Sales Director UK & Ireland, Diabolocom
Mercedes is assisting the company’s rapid expansion as it enters new markets, primarily supporting Diabolocom’s development in the UK and Ireland by building strategic alliances and expanding its impressive client roster. Prior to joining Diabolocom, Mercedes was at Webdam as its sole enterprise sales representative in the EMEA. Mercedes’ specific focus on the UK market saw the company engage with new brands and develop strong alliances with well-known system integrators such as Salesforce. Mercedes also brings her experience working with other notable cloud-based service providers such as AVepoint and Zendesk, the latter a Diabolocom partner. At the time of starting with Zendesk Mercedes was its only sales representative in the Southern European market. Now the company employs more than 20 sales representatives for this market alone, indicative of Mercedes’ proficiency and the integral role she played in this team. Working in various cloud software start-ups Mercedes also played an important part in building their market reputation from the ground up, a testament to her industry-specific insight and initiative.
