Paul Joseph Burnham is the newest addition to the Credentrust Software family. He comes to Credentrust Software from California First Leasing Corporation, a subsidiary of California First National Bancorp. He left California First to become Credentrust’s newest Senior Business Development Manager.
“I came to Credentrust Software because I think iBank.com is a fantastic product,” said Burnham. “Instead of banging my head against the wall trying to find and keep leads, at iBank.com the leads literally come pouring into the website. I wanted to work here because I met Tom Markel, CEO and Chairman of Credentrust Software, at a community event and I trusted him from the beginning, which is a difficult task in a competitive marketplace.”
Burnham graduated from California State University, Los Angeles with a BS in Business Administration. After college he went to work for Dun and Bradstreet Information Services in Los Angeles, California from 1989-1992. There he was the Senior Customer Sales Representative, when in a short four year period he was one of only two people promoted to senior status in the Los Angeles District office. He then went to work for CDB Infotek, a ChoicePoint company in Santa Ana, California as their Headquarters Region Sales Manager from 1992-1997. At CDB Infotek he implemented contact management/sales automation software throughout the company. From 1998-2002 he worked at Donald Sturm’s Firstworld and Qwest both located in Irvine, California. He landed at California First Leasing Corporation in 2002 as an Account Executive until 2006 when he became their District Manager. Burnham built a $70,000,000.00 prospect pipeline within a 90 day period. Burnham joins Credentrust Software to increase the company’s share of the market using his own contacts and driving more businesses to the website, ibank.com.
“We are thrilled to have Paul join the family,” said Markel. “He comes to us with years of sales management experience and will help us reach our goals of increased web exposure to small business owners. Credentrust Software is lucky to have such a dedicated and professional Senior Business Development Manager, such as Paul. We look forward to years of continuity and friendship.”
