Director, Business Development, HSP Group
After living in various countries, Manuel decided to start his international business career in Madrid. He has been working in business development roles since 2014, starting with Swedish group Nefab, running their international projects in North Africa and the Middle East. Always enthusiastic and with a well-developed set of sales skills, he entered into the professional services industry when hired by TMF Group and appointed as Commercial Director for EMEA. His primary focus was on the Iberia region (Spain & Portugal), where he actively supported inbound Private Equity and Real Estate investment projects in Europe, the Middle East and Africa being undertaken using Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) services and structures by American, British, Korean, German and French funds. He is also experienced helping Spanish and other European-based businesses, whether multinational corporations or high growth technology start-ups, expand globally. He has especially enjoyed helping these clients to bridge their opportunities throughout Latin America.
Besides work, Manuel enjoys being a DJ on special occasions, never misses his daily CrossFit workout, and is an aficionado of good wines.
