20+ years Executive Leadership in the IT Software and Services sectors; having held a broad range of senior management positions in the UK, USA, Germany and Netherlands. As a Managing Director in Cisco UK and Ireland, I lead the Architecture Sales Specialist Teams of Enterprise Networks, Datacenter, Security and Collaboration. I have overall responsibility for the development and execution of our Architectural strategy and go-to-market objectives. I am passionate about attracting, retaining and developing world class talent and building winning teams. As a member of the Cisco UKI Leadership team, I work closely with a diverse range of Partners and Customers, and have a leading role in several of Cisco’s broader initiatives encouraging innovation and mentoring startups across Britain. Before joining Cisco, I spent 7 years at Siemens Enterprise Communications where I held various international leadership roles, including heading up global Unified Communications business management and Alliance Development.
