Executive Coach - UK
I have extensive international leadership experience having led commercial businesses in Europe, South America and Australia. This enables me to offer an understanding of diverse international cultures along with insights into leadership development in multinational corporations.
I worked for 25 years at Novartis, the Swiss pharmaceutical corporation, starting my career there as a Marketing Manager before progressing through country CEO positions to Regional CEO for EMEA. In my last role I led the European business to be the top-performing region for two successive years in terms of revenue growth and profitability.
During my corporate career it was the mentoring and coaching of young, ambitious, high-potential talents that gave me the greatest satisfaction and pride. I saw coaching as a way of focussing my energies on supporting the development of leaders challenged with leading, and aligning with, organisational and personal growth and change.
