Luis V. Neves

Director, Business Development, Brazil

Luis has 17+ years of experience in engineering companies where he has worked in the proposals, commercial and project controls areas.

Brazil’s recovering economy and extensive commodity resources will excite foreign investors to again look at the country’s investment opportunities. Investors are looking for cost-conscious solutions and Ausenco’s cost-effective and fit for purpose designs will resonate with these investors’ goals.

Luis has participated in the development and negotiation processes of more than 1,500 technical and commercial proposals for multidisciplinary engineering services for various studies and projects, as well as EPCM proposals for the biggest projects developed in Brazil during the last years.  Among them are: S11D, Barro Alto, Sossego, Kinross Paracatu Expansion, Salobo, and others.

He has extensive knowledge in management and project control, as well as legal aspects related to the contracts. Luis offers an in-depth understanding of the full sales cycle process and remains focused on customer satisfaction throughout all stages.

Luis is head of Proposals Department at Ausenco Brazil since February 2010 where he was able to reinforce the knowledge obtained in his almost 10 years’ experience at Minerconsult Engenharia, acquired by SNC-Lavalin in 2007.

Since joining Ausenco Luis has gained extensive experience in the wide range of services offered by Ausenco, and particularly in the pipeline and ports & terminals areas, which were added to his previous relevant experience in the mineral processing projects.
