Who is Mary Grothe?

Mary Grothe is the Chief Revenue Officer at PNI•HCM (Payroll Network, Inc.) and founder and former CEO of House of Revenue®. She is an openly-faith-based leader, entrepreneur, global keynote speaker, and the host of the podcast Destination; Remarkable.

Mary began her sales career at a Fortune 1000 company, where she quickly advanced from an admin role to being the number one sales representative. By following her natural instincts always to put the customers first and listen to their needs, she was able to drive success for her clients and herself and brought in millions of dollars in revenue.

Driven to help others succeed, Mary founded her first company at the age of 28 and became a startup business strategist. Over a three-year period, she was instrumental in helping 36 startups reach profitability. Her passion for scaling companies grew, and she founded Sales BQ® to expand her reach from startups to companies with $1 million to $3 million in annual recurring revenue.

Mary recognized that focusing on the sales process alone was no longer enough to successfully scale a company, so she evolved Sales BQ to House of Revenue® and developed a holistic revenue strategy that integrates sales, marketing, branding, customer success, and revenue operations.

House of Revenue focuses on all aspects of the Revenue Engine, with a Fractional Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) and Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) team service. Mary and her team helped multiple second-stage growth companies, between $2M and $20M in annual recurring revenue.

On January 30, 2023, Mary stepped down from the CEO role at House of Revenue and began her new role as the CRO at Payroll Network, Inc. (PNI·HCM). She then successfully sold House of Revenue in June, 2023.

As a faith-based leader, Mary inspires and empowers others to commit themselves to “Do Remarkable Work,” to structure their lives so that they can truly honor their values, and to ask the question,

“What is most important in my life? Do I want to be successful, or do I want to be significant?"

She is a global keynote speaker on entrepreneurship and faith-based leadership and is working on two upcoming books to be published under Forbes | Books.
