Experience

Being the lead digital designer and developer I headed up the Global Web team across BakBone in their UK, EMEA and US channel and partner portals. I championed creativity, clarity and consistency, and delivered localised Marketo online marketing campaigns integrated into SFDC. Quest Software acquired BakBone Software in January 2011.

Prior to and during the acquisition and migration of BakBone's NetVault data protection to Quest Software, I maintained the brand look and feel online for all regional BakBone Websites. With the technical know-how needed I brought channel online marketing concepts to life, delivered innovative communications and made the most of the latest techniques and ideas.
