Nick Smith

President, CEO & Founder

Nick Smith is the President, CEO, and Founder of Sailes – the company that created the first AI software to automate all prospecting. Nick founded Sailes in 2018 after an extensive career in sales leadership at CBS Corporation, iHeart Radio, and other enterprise sales organizations. Recognizing the power of AI to multiply human potential, and with the knowledge that most sales teams were taking a proportional, “sales enablement” approach to prospecting, Nick invented the Sailebot® to prospect on behalf of Sales Executives while accounting for their unique personalities.

Nick’s accolades include an Eagle Scout award, a two-time CBS New York “One to Watch” award, and being named “40 Future Leaders of New York Politics” by City and State Magazine. Prior to founding Sailes, he co-hosted “Common Ground,” an audio program on WOR New York and iHeart Radio, dedicated to building bridges between business and labor organizations.

Sailes, a venture-backed “Startup to Watch”, currently serves Fortune 1000 to 50 enterprises and is based in New York, NY and Kansas City, MO.
