Rocio Tomas Maicas

Dubai, AE



Having always had an interest in International Business Development, I started my career assisting construction-related SMEs. From the initial phases of their establishment in foreign markets to assuring their consolidation and expansion. Currently, I am working on the identification, acquisition and assessment of new architectural and engineering business opportunities in the Middle East.

My architectural background has given me the technical expertise to develop, acquire and assess potential projects and to coordinate new opportunities.

I have the ability to adapt to complex international environments having worked in countries as diverse as USA, Spain and UAE. My excellent communication skills along with my commitment and knowledge of market research have proven to be an asset for International Business Development.
