Mauricio Gonzalez de la Fuente, General Manager, CMO
20 years in product, business development, global strategy and business leadership roles with P&L ownership of a $1.5B business.
Experienced business and product leader with a broad and deep skill set. Colleagues describe me as an innovator with the end-to-end vision and execution rigor to lead products and business opportunities, from idea and market validation, to recruiting world-class high-performance talent to build and deliver customer and partner value.
I thrive leveraging data and analytics to solve complex problems. I excel at building trust and partnering across organizations and stakeholders to drive organization scale results. As an entrepreneur, I am curious to know how things work and have the technical fluency to lead product and IP roadmaps along with customer focused go-to market execution. Ideas, plans, trust, people development, results, data, learning, and course correction summarize my focus and passion. I embrace the thrill of making sense out of chaos, creating solutions, and bringing them to market.
