How has your career grown since starting at the company?

As the first US employee of Mendix back in 2008, I started our Boston office with Derek Roos and have held every sales role since then. After we signed our first US client in 2008, I became a commercial account executive, and then led our Global Inside sales team until 2015. For the past 2 years I have focused on our most Strategic accounts.
