You need an account to view this information.

I offer great expertise in quality and efficiency improvements of E2E Accounting / Controlling / Treasury and Cash Management processes with passion about solving problems by means of out-of-the-box solutions and SAP Best Practices, as a 4-year experienced Senior SAP FI CO HANA Consultant with prior 5 years experience as an Accountant supporting Business Controller and as an Auditor.

What sets me apart from the average consultant is the ability to critically challenge your business processes & give you sound advice, to speak and understand your language, to go into detail and be rigorous, and the courage to go for the highest expected return rather than minimum risk solution.

During my career I have talked eye-to-eye confidently with many finance professionals, fluently in Portuguese, English, German and Russian languages, having worked and lived in 5 different countries.

I hold a Bachelor degree in Economics and a Post Graduation in Finance (grade 14/20) at Nova Business School of Economics.

Furthermore, I have passed 2 SAP Certifications: SAP Certified Application Associate - SAP S/4HANA for Financial Accounting & Management Accounting Associates 2018.

In my SAP project portfolio I count 1 full life-cycle Greenfield implementation project and 2 other SAP roll out projects.

Specialized in chemical production, energy production, distribution and logistics sectors.
