When creativity meets science.

José Rui has a Pharmaceutical Sciences degree from Coimbra University, where he learned more than molecules, friendship, loyalty and politics. After graduating he performed several roles in the Pharma Industry, as Quality, Purchasing, Regulatory Affairs and Market Access Manager. José Rui is a knowledge seeker so he did an Executive Master in Marketing Management. Business oriented, his final year project - the Magium Farma - made it to implementation phase and was successfully launched. As General Manager, José Rui placed Magium Farma as a leading multi-platform promotional service in Portugal, which bridges multinational labs and 90% of the Portuguese pharmacies, starting from zero in 2011 to more than 17 Million € in 2016.

José Rui Peixoto love’s Vila do Conde, his friends and his family. And when presenting himself, only after this happy and concise presentation does he talk about his professional life.

As a creative Leader, José Rui can find connections between seemingly disparate phenomena.
Optimistic and dedicated, he dreams about running a marathon and backpack travelling with his family. Sunglasses and newspapers are his two must-have.
