ESTG Professor Wins Prestigious Microsoft Platinum Club Award


Nelson Pinho has been awarded Microsoft’s highest award for outstanding achievement, the Circle of Excellence Platinum Club.

Nelson Figueiredo de Pinho, PhD in Industrial Engineering and Management and lecturer in Management Information Systems at Polytechnic of Porto School of Technology and Management (ESTG) received last 19 July  the most prestigious award from Microsoft - the Platinum Club - Outstanding Achievers.

Only a few of Microsoft’s nearly 100,000 employees receive this award each year, which recognizes the company’s strongest contributors and top performers.

Working at Microsoft Portugal since 2017, the ESTG professor does not hide his pride in receiving the award, but also emphasizes the importance of teamwork: “This recognition is the result of a all team, and the best of all. ”

Winners of the Platinum Club are influential leaders that have surpassed expected achievements and have gone above and beyond. This club represents Microsoft’s ongoing commitment to recognizing its finest and reflects the value Microsoft places on its peak performers.
