Michalina Kiera


Michalina is a technology marketing professional, obsessed by the new frontiers of cloud computing. She is responsible for SoftLayer's marketing in the EMEA region, being part of the company's first European team. She has been working with companies from the gaming space for almost 4 years. She finds the industry especially interesting for a few reasons: from the challenge they create for a cloud platform provider, to the people she gets to interact with, and to the fact that she’s a secret game-fanatic, playing games since she was 6 on her dad’s Atari. For close to a decade, Michalina has worked with a whole spectrum of businesses, from corporate tycoons to startups. She has been part of the market’s transition from traditional IT model to empowered 3rd platform. She started her adventure with technology as a little girl doodling on her brother’s mainframe cards, moving on to handling strategic marketing for telecommunication and datacenter solutions provider and now being with SoftLayer, an IBM company that since its inception has been revolutionizing the world of cloud computing. Michalina is an International Relationships MSc and International Strategic Marketing & Export Management graduate.
