I started my career in the media industry in my native Lisbon, where I was a journalist for 8 years. In 2007, after graduating in Marketing and Business Administration, I embarked on an international career with Amadeus IT Group – the leading provider of technology for the travel industry. I held a number of managerial roles in Marketing and Communications in Nice (R&D Centre) and Madrid (Global HQ) before being invited by the Executive Committee to head the group’s Employee Engagement function in 2010. In this position, I led the first-ever global employee engagement strategy, including the design and delivery of behavioural and culture definition initiatives, communications for change, coaching and training HR teams, managers and executives.
In 2013 I began working as an independent consultant in London to help other executives and businesses with their culture and business transformation programmes. My clients included Vodafone, EY, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, and Ceva Animal Health.
In 2014 – driven by a shared common purpose to create sustainable success, and work alongside a very international group of practitioners – I joined Telos Partners. My personal goal is to expand the Telos Partners practice by establishing offices in Spain and Portugal.
I am a regular speaker in the subjects of culture transformation, internal communications and brand/employee engagement. With academic records in Journalism, Marketing, Business and HR Strategy, I am fluent in Portuguese and Spanish and have a working knowledge of French. I am married and the proud father of two children.
