    Advice- CEO/champion left company, mid sales cycle

    I got some bummer news, I spoke with the head of operations and met with the CEO of a prospective client who was interested in moving forward with our services. We met at a conference, and then afterwards the CEO pushed me off two times, citing IT problems until finally he sent me the message below.

    Question for the group:, how would you guys go about next steps here?

    he gave me his phone number, I think there’s nothing left to lose by calling him and asking what’s up. Also, I don’t want to tether my wagon to a dead horse.

    Travis,

    I am leaving xyz and no longer in a position to implement this program. I recommend that you stay in touch with “ops manger” as my successor has not been determined. Until a successor is named Adrienne will have a voice at the Board meetings.

    Thank you,

    ceo”
