What is next in evolution?
Marco studied aeronautics and, though he was always curious about that field, his head and his heart are in space. His engineering background has taken him to different countries and projects. From a military related venture near Bristol, to a project in satellite systems in Switzerland, Marco has made the rounds. However, it was family and the birth of his daughter that brought him back to his native Portugal.
Currently leading a spin-off named SteelPro, which has now reached companies beyond its parent, Marco is a leader looking to hone his skills and learn more and more. He considers some of his toughest experiences, namely leading other engineers much older than himself, as the most formative ones.
Marco balances his science-based thinking with a love for the creative and artistic world, counting antique restoring as his favourite hobby. Plenty has passed through his hands but a special bicycle and motorbike are worth mentioning.
The driver that makes him coming back to work every day is the fact that he truly believes his work can contribute to mankind’s next big step in evolution. A statement made by Marco with his two feet firmly planted on the ground.
