Ochinero is responsible for driving strategic planning and shaping growth initiatives for Maana’s integrated marketing efforts.

Prior to joining Maana, Ochinero led marketing for the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) telecommunications industry business as the Worldwide Senior Director of Marketing. During her tenure, she was responsible for marketing its Telco portfolio which included taking HPE’s Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) solution from its lab to commercial deployment and launching its highly successful Telco-focused “New Business of the Network” campaign.

Before HPE, Ochinero ran marketing at a number of early-stage companies resulting in acquisitions by Sun Microsystems, Nuance Communications and NBC Internet. As a director at Cunningham Communications, a prominent public relations firm in Silicon Valley during the early stages of the era, she managed the positioning projects and accounts of Adobe, Novell and RealNetworks.

Ochinero has participated on teams driving awareness around many tech industry firsts including Ameritech’s home voicemail, Openwave’s mobile Internet browser and General Magic’s Portico (co-named Serengeti) which was the Siri of its era. She started her career at public relations agencies in Chicago.  One of her clients, Andersen Consulting (now Accenture), hired and relocated her to Silicon Valley to launch its Palo Alto Center for Strategic Technology.

A recognized industry leader, Ochinero was selected to participate in HPE’s Executive Leadership Education program and has been a panelist and moderator at various industry events.
