Peter Skillman was Head of Design for HERE up until today.

Amongst Nokians, we knew him better as the guy who came from Palm back in the fall of September 2012. Skillman was then the new Nokia guy involved in the fantastic looking WebOS (as VP of Palm design), and then as Nokia’s VP MeeGo Ux and Services design brought us the amazing Swipe UI in the Nokia N9.

Although the N9 was a one of a kind, VP Smart Devices Ux Design Skillman presented us with some N9 like Nokia Asha 501, with Swipe and a few of the magic from the Swipe UI

Today, he’s now GM of Smart Internet of Things at Microsoft.

My Passion: Creating great products and experiences.

20-year veteran of creative product design and team leadership combining user-centered experience design and engineering acumen.

Experience managing and inspiring global teams driving Industrial Design, Product Design Engineering, User Interface Design, and creative problem solving focused on building outstanding consumer products. Comfortable with the fundamentals of electrical and SW engineering.

Cheers jiipee for the tip!
