Miriam's IT industry experience across the US, Australia, & New Zealand, has spanned sales and operational roles and has involved sourcing, consulting, strategy and management. Miriam has grown multiple business units from the ground up into multi-million dollar operations.

 

Prior to Navigate Clear, Miriam established Certus’ licensing practice, which focused on enabling clients to gain maximum benefit from their IBM software investments.
