  • Overseeing the delivery of a new ERP system (Netsuite) and providing input where required.
  • Relentlessly prioritising across all the areas you are accountable for. You have only a certain amount of time in the week. You'll make sure you're spending to deliver the most impact for the business.

  • Manage a team of two Product Managers.
