Something people don’t know about me…

I’m a big tennis fan and have played and watched from a young age. I was lucky enough to work on-site at Wimbledon for the London 2012 Olympic Games with access to all areas!

I chose this career path because…

I love the fast-paced nature of OTT, sport, and entertainment. Every week we hear of something new happening!

I describe my job as…

The link between our innovative, technology-focused product team and the wider business.

I’m not sure an ordinary day really exists for me!

Director of Product Operations

My friends and family describe my job as…

Something to do with apps!

I start the day by…

If I don’t have early calls with our teams in Sydney or Prague, I like to start the day with a coffee whilst checking our Deltatre daily news email which summarizes key happenings in the OTT and digital world.

An ordinary day at work goes like this…

I’m not sure an ordinary day really exists for me! My key topics at the moment include coordinating business readiness for a new product launch, preparing annual development plans for my team, supporting team expansion with CV reviews and interviews, managing the product team budget, improving product team tools and processes – and anything else that comes up!

Don’t compare yourself to others, focus on what you want and what you need to do to get there

I know it’s been a good day when…

I’ve helped at least three people to resolve a question or query they may have.

The best piece of advice I’ve been given is…

Don’t compare yourself to others, focus on what you want and what you need to do to get there.

Outside of work I like to…

Go fast! I love cars, motorsport, and skiing, generally the quicker the better. I’m also really interested in the wine industry and am slowly building up a small collection of interesting wines from around the world.

A song that gets me in the zone is…

Right Here, Right Now by Fatboy Slim.

I am passionate about…

Helping Deltatre secure its market-leading position in a dynamic and complex industry.

To me, the definition of success is… making a positive difference within the business you work for and on those around you.

I’m excited about the future of…

5G. I’m hoping that 5G will further disrupt the traditional Pay TV market, causing more households to ‘cut the cord’ and move solely onto OTT services for their sport and entertainment needs.


Watch out over the coming weeks as more of our staff let share a day in their life with us. We’ll also be sharing snippets on Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
