To continue the successful momentum being achieved amongst our Portuguese network, we’re extremely excited to announce a new management team. With growth in tourism and international investment, the Portuguese economy is thriving which offers a hugely optimistic opportunity for our energetic new management team to help the local team deliver even more value and cost optimization support to our clients.

Our new leadership team want to maximise their presence in the market, most notably with plans to double the size of the Portuguese business within 3 years. This is a bold plan but having the right people to help push our business forward will play a crucial role in our ability to achieve our objectives, which ultimately will help us to better serve our customers.

With this in mind we are now proud to introduce the new partnership team leading the network in Portugal, João Costa (pictured left) and João Pontes (pictured right). Both bring with them strong corporate and high-level management experience and are enthusiastic about the future, foreseeing strong growth in the number of customers they can support and the size of ERA’s Portuguese network.

In the past 4 years João Pontes has achieved great success in his ERA business and has earned everyone’s respect as a senior part of the European team. He is now equally as excited about this new partnership and the future of ERA’s business in Portugal, believing that their combined experience provides a strong base for all new and existing ERA Consultants to grow in Portugal.

“Our consultants can focus on their own skill set and utilize the ERA network to deliver on the functions where others are stronger. With our joint management team, we have competencies to offer incremental support to all the local structure, irrespective of whether the Partner is focusing on client management, project management or solution delivery.” (João Pontes)

João Costa’s experience as an ERA client means that he has a great insight into the effectiveness of the solution ERA consultants provide. “The Portuguese market is having a great moment, but headwinds are forecast in the international economy, which will put greater pressure for the local businesses. ERA has a unique position to help implement efficiencies and gain competitive advantage in any company across all sectors due to its in-depth expertise across the whole supply chain. Being a former ERA client places me undoubtfully in a privileged position to talk about ERA’s key benefits for any company.”

With the demand for ERA’s services growing in Portugal, local businesses and business leaders have the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the incredible wealth of knowledge available to help them gain value and improve efficiencies. Protecting the future success of your business is a great way to gain a competitive advantage, which our Portuguese network is focused on providing to organisations, fuelled by their extensive insight and practical experience.
