I have a hands-on approach to marketing with a broad background of more than 25 years working with regional, national and global brands for a mix of retail, manufacturing and services companies, both B2C and B2B, and across such diverse categories as healthcare, entertainment, finance, IT and mobility. This has made me very adaptable to new industries and companies, getting to understand the customers and market quickly to deliver great campaigns and effective results.
