I inspire groups of people to work together, to define and solve problems and build great businesses. At Seek, I led Product Development, Engineering, UX, Analytics, SEO and Data Science in ten countries, with teams in South America, Asia and Australia.
Before joining seek I built and launched Envato Studio, a freelance marketplace where customers can hire a designer or developer from anywhere in the world. My role included the building of the team, developing the business model, scaling strategy, business development, product, user experience, engineering, customer services & marketing.
At Nielsen, I developed a centralised engineering team to support the roll-out of products and designed and delivered to 8 EMEA regions.
I am an entrepreneurial leader who enjoys building happy and high performing teams. My passion lays in creating new businesses from the ground up and providing a new perspective and creative thinking to business. I’m currently studying a new type of Executive MBA with the Smartly Institute.
