The unusual path of going from Marketing & PR Management to Business Development in the last 7 years spent at Samsung Electronics allowed Georgian Dobre to diverge from the traditional approach on IT Market solutions and to have a holistic view on the customer needs.
Having a broad range of products under his development, locally and abroad, from photo to printing to SSD to Smart Signage and Monitors, further increased Geo’s requisite to think out-of-the box and to innovate in order to reach or to maintain no. 1 market position for Samsung. The broad range of products also offered him the opportunity to create innovative ecosystems that addressed specific customer needs, like automation of work process with printing software implementation, or remote/enhanced team work with the Samsung Flip interactive whiteboard.
One of the latest implementations has materialized in the largest sale for 49’’ curved ultra wide monitor in Europe, as part of a global company relocation project in Bucharest.
The ecosystem that Geo is currently most interested in is the transformation of the smartphone into a computer with the Monitor + DeX solution. This innovative approach comes in very handy to corporate customers trying to get by in the post-COVID situation and drive for results with less cost.
With all this unique business insight, Geo will offer valuable information on how to put tech to work when it most matters.
