Head of Global IT Security
With two decades of leadership experience, which encompasses guiding both individual leaders and virtual teams, my leadership philosophy has crystallized into a fundamental belief. I understand leadership not as a self-claimed title, but as an accolade bestowed by others over time, subject to constant scrutiny by one's environment. Throughout my career, I've found genuine satisfaction in instances where I've been acknowledged as a leader by various stakeholders—be it direct reports, superiors, peers, partners, or customers. This recognition from diverse perspectives validates the authenticity of my leadership approach, rooted in earned respect and consistent impact on those I lead and collaborate with.
