“My story at SAAM Towage starts on 01/2019 as Commercial Director at SAAM SMIT (SST), 30 days after my start at SST Boskalis decides to sell its 50% in SST to SAAM! So, in a few days I became 100% SAAM! It was a great experience to participate in the takeover of SST and the creation of SAAM Towage Brasil (STB). It was a time of great change and personal growth. Then, following its growth rhythm, in 2020 SAAM closes the purchase of 70% of Intertug and Baru Offshore and invites me to be the Country Manager of its operation in Colombia and Honduras. Happy with the challenge, today I live in Cartagena, Colombia, raising the SAAM Towage flag in the Caribbean region. Despite its 6 decades, SAAM is a young and dynamic company.
