    • Group Head of Innovation

      It’s impossible to thrive in industries like technology, sport, and entertainment without innovation. And as Head of Innovation, it’s Pietro’s role to not only ensure this mindset is at the centre of everything Deltatre does, but also to open opportunities for everyone within the company to share their ideas.

      First working part-time in Deltatre aged just 18 as an In-House Operator, it was always his dream to join the company fully once he had completed his studies. After studying Management Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Turin, he specialised in Innovation Management with the ambition of leading the unit within the company. “I’m a big sports fan, a tech enthusiast, and I really enjoy innovating, so it was a perfect fit,” he says.

      Pietro centred his master’s thesis on the innovation process at Deltatre, and he now leads the global unit which coordinates the innovative efforts within the company. His responsibilities include leading the Research and Development team, a remit which involves investigating rising technologies and their potential use for clients. Ideas can come from anywhere, but he is responsible for ensuring robust processes are in place for ideas to be shared and implemented.

      A stand-out moment to date involves the first innovation initiative he contributed to; a speech recognition system to assist operators during data gathering operations. And it’s this ability to make a tangible difference for Deltatre’s clients that continues to drive him. “It's amazing to know that you've contributed to Deltatre's offering and that your work is seen by billions of people," he says. Always wanting to be seen as an enabler for potential within the business, he says, “I want to provide the means for everyone to contribute and to be recognised.”

      Although creativity has always been essential for the company, he believes the rate of change within the technology landscape means it’s never been more important for a centralised unit to champion innovation every day. “From a technological point of view, the industry is perfectly set to provide some of the most breakthrough discoveries available on the market,” he says.

      Outside of work, he enjoys golf, tennis, football, and travel.
