I'm a design executive with over 20 years experience in product strategy, proposition development, design, engineering, and brand experience. A big believer in the collaboration of product leadership, design, and engineering informing business decisions together I always put an emphasis on delivering often, learning fast, grounding every innovation in line with business goals and responding to customer needs. During my career, I've been responsible for delivering across diverse platforms in a multitude of industries including; financial services, software development, communication services, music & entertainment, education, and health. It's been a privilege to have had the opportunity to build studios and led multidisciplinary teams internationally in London, Düsseldorf, San Francisco and New York.

In Salesforce professional services: Leading a group of mavericks and innovators helping our most strategic customers lead through change, where values underpin success and building alignment and perspective are as critical as the sharpest of tech. In Salesforce Product organization: Led the amazing teams that design the Salesforce Customer 360 Platform for our customers and users to ensure it's scalable, loveable, and accessible to all.
