    From Manager to Director

" My first year was far from being a success. However, my managers trusted me by giving me a new opportunity. Two years later I created a Business Unit from scratch with 50 people. Then Lyon, Switzerland, Brazil and finally Asia where I am now the Executive Vice President.

I am a Brazilian who decided very early to see the world and at 17 years old I left my country.

For as long as I can remember, I have always been passionate about business (the most profitable deal of my career was trading my PlayStation 1 for a horse 😊).

I trained as an engineer in France and joined a Junior Entreprise in 2009. During a prospecting meeting, I met the founder of Amaris, he was amused by my offer and promised me a job after my graduation.

So, I joined the company in 2013 as an intern in Paris. My first year was far from being a success. However, my managers believed in my potential and gave me the opportunity to move to Strasbourg. 2 years later, from scratch, I created a Business Unit with 50 people. I moved to Lyon, and 3 years later we had grown from 80 to 300 people. Then Switzerland, Brazil and finally Vietnam. Today, I am the Executive Vice President for Asia.

" Amaris Consulting recognizes my effort, dedication, commitment, and hard work, and gave me the opportunity to grow throughout these 7 years. I’m super grateful for this.

I started as an IT Consultant, with the goal of becoming a Project Manager, because I’ve always pursued the managing part and team leading. In the middle of this journey, however, I had the opportunity to become a manager. I didn’t know what this role was until this opportunity presented itself. It sounded great because it was a mix of three things that I really love -managing people and clients, competition and commercial approach, and the IT sector. So, I thought, why not? I then started my career as a manager, then Senior Manager, Department Manager, and now Operational Director. Once again, the role of a director has that image that it’s a “man’s job” … I’m quite grateful to have this responsibility and to be recognized for my achievements at Amaris Consulting. I have a phrase that I use almost every day: Do not complicate the situation by giving in to fear. It is this fear that makes you stronger. Be bold! P.S. Throughout this journey, I would not have done anything differently!

" The challenge here is very big and exciting and the objectives very ambitious!

I joined Amaris Consulting in 2014 as Manager in Italy for the IS&D Business Line. It was very exciting to see our activities and our clients to growth day by day. We opened clients great accounts.  I quickly evolved as Senior Manager in 2016 and then Department Manager in 2018. I accepted the challenge to develop the offices in Bologna and Rome. In 2020, Iwas promoted to Operational Director for Italy and thus managed 6 offices and a team of managers for all IS & Digital activities. After 7 years in the company, I was appointed Director for the Colombian team. An exciting challenge with ambitious objectives!

We are proud of our inspiring intrapreneurs who continue to build their career path within our company.
