I started my career with BT 4 years ago in The Netherlands. During my first two years in the company I took on 4 different roles that gave me a breadth of understanding about the business and a sense of direction about where I want to go. After the successful completion of the Leadership development graduate scheme, I knew I wanted to work in a dynamic, growing and very relevant part of the business.

And so I moved to BT's Cyber Security practice in London. At the time we were just setting the team up and establishing our name as a leader in this space. My initial role and contribution was to build and manage our global pipeline. I established consultative relationships between customers and solution teams, and qualified and developed complex managed cyber security business solutions.

With the growth of the pipeline as well as the maturity of our portfolio grew, I took on a new challenge as the Commercial & Product lead for our flagship cyber security product. In that role I drove the further commercial and product development of BT’s Cyber Security solution.

The role I most recently took up is as the Strategy lead for our Cyber Security portfolio. I set BT’s Cyber Security portfolio commercial strategy and make sure it is executed accurately on a global level.
