Nuno Teixeira

An optimistic leader with a vision of a sustainable world.

Nuno has worked in engineering and construction projects all his life. This civil engineer’s work has taken him to Angola, Mozambique and Libya, Brazil and back to Portugal - again. An experience which suits him perfectly, as travelling is one of his hobbies.

In Portugal, he took part on the high profile high speed train project and in several highways projects. In the last 5 years, Nuno lived in Mozambique, where he was Director of several public engineering and construction contracts. Though those contracts never took off, his career did and he prides himself on the variety of projects he was part of. Nuno has had plenty of different experiences in leading teams and projects around the world. Something he has definitely taken away from it all is how important is a company’s corporate responsibility. Taking care of its employees and having social projects is something all companies should aim to do, in his opinion.

Nuno also has an hidden artistic facet. Recently he has completed a photography course and now carries his camera with him at all times and places. He also has a special interest by Art, Architecture and Sculpture. Passions which allow him to explore his creativity, thus bringing more colour to his life.
