Craig Wortmann Biography

Craig Wortmann is a Clinical Professor of Innovation & Entrepreneurship at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management and is the Founder & Academic Director of the Kellogg Sales Institute. In 2018, 2019 and again in 2020, Wortmann won the “Outstanding Professor” distinction awarded by Kellogg’s Executive MBA students. Launched in 2019, his Mastering Sales: A Toolkit for Success online course is the highest rated course on the Emeritus platform, and Craig was recently called “the gold standard in remote learning” by Executive MBA students at Kellogg.

From 2008 to 2016, Wortmann was Clinical Professor of Entrepreneurship at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business. He designed, developed and taught the award-winning Entrepreneurial Selling™ course, recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the “Top Ten” in the U.S. He also taught Building the New Venture and developed Chicago Booth's four-day in-depth senior executive leadership course called Building Leadership Capital. Wortmann was the recipient of the 2012 Faculty Excellence Award, given to the professor who has the greatest positive impact on the students.

Wortmann is the author of “What’s Your Story?,” a book that helps people tell the right story at the right time for the right reasons. Wortmann launched The Art of Sales: Mastering the Selling Process, a four-part Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) Specialization with Coursera that has helped tens of thousands of people worldwide acquire critical selling skills and disciplines.

From IBM Corporation as the #2 performer in his year-long Sales School class, to a Dean Witter company covering three-quarters of the country selling to large retailers, Wortmann is an expert in all things sales. After earning his MBA in marketing and finance from Kellogg in 1995, Craig joined the Forum Corporation and quickly became the firm’s new product launch and client recovery specialist. In 2000, Wortmann was recruited to join startup WisdomTools as its CEO, and he then sold it to a larger firm in 2008.

Wortmann is the Founder and CEO of Sales Engine, Inc., a tools and services firm based on the belief that a company should treat sales as the engine of their business. As a global speaker and virtual sales advisor, Wortmann helps companies develop the knowledge, skill and discipline necessary to build a successful sales engine. In 2009, the venture backers behind the interactive marketing and web strategy firm, ClearGauge, sought Wortmann to become CEO while running his Sales Engine firm. Wortmann executed a turnaround by building a sales engine and ClearGauge was then acquired by a larger agency.

Wortmann serves as Operating Partner for Pritzker Group Venture Capital and helps grow the sales engines of its portfolio companies.

An Evanston, Illinois resident for more than 21 years, in his free time Craig enjoys reading and running the Lake Michigan path, and wakeboarding and practicing photography in Wisconsin with his family.
