Ashley Mayer launched her career as a Vendor Manager with ZeroChaos, a workforce management company in Orlando, FL. Transitioning to sales, she led the sales and marketing department at the University of Central Florida Regional Extension Center, aiming to help physicians and hospitals adopt updated information technology. Today, she is the Regional Vice President-Healthcare at Gartner, a leading global information technology research and advisory firm.
“During my time at Gartner, I have had the opportunity to experience five different roles, all of which have pushed and challenged me to reach new heights. The great thing about this organization is the opportunity for continuous growth and to be continually pushed outside of your comfort zone to develop as a professional.”
As Vice President, Ashley leads a team of five Healthcare Sales Managers and 40 Account Executives with a focus on coaching, inspiring, motivating, and developing her people to achieve their personal and professional goals. She also strives to maintain strategic relationships with her clients. “My greatest accomplishment to date was finishing as the #1 region in our sales channel and getting my entire management team across the line to Gartner's Winners Circle in 2019.”
Ashley graduated from the University of Central Florida (UCF) where she double majored in Public Administration and Medical Management. She also received a Master’s in Healthcare Informatics from UCF.
In advice to current ProSales students, Ashley recommends putting yourself out there. “Don’t be afraid of failure or stepping outside of your comfort zone. Fail, fail fast, learn from it and move on! We don’t grow when things are easy, we grow when we face challenges.”
