About RepHunter

How can manufacturers, small business owners, distributors or sales agencies quickly and confidently find qualified sales reps? Conversely, how can manufacturers’ reps and independent sales reps find new product or service lines to offer their customer base? It can be like searching for the needle in the haystack.

As experienced sales professionals, we created RepHunter due to our frustrated attempts to search for new sales rep opportunities. So we built a haystack full of needles so to speak—one website where companies and reps create their profiles, search, find and contact each other.

RepHunter’s profiling system for manufacturers, service providers and sales representatives captures only the necessary information. RepHunter leverages an online active databases of companies’ and sales reps’ profiles that allows manufacturers, service providers and qualified sales representatives to quickly target a match for their sales representation needs.

RepHunter profiles give you intelligence so you can make decisions, not just information so you can make gambles.

Our clients confirm the quality of our referrals and tell us that the candidates that we place are more productive and able to hit the ground running faster precisely because of their established customer base.

RepHunter is the most cost-effective and time-efficient way to find sales reps in your industry.

"Thank you, Jeff: you are one of the very few website developers who actually listen to feedback from their customers, and implement changes that help. As a newcomer to using reps, I have done an in-depth study of rep websites and what each one has to offer, and RepHunter is, by far and away, the easiest to use, the most cost-effective, and it has allowed me to be in control of who I want to contact every step of the way. I have already hired 10 reps, and it's not easy to do when you can't interview them face to face. Keep up the good work." -
