Silvina, Strategy, Development and Planning Manager of Total Austral’s Neuquén Asset
Convinced of the importance of communication and teamwork, Silvina is in charge of defining the development strategy, the objectives and the key areas of interest of the Neuquén Asset. In this new position she holds since September 1, 2019, she coordinates different sectors during the conduct of studies and ensures that development plans are in line both with corporate and Asset objectives. In addition, she leads the comprehensive planning of the Affiliate’s strategic projects. Her commitment to better energy starts by promoting the dialogue among the different teams of professionals so as to coordinate and encourage initiatives.
Blazing New Trails
Silvina joined Total Austral to work for a company that gave her the opportunity to specialize in new technologies and developments that had yet to be implemented in Argentina.
Twenty five years later, she is still seeking out new challenges. After spending two years in a team specializing in the drilling, completion and operation of shale gas wells in Ohio, United States, she is now bringing her experience to Argentina. "I'm somebody who tackles projects wholeheartedly, taking ownership of them and committing fully", Silvina says.
Excellence Through Cooperation and International Training
Silvina is making her mark in an industry that until recently was dominated by male managers. Throughout her international career, she has had the opportunity to work with professionals from different cultures and fields. "I personally believe that goals are not achieved individually, but rather are the result of putting together teams of people who are able to listen to each other and are always open to change." She admires people who are transparent and consistent in their attitudes and are always ready to pass on their knowledge without competing. Silvina believes that anyone can make the decision to innovate and add a new dimension to their work, regardless of the position they occupy in the company. "Anyone can determine their own challenge; it really does depend on the person", she says.
Planning for the Future, Enjoying the Present
Silvina strikes a balance between her personal life and her demanding work, spending quality time with her three children. "What counts is the quality of the time you spend with your family, not the actual number of hours". She loves continually seeking new challenges and looks ahead to the future without forgetting to enjoy the present.
"I'm somebody who tackles projects wholeheartedly".
