Founder / Co-founder and Managing Director at GoToMarket Group and Partners (GTM GmbH)
Startupbootcamp FinTech & CyberSecurity Amsterdam || Smart City & IoT Amsterdam Mentor
My professional background is in telecommunications and in data analysis interfaces for the electric utility industry. CIM systems integration with IBM and pre-sales project management skills allowed me to join Cisco Systems in 1998. Here I launched seven international technical sales operations in fourteen years. I eventually moved on from Cisco after about a decade in years experience in director level consultancy with sales teams in EMEA, Russia-CIS and LatAm. I gave birth to the idea to and co-founded GoToMarket Group and Partners in 2012. I do what I love most: Build next-Gen operations and work with people for people.
My mentoring skills were trained and developed naturally working with high-pace, bleeding-edge technology teams. My passion is sales talent development with teams in the Internet Generation and their challenging alignment with Boomers. The-sky’s-the-limit, Let’s-try-that and Think-outside-the-box are my preferred thinking styles and I love to discover new ways to better things and smarter processes.
