Hugo Branquinho

Together everyone achieves more.

Hugo’s professional life went full circle when he was sent to Angola for seven years. He was born in Africa, Mozambique, and since he has changed places quite a bit, from Vila Real to Lisbon and, of course, now Porto.

He was always interested in engines and the automotive industry, but even though he studied Mechanical Engineering he decided to keep his passion for a hobby and professionally focus on fuel and energy. In a way, he kept it in the family.

Hugo says his love of machinery started from his lazy days as a boy, wondering how machines could do the work for him. And that is a good thing, because it put him on the path to where he is today.

Hugo sees himself as a family man and a person with great technical skills. He is taking the Executive MBA to develop his management skills and leverage him to be the leader he wishes to be.
