Victor was a Senior Consultant for the Challenge Prize Centre.

Prior to Nesta, Victor worked in social and environmental projects focused in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals with the Innovation and Technology for Development Centre (itdUPM) at Madrid Technical University (UPM) and in Uganda with United Nations Global Pulse, the flagship innovation initiative of the United Nations Secretary-General on big data for development.

Previously Victor had worked in the private and public sectors, first as a Technical Engineer, analysing and setting up mobile networks in Africa and Asia, and then in the Embassy of Spain in Sydney, helping technological Spanish companies do business in Australia and promoting bilateral actions between both countries. Afterwards he was appointed Country Manager of a telecommunication company in Chile, where he oversaw the deployment of the subsidiary company in the country and the definition and implementation of its strategic plan. He was also the Executive Director of the Spanish association of telecom and energy companies with solutions to improve sustainability, where he fostered partnerships between public and private organisations to achieve a more sustainable economy through innovative solutions using the latest technologies such as big data and internet of things.

Victor is a telecommunication engineer specialised in strategy, innovation and sustainable development. He has an International MBA, a Master in Strategies and Technologies for Development and more than 10 years of international experience in EMEA (Spain, Italy, Oman, Botswana, Uganda), LATAM (Chile, Argentina) and Asia-Pacific (Australia, China). In his spare time, he enjoys water sports, especially scuba diving, and he is passionate about travelling.
