about me

I bring to the table over twenty years experience in international marketing communications, bringing new technologies to market, a strong data analytics background and an ability to collaborate across the organization. I’ve worked in both private and public companies at the senior management level. I also co-founded the Ice Awards for creative in advertising for Atlantic Canada now in it’s 17th year.

I have the ability to distill complex issues and challenges into an easy to understand strategy for execution. I’m very forward looking and with extensive experience in leveraging current and emerging technologies to help companies reduce costs, improve profitability and leverage new opportunities. Yet at the same time I have a pragmatic approach to trends and technology with an ability to mitigate risks. I believe in collaboration and coaching whenever possible to help build capacity with teams. I have extensive experience in building distribution and reseller networks in foreign markets (EU, Latin America, Middle East and Asia) and negotiating complex international sales agreements.

 

Perfect match

I’m a senior marketing communications and business development executive looking to work with companies that want to grow their business internationally. My global experience and deep knowledge of technology would be ideal for a technology company looking to truly expand.
