Dr. Marc Thom is looking after Sony’s strategic partnerships and alliances in the area of the Internet of Things (IoT) and for the venture capital area of the Sony Innovation Fund, where investments in start-ups are granted.

He is a well known speaker and driver for innovation and digital transformation in several areas of the industry.
