José Duarte, CEO, Infovista


What was your big career break? 

• Back in 1993, I was offered the opportunity to establish SAP in Portugal. I took it, starting as a consultant in a small part of what was this gigantic company. Through hard work, we established a foothold in the market. I evolved to become SAP’s president of Latin America, later President of EMEA and, finally, global president services and corporate Officer. It was the ride of a lifetime. I worked 20 years at SAP and have been privileged to meet with talented people and witness technological revolutions. That experience has shaped me as both an executive and on a personal level.

Who was your hero when you were growing up?
