Cross-Industry & Client Marketing Manager | HSO United States

"We have a core marketing team in the USA – we all work fully remotely but get together annually for our all-hands meeting."

Problem-solving skills and can-do attitude

Katie has been described as somebody that isn’t just a role model in marketing, but a role model for everyone at HSO because of her project management and problem-solving skills and can-do attitude. So, we set about finding out the magic ingredients!

Katie: “I joined HSO in July 2021 from another Microsoft partner where I worked in marketing and sales operations. There are eight of us in the team as a core group in the USA – we all work fully remotely but get together annually for our all-hands meeting.

I am not sure there is a magic ingredient! For me, it all starts with the people I get to work with every day. It is a privilege to work alongside and collaborate with so many top-notch highly skilled and intelligent marketers. It is a joy to learn from one another and support one another and we are all each other’s cheerleaders. Knowing that our work is appreciated and that we are individually appreciated not only as a person, but also for the contribution we make to HSO, makes a huge difference as you can see the impact you are having, and this is very motivating."

High-performing team that encourages team collaboration

Katie: "HSO is very transparent about its direction of travel and the goals for every year and how the company is looking to grow. We are also very clear on individual and team goals, so they have set us up well where we know what we are striving for.

Ever-evolving stands out the most because that is a value I closely hold to my heart, as I always believe in not staying still and keeping up with your own growth and skills and continually evolving those. Performance-driven is a close second. I am part of a high-performing team that encourages team collaboration, dedication, and gives you the power to be a decision-maker. I love the group of people I get to work with daily and pour everything I have into my work."
