About Rui

In the past, I've managed operations (teams, office) for a British company, driven to implementing high-quality solutions for the top retailers and providers in the UK, as a Country Manager (and legal representative) of a branch that I created from scratch - The company was acquired by the biggest retailer in the UK. Recently I created my own company in order to help international businesses to expand operations to Portugal. I'm also a Co-organiser of an entrepreneurship movement at my city in order to boost synergy between public and private entities.
