Global Head of Innovation, Financing Industry
I am currently head of Innovation and Digital Transformation for Santander Global Corporate Banking. My career began in the financial services sector in 1998. After initially working on the elaboration and roll out of electronic platforms across Europe and in the UK, I gained a wide experience across the Corporate and Investment Banking industry. Leveraging on my background in Corporate Transaction Banking and Capital Markets businesses, I spent the last 7 years in London focusing on digital transformation and innovation within large corporations.
My passion for innovation and new technologies is also reflected through my recent ventures. Beyond my traditional corporate daily commitment to my firm, I am also a private investor in technology companies, from which I learn every day. As I thought that education should also take the full benefits of this revolution, I have recently launched the Singularity University chapter in London with I am to better connect the Silicon Valley to the UK.
My diversified background shows a strong interest on the Digital Transformation of Innovation. I am at a stage of my life where I want to leverage on this knowledge and share it with other people and organisations keen to embrace this mutation.
