Carlos has spent a fair part of his professional adventures in the Decision Management world. He worked on major European technology projects as well as at the European Space Agency, focusing on distributed real-time systems. He co-founded a startup providing front-office trading systems for the European financial market. He joined AI pioneer Neuron Data in its early days, worked on Nexpert, expert system leader, and then was at the origin of Blaze Advisor, which helped bring about the BRMS revolution to business applications. He has been responsible for all Decision Management technologies at FICO, as well as the company’s Enterprise Architecture group. He is a passionate development and product leader.
He has two kids he is extremely proud of, and who are on their way to become major players in the endeavors they choose for themselves.
When he is not involved in his work or his kids, Carlos loves listening to music (a little peculiar in his choices), reading Latin American, French or American literature (in particular short novels), watching movies (mostly French) and driving through the curves on Skyline or any challenging road. He is waiting for the post-mid-life crisis to hit hard, then buy a motorbike and do his own “long way down” trip.
Carlos also encourages all to participate in and contribute to humanitarian causes to help relieve the hardship that is everyday life for so many, in particular kids. A dollar spent for the education or preventive medical care of a young kid in Haiti is worth a world in long-term benefits for the kid and society.
Of course, Carlos is passionate about anything related to Decision Management.
