Sandra Esteves

Senior Project Manager

  1. What is your role and how long have you been at Demica?

    Senior Project Manager and I joined Demica nearly 3 years ago.

  2. What is your background (career history)?

    My first work experience, after completing my masters, was at the biggest insurance company in Lisbon and I was very enthusiastic to start my professional career being part of a group of 10 people selected for a pioneering programme for young executives in partnership with Ernest & Young. After 8 months of on-job training E&Y, I have had the opportunity to work in different areas within the company and end up establishing myself as part of the IT Department - Operational Improvement & Special projects. This experience gave me the tools and techniques that allowed me to perform my role and a solid and strong base that I would apply during my professional career and as they say… the rest is history!

    With over 20 years’ experience in major change programmes in banking, financial services, telecom, oil & gas, rail, insurance and utility companies, I have led numerous client-facing programmes & projects for senior management and board level both in the UK and Ireland and extensively in Portugal and Spain. In my career I have managed teams of more than 40 people as a Solutions & Corporate Development Director and been working not only as a project/ programme manager but also as a PMO lead, Quality Management, Risk Management, Client Services Manager and as a consultant in process improvement and reorganisation (aka change management).

  3. Describe your job in 5 words.

    Intense, challenging, collaborative, teamwork, Client-facing

  4. Describe your typical day at Demica

    Early start with an obligatory coffee for comfort. The morning quietness allows me to review the pending emails, activities from last day(s) for completion when possible. Once the clock approaches 9 am, sometimes earlier, the meeting reminders start to pop-up on my screen and the madness starts …. My time is mainly distributed by client meetings/calls, internal project team meetings, internal projects, new processes, projects admin, operations meetings… and the list go on! The greatest thing is that I get to engage with pretty much every team in the company: implementation, client services, legal, QA, Business Development, Product, Finance, Technology, HR, Structuring and management team… sometimes smiley faces, other times worried faces, some people more optimistic and others more realistic, that is Demica.

  5. What are the best and most challenging parts of your job?

    People are the best part of my job, engaging, working together, finding solutions and being supportive. Time, team availability/prioritisation and "bugs” are the more challenging part of my job along with poor time management.

  6. The best piece of advice you have been given and who was it from?

    Listening - an amazing & powerful skill!

    From Demica's COO Anthony Hernandez.

  7. If you could be an animal, what would you be and why?

    A Lion, they are independent, courageous and protective and an incredible fighter.

    Since November 2017

  2. Describe your job in 5 words

    Diverse, engaging, creative, demanding and collaborative

  3. What’s the most interesting thing you're working on at the moment

    A TRS deal ($70m) for a large commodities trading company. It’s interesting because it is intellectually challenging

  4. What's the best thing about working here

    Working with interesting and intellectual people from different backgrounds. Demica has a good vibe, everyone is approachable and knowledge sharing on an every-day basis is key to our collective and personal development. I very much enjoy this dynamic, collaborative and entrepreneurial environment.

  5. What’s the most challenging thing about working here

    The rapidly changing environment due to growth and the diversity of the role as one moment you might find yourself going through legal documents and then switching to analysing data & working closely with the implementation and technology teams.
    Our target group is also companies who don’t have easy access to funding so when we work closely with them on transactions, they tend to implement changes that help optimise their processes and therefore their funding prospects.

  6. Who inspires you

    I’m touching on several projects including a new tool for the TRF rebuild. The user acceptance part is the most interesting in terms of the technical features of the rebuild.

  4. What's the best thing about working here

    There are so many positives about working at Demica. First of all, everyone irrespective of their position are approachable and are willing to share their experiences. Secondly, there are many growth opportunities, for everyone in the business who are willing to put in the hard work. Last but not the least, it always gives you the feeling that you are part of a family rather than a corporate firm.

  5. What’s the most challenging thing about working here

    Understanding and managing expectations are the most challenging part of my role. We have grown rapidly in the last few years and have people and prospects from various backgrounds and experiences. In hindsight, this is great as everyone brings something different to the team. However, managing expectations becomes tedious in this process. Hence, we need to further hone our processes.

  6. Who inspires you

    My mother has always been my inspiration in life. She taught me to “never give up” in life. I have learned to look at positives and move on, irrespective of situation, from her.

  7. Tell us something about you that we don't know

    I used to sketch portraits and landscapes when I was at school. It is something I would like to go back to.

  8. Where's your favourite place in the world
