Senior IT Executive, eager on new technologies and a Cloud Computing Evangelist, always 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 “Vice President of IT – Head of IT” for a group of companies while located in the Middle East (Dubai – UAE) and, lately, as “Director of Technology and Systems Spain” ( CIO / CTO Spain ) for a multinational based in Madrid. 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.
I am always on the path of learning as there is no such thing as limit to knowledge. I am grateful for the recognition I’ve received by peers and customers who often describe me as a highly experienced business advisor with passion for results; adept of collaborative leadership style and with courage to lead major change.
My expertise covers end to end IT, operational & financial management alongside service delivery with a clear focus on improving the wider business operations implementing different methodologies (PMI – Project Management Office, Agile & ITIL), deploying and certifying services following international standards (PCI (Payment Card Industry), different ISOs, implementing and adopting business solutions (ERP & CRM) or virtualized services (AWS-Azure): SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, DRaaS. CCIE&PMP.
Bilingual English-Spanish with intermediate level of Arabic being improved.
