Talent Ambassador – Omar Castro

My name is Omar Castro, I am from Bogota, Colombia. I am a Growth Manager settled down in Naantali, Finland. I am currently working at Empirica Finland in Turku, providing consulting in strategy and working with sales, marketing, business solutions and strategic alliances. I love my job and I am very happy and grateful to have this opportunity.

In addition to working at Empirica, I am developing a entrepreneurship business solution for circular economy. This solution is focused on exchange, transparency and traceability, and to bringing new strategic partnerships together with security, trust and saving on costs.

I lived in Barcelona for 2 years, where I worked and enjoyed a lot. Before Barcelona, I lived in Australia, where I met my wife. I was studying, working and surfing on the Gold Coast for 3 years. Then we moved to Melbourne for 2 years. We have always wanted to live in Finland, so when my wife got a Job here, we moved right away from Barcelona to Turku. 

I like all kind of sports, football, volleyball, basket, chess. I enjoy playing almost anything, from a board game or videogame to CrossFit, Snowboard, Surf or Longboarding. We have a dog, his name is Klaus, and we like to enjoy nature together.
