As a senior product marketing manager, I focus on helping organizations turn sophisticated innovation into a commercial success.

With my engineering background, the technical aspects of products and how to convert them in values for customers always inspired me. In my role as a tech & product evangelist, I like to explain from employees to C-level how they could take advantage of an innovation or a product for their business. Over the last 14 years at three high-tech companies (Bosch, Softbank Robotics, Scortex), I have worked with four industries - manufacturing (automotive, aerospace), robotics, agriculture, security - across Europe (Germany, Italy, Netherlands...), North America, and China.

Dedicated to finding the perfect match between a product and a market, I think "out of the box" and solve the customer problems with a product approach. It is essential not to reinvent the wheel and share information (vision, strategy, business roadmap) across teams, so I’m keen on digitizing organizations.

From lead generation to sales enablement, I assist and coach the sales team to reach their goals by providing the adapted process and tools (especially for complex sales). As a team member, I like to go on the field and convert leads in customers. I also used to develop partnerships to create an ecosystem as an accelerator for company growth.

My entrepreneur, teamwork, and resilience mindset helps me to achieve challenges in multicultural environments. I’m interested in working with Deep Tech innovations (both hardware and software). My preferred technologies are robotics, artificial intelligence, and computer vision, but I always go for discovering new ones.

I love meeting new people over a cup of coffee, learning new things and discuss job or business opportunities, so please feel free to say hello via Linkedin or craix@startandgrowth.com.
