Contribution: At boutique consultancy Chartic, I identified opportunities for growth, assessed new markets, developed growth portfolios, and crafted go-to-market strategies (product positioning, target segments, channel strategy and pricing ). 

Chartic works with global market leaders in complex industrial markets to identify and capture growth opportunities.  We build clear, fact-based strategies then enable clients to move quickly and decisively to both capture core market share and to successfully expand into strategic adjacent markets.  We get the 'hard-to-get data to understand how markets actually work what our clients needed to do to out-think and out-maneuver competitors.
