Duarte Vaz Lourenço

Dreams were made to come true

From early on, he dreamt of a career in the field of Information Technologies. Whether or not he would succeed, he let the future decide. And that's what happened: after years of determination, today Duarte is a well-known professional valued in his occupational area.

He lives with his family in Ponte de Lima, where he was raised. However, this was not always the case. After completing his studies, Duarte established himself in Lisbon, where he spent quite a few years enhancing his career. While pursuing his MBA, when he was allowed to choose where to set up his company, Duarte chose to do so in Viana do Castelo, close to home.

He is assertive, fair and loves to plan his life to the nearest second. Duarte feels he is also under obligation, as head of Atlanse Portugal, to do more for society, and so he cares about making sure that, in due time, he leaves an overall contribution with a positive impact on the Minho region. For him, his goals are but a dream away.
