I am an international marketing leader developing and executing strategies for profitable growth. Supporting large public and small private as well as Private Equity portfolio companies, I am known for market focus and strong work ethic - the customer always comes first. I have a Kellogg MBA, and am a certified Global Business Leader.

With a track record in B2B marketing and sales, P/L management, business strategy and business development, I have worked in interesting industries - manufacturing, equipment rental, construction equipment, pumps, supply chain and consulting.

I have been around the block once or twice. Situation-based leadership and focus on execution comes from years of experience. I deal with complexity, ambiguity and lack of information every day, and work well in matrix organizations. With broad intercultural experience, I am always diplomatic and humble, never driven by ego. A former Arctic Infantry officer, I greatly care for my employees, and have a bias for action!
