Brief introduction and background

I graduated in Biochemistry and started my career as an IT cosultant involved in different telecom projects in Spain. After five years I completed my MBA in IESE.

Career path at Globalpraxis

I joined the company in August 2008 as a Consultant. I was promoted to Senior Consultant after 1,5 years and had the opportunity to work as an Acting Manager on one project. I left the company in August 2011 for personal reasons.

"The experience I developed at Globalpraxis working with many fast-moving consumer goods companies, and particularly creating new route-to-market models, was key to being selected for new positions."

Key projects / experiences that stood out at Globalpraxis

I will always remember a project with the leading soft drinks company in Egypt. As a Senior Consultant I was in charge of the route-to-market work stream to move the company from van selling to pre-selling in a profitable way, for which a complex distribution network by leveraging on the different distribution actors available was proposed, according to the reality of the different rural and urban areas of the country.

Career path post-Globalpraxis and how it was shaped by time spent at Globalpraxis
