Summary

I have a solid experience in business strategy planning and in international operations in emerging markets (Brasil, China or Est Europe) in automotive, chemical-textile and machinery industry. Large background as engineer and managing experience in different business go together with my good capacity to adapt in new environments, my knowledge of foreign languages, my passion for high pressure environments, self-confidence, strategic vision and teamwork. I have a wide range of professional experiences that have forced me to have an open business mind, always maintaining a level mind when implementing a solution. Focused on problem solving with strong hands on and common sense attitude, I like challenging projects within high pressure environments like renewable energy market, fine chemicals, automotive, consumer goods or consultancy.

Objective

My interests are in the area of strategic management, operations and consultancy (logistics, production and quality), development of new projects to international level and entrance to new markets.
