So – Is His Name Really Winton Churchill?
Yes, that is his real name….and yes he is related.
He has a common ancestor with Winston Churchill, but he is from the branch of the family that moved to America.
He is a “Junior” and when his father was born Winston was not yet famous…a public official…but not well known in America.
The “Winton” is the name of the first car that crossed the United States in 1903. At that time it was generally believed that cars would never be able to travel long distances on unimproved roads.
In fact, at the time, one venture capitalist remarked that the big drawback to the automobile was you’d have to pave the entire network of dirt and gravel roads that crisscrossed the country.
Winton’s grandfather was a “car nut” and named his son in honor of that vehicle. The Winton Motor Car Company of Cleveland, OH was sold to a company that would become a division of General Motors and remnants of the original company exist today as one of GM’s specialized engine divisions.
High Praise For Winton Churchill And His New Book: Email Marketing For Complex Sales Cycles
“Winton Churchill is the Maestro when it comes to powerful lead generation. He is expert at coaching hard to attract B2B prospects in to the light…now he shares his proven system with you.”
Tony Alesandra, PhD, CSP, CPAE
For over a decade, Winton and I have worked with many of the same clients and I can testify to the fact that the Churchill Method has consistently produced a reliable and steady flow of leads for B2B sales teams.
He closes the gap that almost always exists between sales and marketing. He overcomes the marketing tendency to fail in tangible results by delivering actionable leads for complex sales. His system also helps correct for the sales team’s tendency to work with 90-day goggles, casting aside anything not ready to close now.

Since the dawn of marketing and sales departments in modern organizations, there has always been a conflict among marketing and sales about just what is a “qualified lead”. Sales wants to know why marketing can’t provide “qualified leads” and marketing wants to know why sales can’t close “qualified leads”. The Churchill Method provides a proven methodology and all the steps needed to remove the “qualified lead” mystique and facilitates the two organizations
working together to accomplish their common goal – closed sales for almost any company.
