Executive and Director level player, I've a background in building and scaling businesses to take advantage of convergence and the digital world in which we find ourselves. My background in analysis, processes, and luxury consumption means that I don't just look to grow stock-standard KPIs, but seek to find those hidden insights and metrics and scale them.
