For seven years I was head of the Geo Product Management team in Google EMEA. I was responsible for some of the largest global features on Maps, including Directions by car, public transportation, biking and walking. Also I was responsible for the EMEA rollout of features like Street View. I managed our global emerging markets strategy and was the global privacy lead for Geo. Maps is one of Google's few > 1bn user products.

Currently I am leading a global team in Google Shopping. We make sure that users find great products with the right information on Google, and that merchants are happy with their experiences. Our mission is to create a win-win for users, merchants and Google around commerce searches on Google.
