Headshot

I'm a highly ambitious Danish sales professional with 3 years of experience in complex B2B sales across a variety of industries, with a consistent track record of over achievement and recognition as a top sales professional.

I am currently focused on selling OneTrust’s market leading data privacy management solution into the Nordic market, across the SMB, Mid-Market and Large Corp segment(s). During my first 8 months at the organisation I’ve been promoted from an SMB role into Mid-Market and Large Corp. I had the #1 new logo attainment with-in my offering for Q2, and have represented the organisation speaking at numerous events.  

 

In my previous role at Xactly I sourced over £3.500.000 of valid pipeline and was recognised as a team MVP, Top Performer and was named to the top 50 UK SDR’s. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Business and Marketing Management from Oxford Brookes University, during my studies I worked with brands such as Pampeano and The Healthy Juice Company on development of campaigns. I had internships at the Copenhagen based SaaS start-ups Praice and JourneyXP supporting Sales, LeadGen and Marketing efforts – assuming a part-time Sales Enablement role at JourneyXP during my second year of study.
