I’ve been lucky to have led a very international career, having headed sales projects in countries all over the world, such as:
Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Netherlands, Singapore/Malaysia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, UK and USA
Being a native English speaker has helped a lot, not only because of my language skills but also because of my insights into the British culture and the differences between the cultures of the countries where I’ve worked, particularly Germany, where I live.
My professional experience over the last 20-odd years shows a clear progression from being a “techy” to being more “salesy” and customer-oriented.
The roles I’ve filled are shown below in reverse chronological order:
- Senior Sourcing Advisor (current)
- Outsourcing Business Development Director
- Head of International Engagement Management
- Senior Engagement Manager
- Data centre Manager
- Head of Systems Programming
- Systems Programmer
