Rafael is the most professional of individuals. He has a high attention to detail, is timely in his deliverables (including being early) and responsive to changes in work plan. In combination, these traits and his professional skills make it easy and a genuine pleasure to work with him.

During our work together, I have always found that Rafael is ready to put all his energy and stamina to get the job done. Rafael is a well-rounded, globally educated and energetic. For a region (Latin America) that may at times move slowly, he is able to work in a fast-paced environment and help me to understand the business and cultural dynamics of the region.

In May 2014, me, my colleagues and a group of Russian students have visited Rio de Janeiro, and Rafael was our major support and greatest help in the process of organizing and conducting this study tour.  Thanks to Rafael, his great professionalism, pure dedication to everything that he is involved in, as well as his rich list of contacts, we managed to arrange an excellent set of visits to major Brazilian companies, largest universities and most prominent school of business.

Rafael is a true professional. He is comfortable asking questions and is skilled at anticipating possible issues. Once he commits to a task or project, he follows through, on time, and is highly reliable. He has superb communication skills and is responsive and thorough, with a real attention to detail.  He is resourceful in his research approach and is an amicable and approachable person on top of it all!
