Summary

I am a driven Sales Director and Project Director with over 6 years experience in the Digital Marketing industry. Proven track record of success, including managing one of the top performing markets (UK market) for one of the world’s largest Lead Generation companies called adSalsa Publicidad in Spain. 

I was hired to build and develop my current project www.testaproduct.eu from the ground up for a company who had the intention of selling the project on after 12 months. This project was a great success as Testaproduct has now got close to 500k users and generating 40k registrations monthly, which has lead to it recently being sold to a competitor looking to expand their portfolio. 

I am now available and currently looking for the right opportunity to bring my expertise to a well-established company in an upper management permanent position.

Work History

Sep 2015Present

Online Sales Director and Project Manager

Verso Group (UK) Ltd

For this position, I utilised all the knowledge acquired in the last 5 years at adSalsa Publicidad and designed a business plan, put projections in place, set expectations and put the project in to motion. I developed Verso Group's Online business from the ground up to become one of the UK's fastest growing Affiliate and Lead Generation businesses. Within 1 year the team has grown from 1 to 4 employees, each specialising in key areas for the continued growth of the project. I provided full sales training and helped new employees understand the culture of the project. We work hard and consistently meet goals and objectives.

In the years of experience in the industry, this position has been most challenging in terms of level of difficulty and level of responsibility, from which I have learnt a wide variety of new skills. 

Constantly meeting with the board of directors I discuss new opportunities, budgets and review the project's profit and loss.

My division focuses on all Online Marketing channels concentrating most (if not all) of its energy on the recurring business for companies such as Media Houses, Affiliate Agencies, large Corporations, to medium and small size businesses. Verso's online business caters for anyone with an idea, who needs the resources and knowledge of the online environment for it to become a reality.
