Meet the Owner
JIM HINSHAW | President & Founder of SIP Inc.
Upon graduating from the University of Missouri at Rolla, Jim started his career with the Trane Co. After several sales positions, he moved to Phoenix, where as manager of Trane’s residential division, he enjoyed a 50% market penetration. Jim’s background includes positions as President of one of the oldest and largest air conditioning companies in Arizona, residential start-up specialist for a major manufacturer, and an officer in a Carrier owned service agency.
For nine years Jim served as Vice President of a 23 year old residential and light commercial service and replacement company, running their sales and installation division. During his time there, his division grew 300%, replacement sales topped $3,000,000 per year, and company closure rate exceeded 60%. So how good is Jim? Even though Jim’s price was always 10% to 50% higher than his competition, his closing ratio on replacement systems averaged a phenomenal 80%! He enjoys training sales, technical, and management team members with companies that want to increase profits and grow to the next level.
Jim has provided high-results training for clients from Calgary, Canada to Adelaide, Australia. Jim retired from the contracting business in 1999 when he formed his own training company, Sales Improvement Professionals, dedicated to bringing his real-world experience to help enhance your sales and marketing efforts.

We use many instructors in our program. Some deliver our materials, others deliver material they have developed. We consider Jim to be an asset to our program because he has a common background with many of our customers who sense that the material he delivers was developed by one who has "been there, and done that." We receive consistent great comments about our decision to include Jim in our training program and the messages from a customer that confirms you've made a wise decision are invaluable. Thanks Jim!
