Amar Patel joins 47 Degrees as UK's Business Development Director

We’d like to welcome Amar Patel to the 47 Degrees team! Amar is joining us as the new Business Development Director for our London, UK office.

Amar has a BSc in Computer Science with Cognitive Science and an MBA from the University of Greenwich where he graduated with distinction at the top of his class. He’s gone on to wear many hats in his 20-year career, including bad junior Borland C++ developer, foreign exchange trader, change management consultant, Mr RFP, and dot-com survivor.

He’s also spent much of his career creating and selling value propositions and projects in the CMS / CXP space, to clients like Dyson, Nationwide Bank, Concentra, Ford, Telegraph, Virgin Media, Novozymes, and Pioneer DJ.

In his new role at 47 Degrees, Amar will play a fundamental role in developing plans and strategies to grow our footprint in the United Kingdom as well as maintain client relations and foster new sales relationships.

During his spare time, Amar enjoys spending time with his wife, Virginia and his daughter Sofia. His wife is from Madrid where they frequently spend time, so he fits in quite nicely with our company culture. Or as we’d say in Spain, “Esta casado con Virginia, que es de Madrid, y los dos tienen una hija de cuatro años y medio, Sofía.”

We look forward to a great future with Amar at the helm of our UK Business team! You can find Amar on Twitter or learn more about his work on LinkedIn.
