I'm one of four partners in a litigation technology startup. We're a great mix of skills, everyone brings their own strengths to the table.
One of our partners is our head of sales because he has all the c-suite level sales experience and contacts. None of the other partners will be as strong in sales. He's asked for a sales commission or a "vig" on all new logos that he brings in.
Should a founding partner who's main role is sales receive a sales vig or commission in addition to his or her equity stake in the company? Is this fair to the other partners who will run operations but not receive a similar reward for doing so?
