Following the move of Christian Jakober to VP of Global Strategic Accounts, Luis Cerqueira takes over as Head of Region Latin America effective September 1, 2019. “Luis’ expertise in directing sales teams, running manufacturing facilities, and managing large organizations in all facets of business management makes him uniquely qualified to lead our Latin American group,” said Pete Lothes, President and CTO of Satisloh worldwide.
Cerqueira has MBAs in both Corporate Finance and Supply Chain, and speaks four languages – Portuguese, English, Spanish, and German. He has held positions in IT (Latin America) and in Finance, Business Development and Sales Operations (USA) in the optical industry, including most recently Senior Director Sales Operations for Essilor of America. “What I find most compelling about Satisloh is its undisputed leadership in the market and the passion of our staff to develop best-in-class technology that allows our customers to produce the best eyeglasses possible,” said Cerqueira.
