< Back


David has been a Scout since he was 8 years old and his dream is to become CEO of a company in the area of industry.

He's a dedicated person, passionate about his work. He enjoys leading teams and inspiring others to achieve their maximum performance. He believes in continuous improvement and the role it plays in organisations. Therefore, his main ambition is process perfection.

He began his adventure in the world of work in 2012, in a consulting company in Aveiro. There, he worked with several companies operating in the area of quality and safety systems in the centre and northern regions. In 2015, he decided to return to Porto to work in a different industry.

Late in 2015, having received an excellent proposal, he returned to the industrial sector. However, he did not identify with the company's values and transferred to the technological area at Controlar, where he worked as operation manager.

In 2018, he had the opportunity to lead the merger of Parsec, a company acquired by Controlar, becoming CEO of Parsec during the merger, until June of 2019.
