Peter E. Braun

iLocator GmbH
Located in Lucerne, Switzerland, Peter has more than 25 years of experience as a serial entrepreneur as well as in various senior and top management positions in the aerospace and automotive industries.

He has been a digital thinker from early on and is passionately investing time, money and ideas in building up companies that offer services, solutions and products for the future digital work environment.

Initially an Angel investor in iLocator (www.ilocator.com), he assumed the role as CEO of this deep-tech company. Under Peter’s lead, it has managed the transition from a startup to a thriving business within the last 5 years. iLocator provides hardware and software solutions that are based on AI, machine learning and high-end data collection for the asset management of (soon-to-be) smart cities and regions.

One secret to success in the digital age is to manage technical challenges and align human resources to it in the best way possible, e.g.:
• Finding the right way of implementing a “new work” concept, based on joint values as well as working independently and with self-discipline at the same time
• Attracting and bonding [recruiting] the best fitting staff and talents (personality, skills, character, reward-mechanisms)
• Implementing the technical infrastructure and tools to connect teams working remotely all over the world
• Ensuring that all data security guidelines are fulfilled and respected from the get-go
• Applying new ways of leadership built on trust, transparency and open communication
• Making sure that there is a great team spirit as well as a solid communication that helps building and growing a business.

At iLocator, people from 10 different countries are striving for product excellence and a quick market penetration in a very competitive business environment.

Peter will share some insights about the challenges they are mastering, speaking about:
