António Sousa Duarte

From Alentejo and a man of letters since always, he began by being a journalist. Where he did a little bit of everything, but from time to time he recalls the time as a war correspondent for the Lusa Agency in the Bosnian war and the direction of a daily newspaper. He went through several titles. One thing has not changed: he continues to wake up in the morning and lie down at night thinking about information and how can he best bridge the gap between customers and the media. His biggest interests are April 25 revolution and social justice, and so, he wrote several biographies about personalities who marked him with their life examples, as well as a PhD thesis in Political Science.

Gestor de Contas Sénior

André Pereira

Sempre tratou as notícias por tu, não tivesse o André dedicado quase duas décadas ao jornalismo, sempre na liderança daquele que é um mercado competitivo. O seu maior objetivo é comunicar e sabe fazê-lo como ninguém. Calma e tranquilidade – não há como definir melhor o André. Mesmo no meio da tempestade tem sempre uma palavra apaziguadora. O que não esperávamos era que os gostos musicais fossem tão diferentes. O André adora Heavy Metal. Adora, não, podemos mesmo arriscar que é um fã incondicional. Já no futebol, e embora seja um lisboeta de gema, o seu coração tem mesmo duas cores: azul e branco!

She's a tough woman like few!

Marta Silva

GENERAL SECRETARY

Marta Silva

Marta is our mother's courage, with three daughters. Nature changed her turns: one daughter was born too early, the other daughters came hand in hand. This events helped Marta to know very well the priorities of her life: to work hard and always in extreme concentration, to escape at the end of the day from Lisbon to the countryside and to her family, where she finds tranquility. She studied Communication Sciences - Marketing, Advertising and Public Relations, and after a few laps in other sectors she ended up returning to the world of communication, but now in the backoffice. She solves all problems, from people to contracts, always with the same availability.

But if she can take her bicycle for a ride on the weekends, she's happy too! Loves nature and socializing with friends, but its in music she finds her element. From classical to jazz, and some mainstream, she lets her sensibility rise above through the melodies. Paula may be a tough woman, but she's also a sensitive one. She likes to pamper and be pampered in return, like the big family woman she is!

Carla Castro

A Carla tem sempre um sorriso para partilhar! Licenciada em Comunicação, já fez de tudo no jornalismo: imprensa, televisão e rádio. E agora as Relações Públicas numa experiência que diariamente partilha com a restante equipa. O mundo caminha cada vez mais para o digital, mas a Carla gosta de manter o hábito, que não quer de todo perder, de ler e folhear livros, jornais e revistas. Como óptima conversadora, comunicar, para ela, é como respirar porque é a falar que a gente se entende! As viagens, nem que seja através do cinema que adora, fazem parte das suas maiores paixões.

Gestor de Contas Júnior

Pedro Gonçalves

Graças à série ‘The Simpsons’, tinha quatro anos quando aprendeu a falar Inglês e cantou um dueto ao colo de Tina Turner! O que ele queria era escavar fósseis e minerais pelo mundo, mas finalmente o gosto pela Internet e pela comunicação falou mais alto. Na sua simplicidade notam-se as suas raízes: cresceu e viveu no campo, rodeado de animais de estimação. Comunicador nato, não nega um bom desafio. Escreve poesia em cadernos soltos que espalha pela casa e perde-se na música pop e rock alternativo. Começou a sua carreira no Jornalismo mas acredita que o seu futuro passará, inapelavelmente, pela Comunicação Empresarial. Na ADBD, claro.

Gestor de Contas Júnior

José Gonçalves

Nasceu e viveu na Covilhã, entre a neve da Serra e as cerejas do Fundão. Na pronúncia e no sorriso sentimos as suas raízes e a sua genuinidade. Formou-se em Ciências da Comunicação na UBI e rumou a Lisboa pronto para o próximo desafio: trabalhar na área digital. Encontrou-o na ADBD onde cresce e desenvolve competências. Há três características que o definem: o gosto pela fotografia, a paixão pela gastronimia e o amor aos animais. Está sempre a par das últimas novidades e sabe sempre quais são os novos filtros do Instagram! Dele podemos esperar compromisso e profissionalismo, valores inerentes à equipa ADBD.
