I have 20+ years of experience leading change in businesses in sectors being disrupted by technology from the service to industrial sectors. My passion is using change as an opportunity to reinvent new ways of working that deliver greater value to customers. Having led businesses as a general manager, I have a first-hand appreciation for what it takes to mobilize teams and organizations behind a bold vision while taking the practical steps necessary to turn that vision into sustainable commercial value. I enjoy working collaboratively in international settings that take advantage of my diverse, cross-cultural experience.
