Nils Schweizer

Director of Operations, Europe

What are your credentials and past experience for working in your position?

I started my career as an automotive IT Consultant and worked with several industry-leading clients (BMW, Audi, MAN, Siemens) in Business Intelligence.  

After spending 2.5 years in New Jersey to build the base of the company's Service and Project Management, I went back to Germany to establish the PM practice. In addition, I introduced agile methodologies to the organization.  

Most recently, I inherited the role of Head Business Unit Project Management which included accountability for all large-scale IT Projects and Programs and directed a team of 15 Senior Project Managers.  

I hold a B.Sc. in Business Administration and a German Diploma (Dipl.-Kfm. Univ.) in IT Business Economics.

What do you like about working at S44?

We have a work/life balancing culture that allows us to work on cutting-edge projects. The people I work with continually strive to achieve goals, and it’s an environment that actively encourages learning. I love that it doesn’t matter what level you enter the company; there’s always room to grow and develop.

What’s your background?

Growing up in Munich, I loved eating mashed potatoes with spinach and Pizza. A significant influence on me was my parents - their careers in business Consultancy and Sales Director showed me what I needed to do to be successful.  

Before working for S44, I worked at BMW (Process IT), MAN (Production of Diesel Generators), and Siemens (Purchasing).

What are the values that drive you?

I’m a natural-born innovator and love nothing more than working on great projects with awesome people. I value progress and see my team improve and develop their skills, knowledge, and experience daily.
