I am an International sales and marketing executive with extensive experience in terrestrial and satellite data communications and IP networking. During this time I have worked with nearly every communications technology and protocol for both local and wide area networks. I have marketed and sold both hardware solutions and managed services in both the SME and enterprise markets. I have strong channel management skills and understand the role and value that a channel partner can have before, during and after a successful sale. As an individual contributor I have the capability to develop, implement and achieve sales plans for individual accounts; as a manager I can take an existing team and increase their productivity and effectiveness.
My commercial skills and experience are complimented by a strong technical background which gives me a unique perspective on technology, the ability to cut through the hype and most importantly, to understand how it can meet a customer’s needs.
