Why do you like working at Gartner?
Gartner brings you the opportunity to learn about business challenges which companies are facing currently and will face in the near future.
IT is becoming more important than ever before by becoming a tool that provides competitive advantage within the market.
I love being an active part of this environment. It is the best way to broadly learn, expand your professional network and have the chance to grow in a fast-paced company.
What part of your job do you enjoy most?
I enjoy when one of my clients shares positive feedback as a result of the impact our insight has in helping to make a critical decision. Furthermore, the relationships that I am able to build with our customers is such an amazing experience.
How did you get into your current role?
I was working as an Account Delivery Manager at a High Tech Company and I was in the field of IT services. Gartner was always a reference within the IT market in terms of strategy and technology trends for End User companies so I always paid attention to Gartner’s research. When I had the opportunity to join Gartner, I could not refuse it.
What is a fun fact about you?
I love sports in general: football, running, tennis and more. Equally I love to travel. When I have free time I always try to discover new places, foods and cultures.
