FROM ARCHITECTURE TO PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Once Filipe Araújo completed his degree in Architecture from the University of Porto, his goal was clear - to combine architecture with project management.

Soon, he headed to Luanda, where he worked as Head of the Planning department in a construction company, where he was responsible not only for architectural projects, but also for coordinating special projects and supervising budgets.

Three years later, Filipe was invited to be Project Manager being responsible for the development and control of a broad range of real estate projects. The 7 years Filipe spent in Angola allowed him to get to know the market in depth, with all its specificities as well as the best ways for solving management and logistics specific problems. The MBA was the next logical step and worked as an enhancer of the knowledge gathered during his experience in Angola.

Perhaps because of this international experience, Filipe feels at ease fostering personal relationships. As a good communicator and a person with a high level of emotional intelligence, Filipe excels in leading teams. A curious mind, Filipe always seeks to learn more. Currently, he is focused on learning more about Business Strategy and Management, Innovation and Technology.
