  • Empathy in Customer Success: “Empathy is the compass that guides the customer success strategic advisor. As we delve into the intricacies of an organization, it’s the understanding and shared feeling that allows us to align with the customer’s vision truly. Empathy is what turns a mere consultation into a deep, trusted partnership.”
  • Interpersonal Skills – Beyond the Classroom: “Interpersonal skills are not mere qualifications on paper; they are the lifelines of effective communication in business. A strategic advisor thrives not just on market knowledge but on their agility to communicate, their prowess to solve problems, and their acumen to build diverse relationships. It’s the bridge between internal goals and external realities.”
  • The Art of Relationship Management: “In the SaaS and Customer Success world, relationship management is the difference between transactional interactions and building lasting legacies. It’s about nurturing an ‘ongoing’ bond with customers, ensuring trust and loyalty. Beyond just serving, it’s about becoming an indispensable part of a customer’s journey and fostering a culture of collaboration internally. It’s not just about holding onto clients; it’s about holding onto trust.”

As a result, I have achieved high NPS scores and YoY growth and onboarding rates for my portfolio of accounts.


My previous roles as a Director of Solutions Architects and a Director of Systems Engineering have equipped me with the skills and experience to communicate effectively with C-level executives, design and execute projects, negotiate and close deals, and innovate and adapt to changing market needs. I have a proven track record of building and leading high-performance teams, creating and implementing value-selling strategies, and expanding platforms to SaaS and cloud offerings. I have also received multiple awards and recognition for my sales achievements and technical leadership.


I am looking for a new challenge that will allow me to leverage my unique abilities as a manager, solutions architect, and customer success engineer, and to contribute to the overall technology strategy and innovation of a forward-thinking company.
