We are thrilled to welcome Silvia Piedra as our new Chief Talent Officer. Get to know more about Silvia’s background, leadership philosophy, and inspiration to see why she’s the perfect addition to the team.

1. What’s your leadership philosophy? 

I believe that people can become the best version of themselves and achieve great things when they are empowered and trusted.  I lead my team by communicating with transparency, defining goals, showing them the impact of their work, and supporting them in making the best choices, acting always with a balance between passion and discipline. 

2. What app can’t you live without? 

Whatsapp!  It keeps me connected to my personal and professional worlds. It allows me to solve so many issues in parallel…

3. What is your favorite place you’ve ever traveled? 

I have to choose 2:  Greece and England.  Both countries have a fascinating mix of history, unique sights and so many ways to have fun!

4. Who inspires you and why? 

There are several leaders, authors, and regular people who inspire me.  One is Dale Carnegie, who had a very pragmatic, kind and smart way to look at things and educate people on his learnings.  Also, women who have been trailblazers like Billie Jean King, not afraid to speak up and push for equality and empowerment in a time when this was not seen well by many.
