In close cooperation with Regional Sales and Business Development, Customer Experience & Product Management and our Marketing team you identify best fit market segments through research and interviews, and you come with winning strategies to activate them.

You map out the opportunity of segments, how to activate them, and follow up on business results. You are the driving force to build or increase brand recognition in new and existing segments.
 
Next to that you will also play an active role in our enterprise-wide offering of solutions, spanning form lobby to meeting room, including projectors, video walls and control software.
