I have started a company with two partners, one of which is a salesman who drives all of our revenue. Myself and the other partner handle all of the deals after the sale is made. Our original agreement was to split the profits equally, with some sort of short term compensation for the contacts the salesman brought with him to the company producing quick revenue. We are now having some consternation on how to give him some added compensation for his "in place" relationships without setting a long term expectation of unequal profit splits. Does anyone have any advice on a good short term solution to pay him some amount for his "in place " relationships while keeping him motivated as a salesman after this introductory period is over? Thank you for your advice.
