NATURAL COMBINATION OF PRAGMATISM AND CREATIVITY, ADAPTATION AND LEADERSHIP

Jaime is rational and technically skilled, but his true value lies in his drive to make things happen and his ability to lead the path to solutions by simplifying problems. With a degree in Civil Engineering, he currently has 10 years of experience in management projects. He has been actively involved in the areas of construction, industry and real estate.

He defines himself as a person who enjoys working as part of a team and understanding the reasons behind a strategy, even more to take part in outlining that very strategy. He is an ambitious and active professional, as well as a friendly team player. He has no trouble adapting to different environments and feels at ease presenting an idea to a large audience, thanks to his good communication and empathy skills. He is currently seeking management opportunities within his company or other positions, where ambitious goals are set, and large teams management is required.

In his spare time, he enjoys surfing and snowboarding and never says no to a football or padel match. Passionate about discovering new cultures, he has visited 35 countries and has lived in Brazil, Romania and Algeria.
Music is another great passion of his!
