Oliver Fink
Director, XYZ at HERE Technologies, Here Technologies

Oliver Fink is the lead technical architect at HERE XYZ. He’s worked at HERE (previously under Nokia and NAVTEQ) for over 15 years to bring maps alive by making them more collaborative, open, and personal. Previously, he started EcoTec GmbH, where he served as managing director, worked as a Microsoft provider, and consulted for banks and other industry leading business. After selling the company at the peak of the dot-com era, he worked as technical architect for Noblestar. Hooked to computers since the age of 10, he studied law and dropped out to start his own company long before such startups were fashionable. A technology scout for over 30 years, he’s explored cutting-edge tech in cities like London, Boston, San Francisco, and New York as well as a lot of smaller yet also mostly very nice places.
