Global Executive bridging the gap of elusive technologies to daily businesses
Being extremely driven to bring new (ICT) technologies to the daily business of customers, partners and within alliances, I am blessed with the ability to have these technologies explained by using laymen metaphors. Becoming the authority at (initial) customer meetings, events, media, governmental-bodies and within analyst communities.
I have proven capabilities in rapidly shifting between (technical-) languages and cultures, this in relation with fast scale-up of business-structures and processes. With this talent, I am able to connect people within and outside the organization.
At the first half of my career, I laid a strong foundation of knowledge by fulfilling a broad spectrum of activities. These are outside-facing roles such as, business development, sales (direct, indirect & OEM), consultancy & marketing (PR & product marketing) and internal-oriented roles such as product management, production and logistics. The past 15 years at executive level with the related team- and profit/loss responsibilities.
My organizational background is a healthy mixture of large (public-listed) corporates, midsized companies and start-ups. These have been technology vendors with global operations and their roots are either in the States or in Germany.
As executive, I add value to the board of global technology driven organizations, willing to bring their technology capabilities to the next growth level.
