Sydney based business development leader. I am deeply passionate about the tech industry having spent 8 years working for Facebook and Instagram after a career in brand marketing and market research in Melbourne. Joining FB Inc in the then-emerging market of EMEA, returning to Australia to assist in setting up new territories in Melbourne before relocating to Sydney in 2013.
For the last 2 years I have been leading the business development efforts for Instagram’s positioning within Australia and New Zealand, both as a monetized business supporting key brand partnerships and agencies, in addition to increasing user growth and engagement within the Insta community.
In addition to Instagram, over the last 5 months I have been working on new business go-to-market strategy for the Facebook Messenger product working closely with Head office in California and early APAC partners in Australia, Thailand and Indonesia.
I am looking for a new challenge that plays to my strengths in branding based strategy for a mission-lead company and a product I truly believe in and can passionately share with others. I am an obsessive Uber user and would welcome the chance to apply my skill set to your unique products in market working alongside a first class team.
