Benjamin's CV

Nationality: British

Profile

I’m a determined, methodical and outgoing individual with the diligence and acumen to solve business issues with SaaS solutions. Having the ability to influence and develop relationships has allowed me to win net new commercial and enterprise business with multi-national organisations. With a degree in mechanical engineering, project management experience, significant cyber security knowledge and AWS qualifications, I bring both an analytical approach along with an energetic presence. Having a background in sales and engineering has allowed me to see projects from both perspectives and interact with different personalities. This has led me to excel as an individual, as well as a team player, whilst also having a natural “hunter” and entrepreneurial spirit. Being involved in international business has led me to work in Dubai, Malta, and London.
