Senior Digital Leader
I am a digital strategy leader with a proven ability to get things done and the long-term vision to inspire and grow productive teams. Builder of bridges, agile communicator, passionate technophile and aspiring marketing & technology thought leader, I span the gap between technology and marketing – a place where so many organizations struggle to realize success. I personally thrive on challenges that focus on areas of digital product design, technology and customer experience architecture.
In me, you’ll find a unique mix of technical skill and business background, coming from diverse leadership roles spanning information technology, customer experience and marketing. I “speak” developer, but I also understand the environments and circumstances in which c-level executives operate. If you’re looking for a leader to bridge the gap between the customer, IT and the business, then let’s chat!
