About João

João brings to Australia a passion and deep global expertise in the energy sector, having served clients in the electric-power, oil and gas, and heavy industries across Africa, Europe, and South America. This work has spanned a range of topics, from optimising mature oil and coal businesses to crafting strategies for emerging technologies, such as solar and storage.

His most recent experience includes leading the ramp-up of multibillion-dollar investments in Africa’s oil industry, re-organising exploration and production business units, transforming transmission and distribution operations, and changing how companies work with suppliers. João has also worked extensively on marketing and sales strategy in energy, specifically in the fuel-retail and electricity and gas markets.

João’s first language is Portuguese; he is also fluent in English, French, German, and Spanish.
