Research Scientist, Europe and LATAM
MIT Center for Information Systems Research (MIT CISR)
Nils researches competitive digital innovation and how organizations are redesigning themselves to realize greater impact from a diverse portfolio of innovation efforts. In 2010, he co-founded with CIONET the annual European CIO of the Year Awards to raise awareness of especially-accomplished digital leaders.
Based in Madrid, Nils is responsible for both fostering relations with organizations from Europe and Latin America and conducting research on how firms maximize business value and minimize risks from digital.
Head of Technology Deployment
Rui Pedro Silva has completed his undergraduate degree in Business Studies, and his Master in Business Administration in Madrid. As part of his career, he has gone through all the different levels inside of a technology organization. This experience has provided him with enough background to make informed decisions while faced with complicated challenges in his management positions.
Over the past 15 years, he has worked in multiple countries, including Germany, UK and Spain, and since 2016 he is working at A.P. Moller-Maersk, leading the IT function fully focused on Maersk’s customers. His team covers the end-to-end process of technology activities related to customer solutions, playing a key role in Maersk’s growth and customer onboarding.
Mr. Pedro Silva sees himself an outlier in the technology world, as it has not been his area of studies. He sees it though, as a significant competitive advantage, as it allowed him to be a better bridge between technical teams and business oriented people. All his technical expertise comes out of self-learning activities, but it has provided him a very clear picture of what is possible and what is not. One of his most common statements is that “The gap between what people want and what others understand of it, will dictate how successfully that project can be delivered”. Closing that gap, has always been his driver.
