I am Head of Regional Marketing Communications and Operations in the Indirect, Middle East and Africa Region.
I am driving the digital transformation of the marketing function in this region. Among my favourite types of challenges are the ones that involve bringing people together to deliver a project, and I like the challenge of delivering “wow”. I have a passion for the new digital world, and I am often caught immersed in this when I should, in fact, be walking my dogs.
