I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with all of our prospects and customers to help them leverage the right technology to achieve their goals.

My experience as VP of Sales at Avectra was invaluable. We experienced tremendous growth delivering and scaling on-demand SaaS offerings for associations of all sizes. MemberSuite is well positioned to do the same.

However, running a professional sales team, understanding your customers’ issues and helping them solve real problems is relevant across all sectors.

In my new role, I want to ensure that any and all engagements with the MemberSuite sales team are the most professional and relevant in the industry for our customers.

The depth and breadth of the associations and their missions is second to none!
