Things I worked on
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 > 2bn user products
Google Shopping is a multi billion dollar business driving product searches on Google and connecting hundreds of millions of users with the biggest retailers in the world such as Walmart, Target, Macy’s and Amazon. For 5 years I led global Product Management for all retailer aspects (data, merchant tools, user interfaces, systems) of this two digit dollar billion business.
