How long have you been with Telefónica and what is your assessment of your time here? 

I have been with Telefónica for 9 years now and in all this time the company has helped me to grow not only professionally, but also personally, promoting the values that have been lost in the social sphere and which are rarely seen in the world we live in. 

Is there any project at Telefónica that you feel particularly satisfied with or proud of? 

Yes, several, but I would especially mention one that I had the opportunity to lead, which was the implementation of hybrid identity, a project that I was involved in for the first time with Hispam and we had visibility with the other countries, with Venezuela being the first country in the region to implement it.  

What do you think Telefónica has contributed to society? 

I think that technological innovation has always contributed a lot to society, which is growing exponentially these days, and also just the fact and the effort to keep us more communicated every day, having more means to do so through digitalisation and the internet of things, I think that is a great contribution to the society in which we currently find ourselves.   

Where do you see Telefónica in the future? 

From my point of view this is a difficult question because I have a lot of empathy for my company, but I still have to say that I see it positioned as one of the main telecommunications companies in the world, if not the first. 

Could you live without a mobile phone? 

As long as I continue to work in the systems area I doubt it, when I was a kid there were no mobile phones and we could live without problems, but I think the world has changed and we have to keep up with technology. I can’t see myself without a mobile phone!
