Hello, I'm Jesus Penalver and my goal is to create sustainable growth by creating great teams, products and experiences. The customer is my obsesion and how to satisfy its needs my duty.
I help companies to optimize the revenue channels, identify new market segments, deploy and control strategies to approach new customers and negotiate profitable deals that ensure long-term company success.
I have expertise in several different roles within the games industry, managed multidisciplinar teams of relevant size, increased the main KPI's of the products, negotiated high level deals for Distribution, Monetization and User Acquisition with more than 50 different partners, and now, the MBA provides me with a strategic company vision.
Thanks to my education, professional experience and personality, I have a great mix between soft and hard skils allowing me to be the perfect candidate for creating or consolidating unique customer centric experiences.
I have a wide experience in the digital and mobile ecosystem and I have performed several roles bringing me good learnings for identifying untapped opportunities.
Some of my skills are:
I have shipped more than 20 digital products in different roles but always focused in creating rich and genuine customer experiences. Managing products and adapt them to the customer needs based on internal/external data, optimizing its KPI's and driving succesful partnerships for increasing its reach, are some of the areas that I have developed the most. Digital marketing, including performance marketing and social channels, has changed how the customers are reached and how they interact with the brands, I have developed expertise in controlling vast teams and budgets for achieving sustainable growth.
