Head of Innovation

Nils’ passion for physics, innovation and business saw him move from researcher at Strathclyde University to Head of Innovation at M Squared in just three years. His flair for orchestrating innovation-led projects is born out of his skill at managing large, multi-organisational teams, his scientific understanding of proposals and his ability to align projects with key business priorities.

Nils is unrelenting in his desire to take new ideas out into the real world, gaining essential market feedback, refining designs, improving software and systems and helping to ensure that new products are viable and market-ready.
