During his almost 19 years living in Portugal and working in the Iberian Island, he acquired a profound knowledge of both countries’ social culture, people and business. His HR experience as a trainer, coach and entrepreneur combined with an engineering degree makes the ideal mix to select the best suited profiles needed to entirely fulfil the expectations of the Be Wanted customers and partners.


Our Belgian partner in India has more than 25 years of HR and recruitment experience. His work in training & development combined with a long experience in Indian business and culture made the match with Be Wanted complete.
