Sales rep earning a commission through referring a customer to another company

Q: I work at a sales position in a company. Is it halal for me to pass on a lead I got from a connection, to some other supplier which I cannot fulfil from my company and receive commission from that supplier when the deal is done.

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
