Professional experience

Tomás started his career holding sales and management positions at Oracle and Iecisa and, as a true entrepreneur, moved to the Silicon Valley, where he co-founded Secuware Inc.; he worked as part of the senior team to develop and execute the global strategy for the company, co-started international operations partnering with the EVP and other executives on leading the company, and increased revenues to position the company in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant 2007 & 2008.

During his time in the Silicon Valley, Tomás became an expert on Corporate Strategy and how to make CyberSecurity companies grow fast.

Back in Spain, Tomás joined Trend Micro, where he was rapidly promoted to General Manager for Spain and Portugal, transforming Trend Micro’s business in both markets.

However, in Tomás’ words, most exciting is his new career as a professor at IE, professional coach and public speaker.


Tomás holds a Bachelor in Physics (major in Computer Science) from the Complutense University of Madrid, a Master in Communications Software from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and a Psychology of Peak Performance degree from Stanford University.
