Edwin van Nuil, Co-Founder and CEO, Oblivion – A Xebia Company
After a study of computer science, Edwin van Nuil (1971) worked as a consultant in the Internet and Security field. In 1998 he co-founded Oblivion b.v. and worked as the CTO on innovative projects for many dutch enterprises. Always on the lookout for emerging technologies, he started using Amazon Web Services (AWS) the second month after launch (2006) and created a Cloud consulting practice in Oblivion for the following years. First primarily focused on the technology but also saw that Cloud was disruptive and needed a transformation by focusing on the whole cloud adoption. In 2014 he co-founded Oblivion Cloud Control b.v., entirely focused on AWS, and became the first and still only Dutch-based AWS Premier Consulting partner. In 2021 OBLCC was acquired by Xebia Group, and Edwin is now responsible for the Global Cloud / AWS service line.
