Diego Fernández

President and founder

I am a Telecommunications Engineer and PhD. in Robotics. In 2005, at 25 years of age, I decided to take the plunge and I founded a technology company called ARQUIMEA with the objective of exploiting a patent i had been awarded and with which I wanted to make the world better. It’s been over 15 years and that Little company is today a bigger one, cross-sectoral, with a team of bright committed people that still have the same illusion for improving our world.

Mi role as President of ARQUIMEA Group is to lead this team increasingly diverse and talented. It is an honor and a responsibility.

I enjoy tennis, good food and I play piano to relax.

Manuel García Sañudo

CEO

I devoted a great part of my life to team and business management and to leading important global growth projects. During my professional career, I held several general management positions in the mining, civil engineering and defence sectors. I am a Mines Engineer from the Politécnica de Madrid University and Executive MBA from IE Business School. One year ago, I decided to embark on the adventure of moving to Palo Alto (California) to take part in different innovation, technology and management programmes.

I am also “Ad Honorem” Professor at the Politécnica de Madrid University, where I give Intercultural Management conferences.

In my free time I like to practice any sport that makes me be in touch with nature, like sailing, swimming, trekking or cycling. My will for growth has made me take part in several high-demand sport challenges.

Francisco Javier Gómez

Vice President

I joined the Group in 2001. Ever since then, I have coordinated and led areas such as administration and finance, IT support, human resources… But my world is the management and controlling of the organization, caring for the Group’s needs and finding the resources and ways to meet its objectives and overcome its challenges; day by day; week by week; month by month; match by match.

This is where my “atlética” vein comes in. I am a supporter of Atlético Club de Madrid, and I try to apply its philosophy to my daily job. Facing each challenge with passion and competing with the best, Think Big; always fight, Do the Job; and, above all, enjoy the Good momentos, Enjoy Life. I keep learning everyday from those who surround me and I feel proud of my team, always with a goal: growth, growth, growth.

Santiago Pla

General Counsel and Manager of the Legal Department 

I am a lawyer and for most of my life I have worked in the field of trade law, business law and company law. At ARQUIMEA Group I supervise the M&A department.

After many years being one of my clients, ARQUIMEA offered me the opportunity to join their team. The human quality of its people, its huge passion for the most innovative technology and its bold project set no doubts for me to accept. After almost 4 years I can say that, to me, this time has been one of the most thrilling and suggestive. I enjoy what I do everyday, I’m excited about what there is left to do and I wait impatiently the surprise of tomorrow.
