About David

From his early days tinkering with test tubes and differential equations as an award-winning scientist, to leading top performing sales teams at high growth tech start-ups, David Priemer brings a lifelong passion for uncovering the hidden insights in the world around us, to his practice as the founder of Cerebral Selling. Often referred to as the "Sales Professor", David helps organizations supercharge revenue growth, people development, and culture by combining core principles of science, empathy, and execution. The result; an empowered organization of modern sellers who think like their customers, learn fast, and win! Previously David held several executive leadership positions at leading technology companies including Salesforce, where he was the Vice President of Commercial Sales and creator of the Sales Leadership Academy program.

David holds a B.Sc. in Chemistry and Atmospheric Science from York University and a Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Toronto. When he's not thinking about Sales, David loves to cook, write, and spend some quality family time with his wife and three girls.
