If you follow our Sales Humor page on Instagram, or have spent time consuming sales content on the platform, then you've probably come across Corporate Bro. The intentionally-over-the-top, but strangely charming character is played by Ross Pomerantz, a salesman-turned-comedian from California, who's amassed a loyal following over the last eight years, bringing his brand of humor to the masses, and giving the world a brutally honest take on what it's really like to work in sales in the 21st century.
We wanted to get to know the man behind the character, so we sat down for an interview with Ross, who told us about his journey from tech sales to tech sales comedy. The following interview has been edited for clarity, and shortened for this newsletter. The full version will be published on our forthcoming website in early 2022.
