Elevate Sales

Our Heritage

Southwestern Consulting is a part of The Southwestern Family of Companies which is a collection over 30 different companies that span across many different industries all with two things in common: direct sales and building people.

Our oldest company and still flagship is Southwestern Advantage which was established in 1868 making it the oldest direct sales company in the US. To this day, Southwestern Advantage helps college students pay their way through school by teaching them to run their own businesses selling educational children’s reference materials door to door. Several of our consultants, coaches, and speakers at Southwestern Consulting got their start in sales by working in the program selling and recruiting students to sell door to door.

Our other companies in the corporate family include:

  • The #1 Raymond James office in the world, Southwestern Investments, who currently manages over $3.5 billion in assets.
  • The largest school fund-raising company in the world, Great American. We’ve raised over $5.5 billion for schools across America by offering premium residual fundraising products..
  • One of our affiliate partners is Tom James, the largest custom clothier company in the world. Many people know Tom James because they bring their suits directly to your home or office.

Our history and heritage is deeply entrenched in the profession of selling. We know selling, we do selling, we love selling! And at our very core, we are practitioners of what we preach.
