Sandrine Modesti

Service Account Manager

Hi, I’m Sandrine and I am a service account manager.

My customer service career started in hospitality 20 years ago. I have always thrived on getting service right for my customers, whatever role I’ve been in. I’ve worked in ITIL Service Management for over 15 years, and believe every role I have worked in gives me an edge in getting things right for our customers. Cloud Gateway is a great big family and it’s an honour to work with so many people that strive to be the best.

Before joining Cloud Gateway I spent 15 years working at one of the UK’s largest banks where I led my team to a number of industry awards for best in class solutions.
