Short Introduction

Since 2009 Robert Breitbach Consulting has also been present on the Iberian Peninsula.

From La Coruña in Galicia, we manage our projects in the west of Spain and in Portugal.

Our office in Barcelona is responsible for the east of the country, including Madrid. We also reach most Spanish metropolises from there via the high-speed train network.

We specialize in assisting European and American companies in the search and selection of executives for their Portuguese subsidiaries and plants.

The appointments are usually C-level positions. In about half of the cases we are looking for Portuguese people for Portugal. But of course, we also have networks and internal resources that allow us to search Europe-wide and worldwide.

About 70% of the search projects contain the keywords: "CEO, Managing Director, Country Manager, Business Development Manager or Expansions Manager". In addition, we have been able to fill many positions in the areas of sales, plant, and production management.

We are pleased that you take the time to visit our "News" page. Here we would like to inform you - updated monthly - about news from the economy and society in Portugal.

Portugal's Economy in 2023

According to OECD, Portugal's economy will decline to 1% real GDP growth (from 6.7% in 2022).

This is caused by the war in Ukraine, supply-chain disruptions, elevated energy prices and rising interest rates.
