Ana Catarina Reto, MSc

Roche Pharmaceuticals

    I started my academic path in 2010 in the Faculty of Sciences In Lisbon, where I took my degree in Biochemistry. After that, in 2013 I entered Instituto Superior Técnico to start my Master in Biotechnology. My thesis was done in LNEG ( National Laboratory of Energy and Geology) in partnership with Instituto Superior Técnico. In 2016 I decided to go into a different path and started my Master in International Management in Nova School of Business and Economics.

    I started my professional path during my thesis in an Internship in Volkswagen Autoropa in the Strategic Department. My main responsibility was follow up of the main KPI in the factory (providing reports and analysis to all the Departments) and at the same time working in my thesis, where the goal was to develop a strategy for the Tool and Dye Business Unit Growth Plan. In 2018 I started my job at Nissan as a Care Specialist where my main responsibilities were Implementation of Brand’s Quality Politic at the Dealers, management of the Dealer’s Variable Margin and ensuring the implementation of the Electric Mobility Project in Portugal.

    In 2020 I had a brief experience in Nestle as Data Analyst, where I was responsible to Iberian market data analysis and monitoring with the different business areas and markets of end-to-end data flows. In 2021, I changed to BCA, for the European IT Team to be Project Manager where my main responsibilities were leading the scoping, planning and delivery of IT Projects. I had the opportunity to work with internal technical and operational staff and 3rd party suppliers to achieve successful project delivery and transition into live operations. Moreover, I worked with several European Markets (Germany, Spain, France and Portugal) in the implementation on transversal solutions according to IT European Strategy.

    Recently I joined Roche Pharmaceuticals, as IT Business Analyst in Global Organization, where my main role is working with different countries/ teams in order to follow the Business Strategy on the Implementation of Technology Solutions.
