According to Eugenio Calabuig, president of Global Omnium, “the team is truly responsible for this award. And above all, those who more than ten years ago, led by Jaime Barba, made the qualitative leap to the talent, technology and innovation that the company needed: we made the leap towards digital transformation. An enormous effort then, but one decade later, it is undoubtedly a value that sets us apart and makes us pioneers and at the forefront of technology and water”.

In addition, Jaime Barba highlighted that we should let people know that “we are doing high-level technology in Valencia. This is possible due to the synergies between Global Omnium, GoHub and GoAigua”. An award that is particularly important not only for its prestige, but also due to Jaime Barba’s link with the Polytechnic University of Valencia, where he studied during his career.
