Tell us a little bit about your career journey before joining RGP.
I spent the majority of my career at Pitney Bowes Inc., starting in sales then progressing to various executive roles in Sales, Marketing, Operations and General Management. I took on two international assignments living in the UK. The first was as VP of Sales and Marketing for the UK/ROI, and the second was as MD of the UK and VP of Sales for Europe. In 2017, I joined a smaller software company, Qognify Ltd., where I led the EMEA team in providing security solutions that mitigate risks, streamline operations and optimize physical operations. I’ve been fortunate to gain experience and understanding of working with businesses of all sizes throughout the US, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
What inspires you?

What is a goal you have your eyes set on?
To accelerate our growth throughout Europe and to enable my team to achieve personal success.
What does success in your role look like?
For RGP to become the market leader throughout Europe where companies of all sizes think of us first to help solve their strategic challenges.
What was your best day at work at RGP?
Each day becomes better than the last. Meeting with the teams throughout Europe to learn how we can help solve client issues and make them more successful will always be my best days.
At RGP we bring a human-first approach. What does that mean to you?
The people in our business define who we are and how successful we can be. To me, a human-first approach means that we respect each other, appreciate our differences and focus collaboratively on achieving our personal goals, our company goals and the goals of our clients.
How do the RGP values (Loyalty, Integrity, Focus, Enthusiasm, Accountability and Talent) shape how you approach your role?
These values provide a framework for everything I do – both personally and professionally. I strive to act with integrity and authenticity. I work hard to remain focused and to provide a clear vision of our mission. I come to work every day with passion and energy to enable our teams to be successful and I hold myself ultimately accountable for our results.
