Successful and highly motivated UK and International Senior Sales Professional, I have sold at all levels and have also developed and managed teams of sales people to do the same. With a range of experience rarely matched in terms of technology and spread of client base, I have specialised in opening new markets or introducing new products. Development of channels to suit the product and market as well as the delivery of a successful sales strategy has been an essential element.
