Will Douch's Summary

I’m educated to degree level in Business Information Technology with additional qualifications in ITIL. I have over six years experience in service management, providing an excellent customer experience in a variety of areas throughout the product lifecycle, including pre-sales, service delivery, service assurance and change management. Previous to this, I worked for several years building a solid foundation in customer-facing, service delivery roles for both Colt and British Telecom. I have a comprehensive knowledge of managed services, data, voice and IP products.

I have excellent communication and negotiation skills, and the ability to build robust working relationships with a wide range of professionals. Always reliable and hard working, I can effectively lead a team yet work equally well fitting within a wider professional network.

One of my greatest strengths is problem solving in a diplomatic and considered manner. My focus is always to reach a positive outcome for my customer – this may entail liaising with various teams across Europe and India – going above and beyond the expected parameters of my role. I take satisfaction in knowing I always apply myself in providing the best service I can for my customers.
