MediaGeniX has introduced the role of portfolio manager essentially to
• be the undisputable custodian for customer delight
• refine our WHATS'On product and business strategy for our customer segments
• drive the effectiveness of our project delivery

Portfolio managers own a segment of customers and lead a dedicated team. They maintain the customer relationships, overlook the successful delivery of projects and ensure that their team members have the stimulating work environment and operational context to excel in what they do.
