He began his professional career in 1992 at the European Space Agency, ESA-ESTEC (Netherlands), and continued in the process industry at STORK-COMPRIMO (The Netherlands). He joined Airplan in 1996 as Project Manager and went through the technical direction, commercial management and marketing direction – professional evolution that was fundamental to understand the multidimensionality of the business.
In 2011 he was appointed Managing Director.

He believes it is imperative to offer valuable proposals to the clients and to continuously improve the results of the company, whose value is measured according to the future benefits that are generated to all the parties involved: customers, employees, shareholders and collaborators.

Today, as Managing Director, he defines strategies, supports their implementation and ensures compliance. He gives the teams freedom but redirects them when necessary. He demands proactivity and efficiency, which is translated into dynamic and efficient projects.

My goal

Our objective can not be other than the one  established by our founder half a century ago: to prosper beyond economic profitability by increasing the value of the organization with products that fill us with pride and positively impact on society and also improving our own well-being.
