Fundamentally restructured the sales and marketing teams to recognize and maximize market and category trends by right sizing, reorganizing and upgrading talent. Reduced headcount inline with adjusted market potential and OPEX targets saving around $2.5mn in payroll costs alone.

Increased both ASP and Gross Margin 2010 v 2009 through a clearly thought out and stable road map, maximizing channel margin efficiencies with a value driven pricing model and improving the product blend (specifically from low to mid end). Increased TomTom market share in Ireland from a historic position of around 25% value to an average of 40% value through restructure of UK based resource, recruitment of local Country Manager, complete shake up of the distribution base and better focus within retail partners on our strategy. Developed new future revenue streams in bringing TomTom Assist Breakdown Cover to market. More potential relationships were in the pipeline (e.g. National Car Parks) which also add to our strategy for Road and Traffic Authority Recruited and developed a new and culturally diverse local team (blending Dutch, French and Australian employees) to help bring performance to the next level, as well as helping give a more integrated and aligned European approach to the market as the category matured.
