As a proven leader with the ability to build and grow dynamic cross-functional teams that get results, I have a passion for helping talented people achieve and grow. With a customer-first focus, my teams have always strived to over-deliver on client expectations and exceed revenue and growth goals.

Throughout my career, I've focused on Advertising & Online Marketing, leveraging experience in event marketing, radio, digital media and e-commerce.

Leading teams across multiple functions, my remit was to drive revenue growth and profitability across Sales, Ad Operations, Product Development and Marketing. At Rakuten, I led the Enterprise Sales Team that was responsible for selling the integrated marketing solutions across Affiliate, Display, Attribution, Social and Search.

At Smaato, I lead the team focused on helping agencies, DSPs and brands maximize their access, strategy and reach across our 90,000+ publishers. Our global team acts as an extension of our clients, to help them navigate the complex mobile advertising ecosystem in a brand-safe and fraud-free manner.
