I was born in Luanda, Angola (1957) where I lived until 1975.
From 1975 to 1984 I lived in Portugal where I graduated from Agriculture School and where I initiated my professional career, first as manager of the mechanization department of the Fundo de Fomento Florestal and later on as area sales manager with FIAT Tractors. With FIAT Tractors I used my practical knowledge of agriculture to advise the Portuguese farmers about the tractors and implements that suited them best.
In 1984 I moved to The Netherlands where, after a short period working as “üitzendkracht” doing various menial jobs, I started to work in the Poultry Industry.
Until 2010 I held various senior positions (Area Sales Manager, Sales Director and Business Development Manager) in some of the most well-known companies that supply equipment to the poultry industry Worldwide (Pas Reform, Moba, Salmet and Prinzen).
During this time I had the opportunity to accumulate a wealth of knowledge from the practical work experience across many diverse countries, cultures and environments.
In late 2010 I founded Triplelima with the objective to provide single or integrated solutions that help poultry companies improve their operation, profitability and competitiveness in their specific market.
Professionals in the Poultry Industry say that I am a passionate and a dedicated “solutions provider” with a detailed, though practical, approach and the drive and determination to help their poultry companies operate at their best, by promoting innovative and cost effective solutions.
Operating this way has earned the respect and cooperation of many poultry professionals Worldwide.
I am proud to be an active member of the Poultry Industry and thankful to have the opportunity to contribute to its further growth.
We have enjoyed the privilege of being part of this industry and hope to have earned the right to continue to do so for many years to come.
