Much more than a farewell, I’d like to take this moment to say thank you to all the extraordinary people whom I’ve worked with over the years, who shared their knowledge and skills with me and made my work life so amazing! A special thanks to my Legal team, but also Security, R&D, Procurement, Marketing, HR. It was an honor and a privilege to work with each of you!”
The lawyer added: “Now I am thrilled to share that I joined Feedzai, an incredible company that is putting our country, Portugal, on the spotlight with groundbreaking technology that helps companies combating fraud and money laundering. I am humbled with the super warm welcome I got from everybody, and I can’t wait for the journey ahead with this great team!”
