Received 100 Million in Seed
I attended conferences and built the support for that. I ran webinars and other lead generation working with a partner of mine from a previous company network. The result was the same, as always. People "trusted" the new consistent branding, understood the story and how and why to buy and sales went up.
I left because I wanted to go to NYC or San Francisco, but also because the CEO and VP of Products were reporting back to the CEO in the Netherlands, incorrectly, and saying they did my work. It just felt like I was working 12 hour days so they could do that. I literally only worked. I lived alone and met one friend that year, for a catch up dinner. The remainder of the year, I spent working and going for walks around a resevoir at the end of our street and on calls all day, at the weekends. I worked non-stop. I was also working with a friend to design a line of hand bags, at this point. That took a few hours of my week, less. I took myself out of that situation, with Xebialabs, after already delivering perfect branding to Xebialabs.
Before I moved to NYC, I wanted to take on one more quick project. I took a VP of Marketing role with Xebialabs. They were an extension of Xebia with no branding, a splash website created by an engineer and they wanted to be introduced to the USA.
The CEO had some English and I ghost wrote his quotes, etc. There were a few others at the office. Two in sales and a VP of Products who showed up, sometimes. He was out sky diving and joining groups and enjoying his time in the USA. Taking 1/2 days on Monday and Friday. I was working all week and at the office at the weekends. It was difficult to catch him. I worked non-stop. Totally different work ethics. Which is fine, if he didn't try to take the credit for my long hours.
I brought to them what I am good at, elegant branding and synthesis. I worked with them on brand story, messaging. I found an out-sourced designer and we worked to build a beautiful new website presence. I wrote a white paper for them, in the first few weeks, showing the link from CIO, to developer and how Dev Ops was evolving and where they fit. I worked with them on diagrams and such to elevate the visual presence.

Managing Director, at Cachet
VP of Engineering
Oonagh did a great job working with us at Cachet to assist us with opening new sales opportunities for the Xebialab's products in the UK. I would highly recommend her as an industrious, creative and skillful marketing manager for high tech software solutions.
Oonagh took our company's brand, which was reasonably well established in Europe and took it to the next level expanding it here and building it up in the USA, virtually from scratch. She set up our marketing strategy from a high level, then followed through with execution. She is a pleasure to work with and got the results we needed.
