Product & Portfolio Strategy

Product Due Diligenc

CENTRAL EU Ambassador 

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

I quickly realised I'd better let others develop Software. My strengths were obviously on the customer and business side. Without planning it, I became a product manager (in digital health). A role and a place where I felt I can make the impact I always wanted - Identify what really matters - engage and motivate teams to create solutions that are truly meaningful and achieve something that nobody else has managed before - most importantly, if you want to keep creating you'd better understand the entire business, wing 2 wing, while you stay super close to your customer and teams.

Born in a startup, grown up in a scale up and strengthened by a global fortune 500 I have created digital health solutions and managed digital health portfolios - globally and quite successfully but not without mistakes (learnings I am happy to share)! I am evangelist for empowered product teams that constantly strive for the ultimate flow in creating value for their customers.

My passion for bringing digital solutions to life and leading companies to success was the trigger for founding Spark Digital Health.

 

Associate Partners
