, and I like keeping life as simple as possible, right down to my clothing, tee shirt and jeans, all day, everyday. Lets take something complicated and make it usable!

I love working with clients to translate their dreams on to the canvas of the worlds best sales and marketing software built specifically for small business. After two years working at Infusionsoft I made the jump to Sixth Division because come on, who wouldn’t want to work with this line up? I have an MBA with an emphasis in global management, so if in addition to your marketing needs, if you happen to have a globe or two hanging around and need them managed, I’m your man.

When I’m not at work I spend time preparing to scare boys my girls will some day want to date. I run, mountain bike, travel, all that outdoorsy kind of stuff you would expect from a man with a beard.

Corey
Corey Thomas
The Rockstar

How’s it going? I’m Corey. I am a marketing expert, music lover, and giant nerd.

I’ve spent the better part of my career working with companies like Zappos, Michael Gerber, Glazer Kennedy and others to help them better implement marketing automation. Now I get to pass that experience along to our Sixth Division customers to help them grow their businesses.

When I’m not working, I am spending time with my lady, my family, and my friends. There is also a good chance that I am playing video games, cosplaying as Tony Stark, or playing basketball or golf. Yes I have been to a Star Wars convention and I am personal friends with Boba Fett. Troublesome clients usually end up frozen in carbonate.

Erin
Erin Thomas
The Glue

Hello everyone! I’m Erin. A few things to know about me….I love life! I LOVE meeting people and learning their story. I’m a mom of four AMAZING kids. My favorite pastime is eating good food with family and friends! I love to bake and cook. In fact, my nickname is the “cookie queen”….and if you’re around me long enough, I just might make you my famous chocolate chip cookies! I also love to read and hike, but not at the same time! ;)

I graduated from ASU with a BS in Design, but have tried my hand at a lot of different things from tax prep work to playground equipment sales all while being CEO for my family. I’ve been a life-long multi-tasker and that’s when I do my best. That’s why my job as the “glue” here at Sixth Division is the perfect job for me.

So, when you find yourself walking in the door at SixthDivision, I’ll be the first to say hi…and maybe with a chocolate chip cookie in hand! ;)

Jordan
Jordan Abaroa
The Office-Linebacker

Hey! I'm Jordan and I'm excited to meet you. I graduated from a small school, from the tundra that is Northern Minnesota with a degree in Marketing Communication. While getting my degree I played collegiate football, learned how to say "aboot", and found an odd desire to start watching hockey. I'm a normal American that starts my day by waking up and trying to get my Tasmanian devil of a son, Thane, ready for the day, kiss my beautiful wife, Taylor, goodbye, and head to work to make dreams come true. Yes, you can think of me as a bearded, jean-wearing fairy godmother if you would like. But all seriousness aside, I love coming to work and helping business make their dreams come true. But the best part of my day is spending time with my wife and son, and teaching him all the things my wife doesn't want him to learn.

Matt
Matt Merrill
The Man Behind the Curtain

Hey there. My name is Matt. I'm a father of 3 wonderful kids and husband to a talented wife.

I've been in the Infusionsoft space for over 10 years now and have played many different roles ranging from phone support, to consultant, to programmer. I've spent the bulk of my career in the web development space creating web applications and websites.

I love the creation process. I have found that I enjoy creating and building tools that help people automate the mundane aspects of their life and business so that they can find time to spend doing things that they love.

After my day at the office, I enjoy spending time with my family playing games, watching movies, and battling Darth Vader (my 4 year old son). I love being in the outdoors, working with my hands and tinkering with little side projects.

Chadron
Chadron Garrison
The Perfectionist

Yo! I'm Chadron, father of one amazing little girl, at the age of two has already mastered the art of getting anything she wants. Husband to an absolutely amazing woman of 16 years!

Like Corey, I'm also a big nerd, whether it be spending hours playing video games or buying all the latest and greatest gadgets.

I'm a huge fan of football and I've been a Miami Dolphins fan for the last 27 years. During the season you will find me on the couch watching football while trying to keep track of all 5 fantasy football leagues that I'm a part of each year.

I received my education from the school of hard knocks after leaving school in 9th grade. I'm a natural leader and go-getter, starting out managing AT&T store and opening and closing new locations with teams of up to 25 sales reps. After 4 years at AT&T I joined Infusionsoft and quickly became passionate about helping small businesses conquer the chaos of their day to day by implementing automation in their business. After 6 years at Infusionsoft I joined the most talented team on the planet here at SixthDivision.

Well, that's a little about me. I am super excited to meet you!

Preston
Preston Smith
Marketing Ninja

Heyo. My name is Preston and I don't like nicknames. I'm married to a perfect women (Mindi) and have 4 awesome kids (Jude, Koen, Miles and Margo). I love hiking, gardening and spending time traveling with my family. In a past life, I directed, performed and taught improv comedy...someday I'll go back to it once I figure out how to make more than 50 cents an hour doing it.

I studied Marketing at ASU but learned most of my skills on the street (or on the web) through trial and error. I spent 3 years at Infusionsoft before I came over to SixthDivision.

The book that has influenced my life the most is "Loving what is" by Byron Katie and I've wasted months of my life watching Alan Watts videos on YouTube.

Jake
Jake Talbert
The Polymath

Hey there, I'm Jake. I am the father to two amazing boys who are 6 and 2. I somehow have been able to to keep my wife Sara from going crazy for over 10 years now.

I keep myself as busy as possible. I spend time with my family, running Disney Marathons, and traveling. Like Preston, I direct, teach, and perform improv comedy (just for a different theater than Preston).

I am a super nerd and you can expect to see me in a Star Wars shirt every day of the week. I am your one stop if you need information on Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel, DC, or BIG watches. I generally sit on 5-10 panels at Phoenix Comicon.

I love helping people achieve their dreams. As a former Infusionsoft employee and user, I want to help you get the most out of your system while making it easier for you to run your business.
