Axel Segebrecht Scrum Product Owner & Digital Project Manager
I have a track record for delivering complex, enterprise web and digital objectives, for large national and international organisations, on time and on budget.

I add value by shaping the product in innovative and progressive ways, utilising the latest technologies when necessary
I am passionate about creating successful customer experiences for both my clients and the customer
I have long-term partnerships with clients through consistent delivery and results

With a broad yet deep technical knowledge, and the expertise acquired through running my own business, I can bridge the gap between tech and business to safely deliver projects.

I can bring over 20 years of experience managing projects in marketing and IT for clients in the UK and Europe. A strong consultative and marketing agency background means I can satisfy a wide range of challenging stakeholders’ needs effectively.
