Melis in a few words

Sales & Business Development Guru who loves turning opportunity into revenue!

I am a natural business developer both in B2B & B2C. I also have experience managing teams and driving towards success. I quickly grasp technology and I'm able to transfer complex ideas into simple understandable benefits for clients.

I'm highly ambitious, target driven and have a passion for working with customers. Solution-selling is what I do best. Selling added value that will result in making customers' lives easier and more successful.

Being a great listener, enables me to understand customer pain points and look for solutions that can resolve their issues. I build long-lasting relationships that rely on trust and reliability.

I fit easily into a team environment, have expertise in start-up, scale-up and the corporate world which makes me highly adaptable.
