Bob Hamer is a great mentor of mine and someone I hold in the highest regard. An expert in Ticket Sales, Bob has a strong work ethic for driving revenue while helping grow the careers of those around him. Bob’s management experience includes overseeing group, season ticket, and premium sales teams that exceeded sales goals regardless of team performance. His passion for growing careers coupled with his overall professionalism and vast network throughout the sports industry make him stand out amongst his peers. I was fortunate enough to work for Bob for two years with the Phoenix Suns and am privileged to call him a close friend.

I had an amazing experience working with Jason and SBS! They are very personable, knowledgeable, and provided great insight throughout my interview process. Would definitely recommend their guidance from training to interview prep.

I appreciated Josh and SBS coming out and spending time with us. I love the think-tank atmosphere the SBS team brings with them for training. There is nothing better than engaging in conversation about real situations and ideas as a team and then having people like Josh and Bob there to help guide the conversation. We look forward to seeing Josh and the SBS team again for another training session.
We’ve had the opportunity to work with SBS multiple times with focuses on different areas of our business, and all of their training sessions have been very well received by our staff. They have a unique way of bringing creative and practical sales approaches to our team, which makes it easy to implement following the session. We look forward to working with them again in the future.
Vice President Ticket Sales & Service
I’ve known Bob Hamer since we entered the sports industry together with the Phoenix Suns over a decade ago. From those early days as reps “smiling and dialing” to today, Bob has always had a genuine desire to help people. Whether it was assisting his clients or coworkers back then or helping aspiring professionals or teams in achieving their goals today, Bob’s dedication to others and commitment to excellence have been exemplary.
We partnered with Bob to do some sales training earlier this year, and our staff really enjoyed his down-to-earth approach in presenting the skills and techniques necessary to thrive in sales. They also appreciated the real-life examples and practical solutions he used to illustrate what was being taught.
If you have any training, consulting or recruiting needs, I highly recommend Bob and his SBS team.
