An International Software Sales leader with a proven track record of nearly 20 years of exceeding targets. I have worked for companies based in Germany, Finland, Sweden, the UK and the USA and have successfully done business in over 50 different countries. My skills include marketing, channel and product development expertise, so that I’m now a strategic go-to-market leader with a deep understanding of the overall commercial picture. The key to my sales success, has been a consultative approach using the Challenger Sale concept to unearth want the customer really needs, even if they don't always know it themselves. I am 100% focused on closing deals and have always ensure that I and my team deliver on my numbers.
