Welcoming Ivan on board as a Product/Marketing Manager added an important element to my top-class team at Sony. Ivan excelled in many areas of the business from budget management and achievement to kicking off a variety of marketing programs using a blend of creativity and practicality that enhanced the performance of the team. Ivan’s versatile capabilities allowed him to champion impromptu PR assignments for multiple product categories delivering essential Sony communication. It’s no surprise to me to see Ivan managing the Mobile App space as a Product Innovator. It was only a matter of time. He will be a valuable asset to any team looking for someone who knows the business and is passionate about creating and marketing Mobile Products and Apps in the mobile and wireless space.
