André Vilar

The versatility of a successful career

This is an unusual story of a veterinarian who decided to trade in his lab coat and commit to a career in Management, in 2007, having been invited by a multinational in the pet food sector. Thus, André doesn't say that he's always had this liking for that area. However, he lives his career with the assurance that he's here to stay.

Changes don't frighten him. As soon as he embarked on his career, he saw his leadership, management and communication abilities grow. He took to liking the area and, since then, he has been a pragmatic, organised and optimistic professional. But what really makes him stand out is his creativity. Whatever his task, André is committed to delivering “outside the box” solutions.

On strenuous days, he finds that surfing is the perfect way to make peace with life, while music is the remedy to cure all illnesses. André acknowledges that he's a good team manager, as his contact with music provides him with a different sensitivity to deal with people. He is proud of his versatile career and lives life with the optimism of those who know that tomorrow is always better.
