Kamal A. Tahir's Summary

I am a 'Marketechnologist' with international experience driving multichannel profit, volume and share. I create strategies and marketing solutions which utilize consumer insights, platforms, and analytics. I have an MBA in Strategy, Pragmatic Marketing Certificate, and have completed further programs at Kellogg (e-commerce), Cornell (executive leadership) and MIT (Big Data). I am constantly pushing my boundaries by rapidly learning, experimenting, applying, and refining. I have presented at conferences including international Big Data Week, Product and Experience Summit, Online Marketing Summit, Product Development and Management Association, Consumer Goods Technology, and Grocery Manufacturers Association. I have also written for multiple publications about omni-channel, consumer centric retail marketing strategies.

I focus on concepts, themes, and drivers of trends, which allow me evaluate scenarios, identify actionable insights and develop effective strategies. I like to look at things from multiple angles. This is partially a result of my work experience which includes strategy and technology consulting, product management, and strategic marketing. Some of it comes from constantly learning, growing up in 4 very different countries, and studying across Europe, USA and Asia. Most of it however, comes from the excitement of discovery, and pride of leadership to materialize the idea into a winning solution.
