Prior to leading Naver Labs Europe, Dr Monica Beltrametti was Xerox Chief Services Research Officer. She directed research related to services across the research centres in California and upstate New York (PARC), in Grenoble, France and India, whose creation she oversaw.
Beltrametti was also vice president of the Xerox Innovation Group and director of the Xerox Research Centre Europe (XRCE) which she helped establish in 1993.

She supported and created new ventures that were later acquired by companies such as SAP and EMC. In her previous roles she was responsible for university computer and network services, the development of operating systems and research in physics. Beltrametti holds a Ph.D. in theoretical astrophysics from the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics in Munich, Germany.
