You are focused on optimal and effortless customer outcomes and not only believe these are the experiences that drive customer loyalty and advocacy but have first hand expertise in leading your team to drive these initiatives to fruition as proof. You have a proven track record of building trusting cross functional relationships regardless of domain, are a skilled communicator, are able to effectively navigate through ambiguity, and thrive in a fast paced and extremely dynamic environment.
