I’m a technologist with a strong sales gene with around 17 Years of experience in the IT space. I bring a lot of expertise into the game which I’ve developed through many many projects with customers in multiple verticals and customer sizes.

An early adopter of new technologies with get things done mentality

What are the areas of technical expertise?

I work since many years in the areas of virtualization, Digital / Modern Workplace, Architecture and Infrastructure. Said that, I’ve a lot of expertise with regards to implementation, troubleshooting and optimization of those (VMware vExpert 2x, Award winner for creativity and at it best). 

In addition to that, I’ve couple of years of experience with Microsoft technologies, Identity and Access Management but with Storage, databases and Backup and Recovery as well.

It is always important to have a great and from the customer needed business outcome. Therefore for me it is important to consult my customers overall with regards to the best solution for their needs. With that kind of approach I will make sure the customer get the best out of the engagement and the experience showd me that this is the correct way because at the end, the solution provided have to solve the business needs.

What are the soft-skills and areas of expertise?

In my career I’ve done a lot of workshops technically, sales and strategy but also mentoring and teaching people. I have a lot of experience as presenter and speaker on stage, in workshops with customers, Webcast, Webinars and at events. 

Create great solutions and get the best out of it. Nothing is impossible.

Simply me 😉
