An informal interview of Ing. Fernando Lueje with Subir y Bajar
Fernando, how did you enter the vertical transport sector?
As a student of civil engineering at National-Regional Technological University of Buenos Aires, an employee of Soimet contacted my mother and asked if I would be interested in entering that company in 1996. I was also a musician, I taught piano and guitar as a music teacher. However, already in the fourth year of my career, I had no experience in construction practice, so I joined a construction company and I managed unique civil works as director of works: a complex of duplex in Las Toninas, summer resort the Province of Buenos Aires. In 1997, construction began to decline and I re-consider the lift connection with the construction. I had a meeting with Adrian Gonzalez, the MD at that time. That was how I joined Soimet in June 1997 where, with Hernán Amoretti, we were Adrian's right hand in the engineering department.
