Certificate Holder Profile
Jose Luis Martinez Castillo
Spectris do Brasil Ltda.
Jose Luis began his career at Philips Venezuela where he was a service engineer. After several promotions, he became the industrial electronic manager. He then accepted a position with the Philips Analytical Latin American division in São Paulo, Brazil.
Jose Luis was transferred to Boston, Massachusetts once the Spectris Group acquired the analytical division of Philips and renamed it PANalytical. He has since integrated the Mexican operations with the LATAM model. In addition, he is in charge of marketing, sales, and service for analytical instrumentation in the Latin American region. In 2012, José Luis moved back to Brazil and is now working to expand all Spectris business in Latin America.
He graduated as an electronic engineer from the Universidad Simon Bolivar in Venezuela and has his master in finance from the Instituto de Estudios Superiores de Administracion (IESA).
After debating between pursuing a MBA or courses on the areas he considered more relevant for his professional development, he found the Advanced Certificate for Executives in Management, Innovation, and Technology (ACE) to be the perfect solution for his needs. “ACE combined the academic rigor of MIT with a flexibility that allowed me to focus on the topics most important to my development. In addition, the networking opportunities provided a real professional forum for discussion and contributed to an extraordinary growing/learning experience.”
