VP International Sales

“[Our company's] new product development had become plagued by creeping incrementalism.  To maintain our position as the product and market leader, we had to shift our focus toward innovative solutions that delivered compelling value to our end-user customers.  We engaged Gillum Strategy Partners to conduct a series of internal innovation sessions.  They focused the group on identifying capabilities that would enable customers to solve business problems or improve their business processes.   The impact of the GSP team transcended working sessions  – they energized our engineers and product managers, and changed the way we conceived new product ideas.  Gillum Strategy Partners has facilitated a culture change at [our company], which is filling our development pipeline with new concepts and ideas for delivering unequalled value to end-user customers.”
