TESTIMONIALS

“I had the opportunity to work very closely with Chechu on a variety of projects. As an architect, he went beyond the implementation side and worked on a complete solution view. Throughout these projects, Chechu often illustrates the much needed combination of art-of-possible with credible instantiation. He is not phased by a complex challenge. He is determined and driven to learn, unlearn and relearn. He is capable of handling a technically complex project whilst winning the confidence of business stakeholders.”
Moe Abdula
Head of Solution Architecture, WW Specialist, AWS
He is capable to act as an architect, modeling a solution, managing a team of specialists, developing methodology and governance mechanisms. I think I’ve never met somebody so enthusiastic, so eager to accept challenges no matter how scary they were and spread this energy and tech curiosity to everybody around him, so prepared to work hard -really hard- when it has to be done and to work towards a goal of doing something useful and of value for our customers. It’s a pleasure to work with him and this is what I always remember the most.
