Professional Experience
I believe Technology is just a means to make people´s life better.

This is not something I learnt at the Engineering School. After 15 years in the Telecoms industry , I realised that I could help to change our society by applying my skills and knowledge to the improvement of everybody’s daily life. The experience of taking the Executive MBA at IESE Business School contributed a lot in conforming this vision.

I tried to make a difference through my role as Head of Smart Cities and IoT Product Management in Vodafone. I was the leader of the strategy, product development and Go to Market of Vodafone Smart Cities Proposition and Local Lead of product development and Go to Market of IoT Solutions, including the commercial launch of NB-IoT in Spain.

Now I want to move forward and I am looking for a position where I can bring tangible benefits for people and companies alike.

My fields of expertise include marketing, product management, business development, transformation programs, presales and delivery of solutions for corporate clients, development of telecom services and customer operations for a variety of verticals including Smart Cities, Utilities, intelligent buildings, smart home, data centers, disaster recovery planning and public networks.
