For Alexandre Rosa, CEO of Grupo Noesis, “This appointment is above all recognition of the excellent work that Luís has been doing since joining Noesis in 2017 and of the fundamental role he played in the entire integration process at Grupo Altia, with special emphasis on the work of organizational alignment, optimization of economic and financial management and redefinition of processes.

This is the great challenge that lies ahead.”
