With over a decade of experience in enterprise software I speacialize in emerging International Markets for companies like Microsoft, RSinteract, ADP, Pentaho & Entando.
During my time at Microsoft I was working on the launch of Live Meeting & Performance Point Server in Europe. At RSInteract a UK software vendor I launched into the US & European Markets from The UK with a software tools within a start -up called ICS which was successfully exited through acquisition.
Most recently I worked as Director of Channel for EMEA & APAC at Pentaho, where I was awarded Top 100 most powerful women in the Channel by CRN magazine in 2011 for 286% growth in EMEA.
I am certified by The Data Warehousing Institute (TDWI) as a Business Intelligence Professional (CBIP), and I am Chartered Management Accountant certified by The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).
Most recently the Cambridge Institute inducted me as a Lifetime member in the Who's Who of Women in IT for my accomplishements within the software sector successfully emerging a variety of enterprise class software products into global markets.
I have successfully launched software both proprietary & open source into North America, Europe, the Middle east, Africa and Asia Pacific. I am a strong believer in a channel philosophy for software distribution especially in emerging markets.
I started my career launching web based payroll software for ADP and moved on to become a consultant teaching small businesses how to become more efficient with payroll software as well as other forms of automation both software & processes. I successfully exited my consultancy practice by being acquired by a larger consulting firm.
