How Theo is building a better working world

“I’ve learned from my experience that if you don’t have proper data governance and strategy, it’s quite challenging to embrace digital in this sector. I bring a strong background and perspective on digital transformation, industry 4.0, innovation and operational excellence to our teams to transform our core business practices, and adopt new business models. That helps our clients stay competitive, while also reducing operational risks and improving productivity for the future.”
