Jose-Manuel (Chema) Collados is originally from Spain. He graduated from the University of Zaragoza in 1998 with a degree in Industrial Engineering, with Specialization in Electronics and Automation. He had his first contact with mobile robotics in 1997, when he participated in a project in Laboratory of Analysis and Architecture of Systems (LAAS) in Toulouse.

In the beginning of 1999, he joined ABB where he learned by participating in different departments: robotics, project engineering, execution and sales. He worked 10 years as global key account manager.

He then moved to the ABB Power business to become part of the solar renewable energy project team. 
In the last years, he has worked as business manager in ABB Spain for Power Conversion, Industrial Drives and Robotics and Motion businesses where he could pursuit some of his larger passions: building and maintaining strong teams that were able to grow and develop new businesses in the fields of automation, power, electrical mobility and traction.
