Carlene co-founded Cloud9 Insight in 2010. She has spent a lifetime supporting clients to implement CRM solutions to end clients. She started out in her career at IBM where she gained valuable experience supporting European enterprise clients in a consulting capacity with their projects.
Prior to founding Cloud9 Insight, Carlene was a General Manager for the CRM division of Sage and saw the rise of cloud technology. The cloud was changing the power of business owners of SMEs to use technology to gain competitive advantage and scale their growth.
Her previous experience selling Salesforce and Siebel helped her create a vision for how SMEs could adopt, cost effectively, the same technology that enterprise clients have enjoyed since she started her career in the late 90s. The timing of the founding of Cloud9 Insight was planned to support the launch of Microsoft Dynamics being launched as a cloud version for the first time in the UK, an early adopter of cloud.
Initially, when Carlene set up Cloud9 Insight, she moved to Annecy in the Alps with her two kids 6 and 9, where she truly lived the cloud dream – working anywhere without limitation.
