Laboratory Leader - Cotia, Brazil
My first job, while I was graduating at Chemistry Technician, was in an ink industry in São Paulo countryside. There I always heard about Flint Group - the market leader in this segment.
I always worked with paint and inks and, in 2010 I was invited for an interview at Flint Group and in the interview they asked if I knew about Flint Group, which obviously I did because, after all, Flint Group had been my main competitor in my early career.
I began my story at Flint Group as a trainee, at the Raw Material – Instrumental Analysis Laboratory, and it was there that I learned about complex techniques like gas chromatography and infrared.
Very soon, I was promoted as Chemistry and, at the same time, there was a great opportunity to do a master's degree in analytical chemistry area at one of the most renowned universities in the country. This was only possible, due to the knowledge acquired at the Flint Group laboratories.
After the masters degree, in addition to the joy of this achievement, I was promoted to Raw material lab Leader. This the first of many great opportunities that have happened during my career here. After the masters degree, I did several courses, including an internship at Flint Group in Milan-Italy, at Cinisello and Caronno site, where I learned a lot with very experienced and charismatic people.
Today, six years later, day after day I have been conquering more space inside the company, I feel like a person very accomplished and valued here at the Flint Group.
