Team Highlight
Building and developing high performing teams is the biggest challenge and the biggest reward any leader can have, and I’ve been lucky enough to have done that twice in my career so far. What excites me most about doing this at Attraqt is the team is already great, just imagine what we can accomplish over the next few years with a relentless focus on improving our performance.

Personal Highlight
Learning and developing faster and faster the older I get and doing it while balancing family and work-life like a Jedi.

Leads our Global Sales team and supports customer growth

Ally leads commercial teams to support growth in key international markets and guides existing customers with their expansion plans. Key to her role is helping customers access Attraqt’s product innovation pipeline to help support their growth plans, as well as the onboarding of new customers.

Team Highlight
I’ve absolutely loved working with the teams across Attraqt and Fredhopper to integrate the sales functions and become the successful team in Northern Europe that it is. Exciting to see this team dynamic now being replicated across global markets.
