What’s your title/role at BrightInsight?

As Solution Consulting Director, I partner with our Sales teams along the sales cycle to identify, conceptualize and demonstrate value-creating opportunities with our digital solutions that meet the specific business and IT needs of our prospects and customers. Solution Consultants (Sales Engineers) work in alignment with product and go-to-market teams, and build the technical bridge between sales and customers, providing product/technical expertise and funneling valuable insights and product needs from the field back to internal teams.

Can you share a bit of background on yourself?

I grew up in Germany, near Frankfurt, with my identical twin sister and my older brother. My studies in International Management and Digital Innovation in Information Systems across Europe (DE, FR, IRE) made me decide for a career in Digital Technology. First, with a short entrepreneurial experience in Germany, later, with my work as Solution Engineer at Salesforce in France. At Salesforce, I have been given the opportunity to advise customers varying in size and industry on a wide range of Salesforce solutions, before eventually focusing on our strategic customers and the Health Life Science industry.

What is your favorite part about working at BrightInsight?

I am happy to contribute to driving this industry forward.

What are your hobbies outside of work?

In my free time, I am often on the tennis court and balance that out with some Yoga, I enjoy surfing or hiking holidays and keeping my body in movement whenever I can. Besides sports, I like getting creative and hands-on: I do music, I paint and sketch, I enjoy do-it-yourself and manual projects. Currently, I am enrolled in a course to learn the fabrication of jewelry.
