André’s focus will be to develop a strategy, which builds on recent successes, brings FLYdocs to a wider audience by translating market requirements into innovative solutions, and leads the FLYdocs team to drive significant business growth.

André brings a great depth of knowledge of the sector, and we are delighted that FLYdocs and their clients will now have the opportunity to benefit from his experience and expertise.”
