Having already been 'in charge' of Puma Energy in Mozambique and two of the group's companies in Angola - Transfuel and Pumangol Industrial - the Angolan now returns to the country for one of the biggest challenges of his career: the leadership of the Pumangol Group, advances the newspaper O País.
As the head of the Mozambican company, he has made it one of the best known brands in the fuel storage and distribution segment in the country. Puma Energy Mozambique is now in the ranking of the 100 largest companies in Mozambique.
Four years later, Ivanilson Machado is back in Angola. This is the first time that the group has put a national board in charge of its business in the country. In the 11 years of its presence in our territory, the Pumangol Group has always been led by expatriates.
At just 41 years old, the businessman has already been considered one of the 100 most influential people of African descent in the business world.
His basic training was done in Portugal, in the area of International Relations and Political Sciences, having several complements in the areas of business management and leadership in European universities.
The Pumangol Group belongs to the multinational Puma Energy - an oil company based in Sinapura. The commercialization, storage and distribution of oil is its core business. It is present in more than 40 countries, 17 of which are on the African continent. Angola is one of the main bets.
