BRW: What do you enjoy most about your role?

The most I enjoy about my role is that everyday there is something new to learn and there are always new challenges. I work with a team that makes results possible with commitment, enthusiasm and hard work.

BRW: How did you get into the industry?

After studying polymers abroad I returned to Colombia moving from the academy to the industry with the expectations of translating knowledge into solutions. At Procaps I’ve had the chance to do it based in its culture of innovation and transformation, working with challenging Projects and new technologies.

BRW: Where is your favourite place in the world and why?

My favorite places are the ones that I’ve had the chance to live in detail. Living in Barranquilla 5 years now, I can say that the city has experienced many positive changes about infrastructure and investment. It is my second home and it is one of my favorite places because it is always sunny, warm, quiet but changing.

Abroad, Santiago de Compostela, Spain where I studied is a charming place with history, many cultural activities and a universitary lifestyle that brings to me great memories. It is a place for enjoy and coming back always.
