On The Beat Industry News In Brief

Sales Diesel, a Carmel company that provided salespeople for technology companies, appears to be out of business.

The firm’s Web site was taken down last week and calls to its 11590 N. Meridian St. offices were not returned.

The company was founded by Brent, Brad and Angie Seaman in 2007. Last year, the principals said they’d provided salespeople to 140 software and technology companies too small or constrained to maintain their own sales forces. Sales Diesel projected sales could reach $12 million this year.

Earlier last year, the firm said it had 60 employees and planned to add 50 more.

Brent Seaman, CEO, had previously operated a real estate investment business, BA Seaman and Associates.

In 2001, he pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud and served a 17-month prison sentence. He was charged with using funds from mortgages obtained from Mortgage Company of America to buy homes at market value. Investigators said he obtained inflated appraisals of the properties and sold them to others at higher prices.

  1. So as I read this the one question that continues to come to me to ask is. Didn't Indiana only have a couple of exchanges for people to opt into which were very high because we really didn't want to expect the plan. So was this study done during that time and if so then I can understand these numbers. I also understand that we have now opened up for more options for hoosiers to choose from. Please correct if I'm wrong and if I'm not why was this not part of the story so that true overview could be taken away and not just parts of it to continue this negative tone against the ACA. I look forward to the clarity.

  2. It's really very simple. All forms of transportation are subsidized. All of them. Your tax money already goes toward every single form of transportation in the state. It is not a bad thing to put tax money toward mass transit. The state spends over 1,000,000,000 (yes billion) on roadway expansions and maintenance every single year. If you want to cry foul over anything cry foul over the overbuilding of highways which only serve people who can afford their own automobile.

  3. So instead of subsidizing a project with a market-driven scope, you suggest we subsidize a project that is way out of line with anything that can be economically sustainable just so we can have a better-looking skyline?

  4. Downtowner, if Cummins isn't getting expedited permitting and tax breaks to "do what they do", then I'd be happy with letting the market decide. But that isn't the case, is it?

  5. Patty, this commuter line provides a way for workers (willing to work lower wages) to get from Marion county to Hamilton county. These people are running your restaurants, hotels, hospitals, and retail stores. I don't see a lot of residents of Carmel working these jobs.
