My other experience includes over a decade in multi-industry consulting and IT sales across the software, food, hospitality, gaming/betting and radio industries. I thrive on building relationships with customers by listening to them and truly understanding their “pain points” before working with cross-functional teams to deliver solutions that customers really value to meet their needs.

  • Led the company’s team to develop group communications technology platform for sports clubs to have more efficient mobile communication between the club, its teams and team members in a dedicated, secure platform using agile methods to design, prototype and build the feature set based on actual user needs compared with email or other public messaging services.
  • Worked with commercial and technical stakeholders to convert opportunities into timely closed sales as a solutions-focused, data-driven problem solver.
  • Worked closely with cross-functional teams to leverage the tools of global technology companies in areas such as cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) for virtual server and database management, product and data analytics and customer relationship management (CRM).
  • Worked closely with internal and external marketing and creative teams to identify target users (persona development), create our brand identity and establish the brand roots, character and purpose based on key data-driven consumer insights and devising plans with agency partners.


Next move goal:

To be part of a team of driven, like-minded people with the entrepreneurial drive to scale and grow a company’s products and services to become a global success.
