With a 25-year career, Rui Moita takes the next step by becoming the European Director of Human Resources at LG Electronics, a position that no other Portuguese man has received. In his resume he has been assuming human resources management functions in national and international companies, arriving in Portugal in September 2017.
In the past two and a half years, Rui Moita has managed about 90 employees, and according to the company, he was one of the main responsible for the Great Place to Work award in the category of 100 employees received in March 2019. LG would be the only company in the sector of Eletrnica to be included in the list of the 25 best.
The Portuguese, who previously held positions in the human resources management of the manufacturer in Portugal, was also a European Human Resources Business Partner. Now he takes over 16 organizations, as well as the position of LG's HR Global Advisory Group, representing Europe.
This change naturally makes us very proud, as this is the first appointment of a Portuguese to a position of such high responsibility and visibility in our organization. It is a new challenge for Rui and it will be one for us too, says Ruy Conde, General Director LG Portugal.
For Rui Moita, the nomination represents more than a mere individual recognition, being mainly a result of teamwork among LG Portugal employees. Eva Freitas, as part of her team, takes her place at the Portuguese branch.
