A seasoned business development professional, with a proven track record of success, and the ability to build meaningful, strategic relationships across multiple business segments, cultures, and geographies.
Beginning my career in America the late 1980s as a Network Engineer, disrupting the established marketplace by designing and delivering solutions partnering with "upstart" companies like Cisco, Nortel, and Microsoft, my skill set evolved to gain an understanding of how businesses consume services and products, which transformed my role from being solely technical, in to a Pre-Sales Specialist with a solid understanding of the matrices that underpin successful solutions delivery.
From this position, I took on the dual challenges of emigrating to Taiwan to build and managing sales, engineering and operations teams delivering a variety of solutions throughout the country, and Asia more broadly.
I then emigrated to Australia, and have enjoyed an exhilarating career in technical business development, that has won business in Australia, APAC, and around the globe.
Hi everyone, I work in IT business development, which evolved from my core training as a credentialed Network Engineer (Cisco, Microsoft, and Nortel for those old enough to recall that last name). I spend a lot of time still working close to the front lines, engaging with senior executives and technical stakeholders, to design, deploy and support the right solutions which power the business outcomes these companies require. I particularly enjoy working with the Sydney based Meraki team, and relish the chance to broaden my technical and sales knowledge.
