Emily Jasper, MBA
Associate Director, Product Management at S&P Global Market Intelligence
What do I want to do with my life? I want to help a company make a big difference in the way it meets customer needs. It can be through changing the product offering and finding that one item that changes your day, or it might be the way I can tell you about our firm. It might be in the relationships I manage that help companies come together to get you what you need. It can be in the online and mobile presence that has suddenly established that we are a part of your regular web routine. I am a Strategic Relationship Manager with a deep knowledge of linking company strategy with sales execution. My specialties include leveraging alliances, channels, and social media, and I know I can help your firm.
