Shell Black started consulting on Salesforce in 2005 and instantly fell in love with how the platform, when used well, enabled businesses to “box above their weight” and compete with much larger companies. What started as a passion to solve problems in the cloud, soon became a business. ShellBlack was founded in 2010 with a simple mission —– to help companies maximize their CRM investment by providing elegant Salesforce solutions that facilitate how they market, sell, and provide support to their customers.
As an active member of the Salesforce community, Shell was inducted as a Salesforce MVP in 2012 and is now a member of the Salesforce MVP Hall of Fame. He has spoken at Dreamforce multiple times, contributed to the official Salesforce company blog, and has earned the following certifications: Administrator, Developer, Platform App Builder, and Sales Cloud Consultant.
Shell Black holds a Bachelor of Arts from Hendrix College, and spent a year abroad at Oxford University.
