MY SUMMARY

Product Innovator

Oliver Happy

Welcome to my online portfolio.

I help tech companies define markets, develop innovative products and execute go-to-market strategies to drive growth.

  • I offer 10+ years global product marketing and SaaS experience, combined with a voracious appetite to learn.

Presently I am acting Head of Marketing for Crunch, a second-stage Fintech startup, where I lead a team to drive growth via well-researched SEM, PPC, Social and automated campaign strategy using Pardot. Cost cutting and the likely sale of the business sees me looking for my next role.

  • Recent projects have included Head of Marketing and Product for Sonar, a big data and analytics startup.
  • Previous projects included an API for a construction information service (BCI Media Group), a mobile app and managing a 7 product SaaS portfolio targeting SMBs
  • I seek a role where I can blend strategy with marketing insights, lead a team to build great products, create data-driven campaigns and drive growth.

Enjoy the read and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
