Marcelo Igreja

Driving successful change

At age 2, nothing would lead us to believe that Marcelo's arrival in Portugal from Brazil would be just the first of many moves that would test his ability to adapt to new cultures. To Marcelo, the world is too vast for us to stay put in just one place our whole lives.

With a degree in Civil Engineering in Porto, he has transnational work experience. The sun of the United Arab Emirates was the first to welcome him in adventures away from Portugal. After that came Libya, Guinea, Ghana and, later on, Angola. While Marcelo's international experiences are manifold, there's no place with which he identifies better than with his country, Portugal.

He values the little conquests and aspires to achieve a world of opportunities for everyone. If there's one thing Marcelo has learned from his vast international experience, it's that, whatever happens, his resilience won't let him give up on pursuing the desired results.
