Senior IT Executive, eager on new technologies and a Business Transformation & Cloud Computing Evangelist with vision, passion and creativity.
I started my career working as a technician firstly in Madrid and then in London where I grew as an IT professional and as a person. After this I expanded my professional career by working at worldwide level in multiple positions such as CIO “Vice President of IT – Head of IT” for a group of companies while located in the Middle East (Dubai – UAE). Since then I have held the CIO role in different multinationals leading business transformacion. Living with multiple cultures is what helped me grow awareness on what makes us different but also what makes us become better together, as human beings – learning from each other.
My career gathers over 25 years of experience in Strategy, Human Capital, Finance, Technology & Management across multiple industries. I have successfully helped to build new business units or remodelled old ones. I understand the importance of leadership, talent and culture. If I was asked what my strengths are I would be inclined to say business transformation and strong commercial acumen.
