About

Niarchos is a proud latino gay man who completed his studies in Computer Science. Born in Brazil and raised in Uruguay, Niarchos experienced cultural intelligence from a very young age. After joining multinational German company SAP in 2010, working still in software engineering, his passion for equal opportunities led him to join Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) efforts as a volunteer. He was soon transferred to SAP’s headquarters for a one-year assignment reporting to SAP’s Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer. During his stay in Germany, he was responsible for 100+ Employee Resource Groups and coordinated the development of the company’s first Diversity & Inclusion Learning Program, which was then rolled out worldwide and is now part of the learning curriculum available to SAP’s 100K+ employees.

Due to his efforts in support of inclusion and belonging, Niarchos later became the Head of Diversity & Inclusion for SAP Latin America & the Caribbean in 2015. Based in Brazil, he spearheaded the design and execution of the regional award-winning Diversity & Inclusion strategy. In 2016, the Financial Times selected Niarchos as one of the Future Global LGBT+ Leaders. Due to Niarchos’ leadership, in 2019 SAP earned 30 D&I awards, including Guia Exame de Diversidade (Brazil), WEPs (Brazil), Premios Flor (Argentina), Eikon (Global) and MarComm (Global). At SAP, Niarchos launched the Autism at Work in 5 locations, increased 5% women in Leadership, launched 30 Employee Resource Groups and helped SAP to become a well-know D&I leader in the market.

In early 2020, Niarchos decided to join Wikimedia Foundation as Director of Global Diversity & Inclusion. He created a D&I vision and strategy, expanded the D&I team and revamped the global hiring processes. After one year, he decided to join Booking.com where he relocated to Amsterdam to be the global Head of Employee Activation. In 2022, Niarchos became the Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion for LATAM at Warner Bros. Discovery - the home of brands like HBO Max, Discovery+, Warner Bros. movies and many more.

Niarchos loves travelling and is a huge fan of genealogy, building his family tree with over 3.500 people up to the year of 1200.
