Being in contact with different countries, mentalities and cultures is very enriching

In this interview we will learn a little about the most personal facet of our America Managing Director, Ramon Rubau.

Ramon RubauExplain to us your day-to-day management.
Coordinate the whole team that manages the American continent with important direct clients, distributions of prestigious international producers, and of course the 4 subsidiaries that we have in the region.

What differentiates Ventós in the market?
Apart from the wide range of products we have in stock and the represented companies we are proud to distribute, the options and service we can offer to our customers, either locally, or from the head office, and even from any other location where we are present, such as China, which today is a major producer country of our industry. In short, a truly global distribution.

What do you like most about your work?
Being in contact with different countries, mentalities and cultures is very enriching and opens your mind to other ways of doing and thinking that complement you.

Of the 3,000 products we have in stock, which is your favorite?
Ambroxan. It is a synthetic chemical that I was able to work closely with in the past and resembles a precious natural product of animal origin, Ambergris, which comes from the sperm whale, its bile secretion after digesting squid that is part of its diet. Its smell is sweet, earthy, marine and animalic, a wonder of nature

What smells take you back to your childhood?
I grew up in the Baix Empordà, with the Mediterranean and the Tramontana (north wind), the smell of the sea, rosemary and cypress.

Your ideal vacation destination? What would your perfect vacation be like?
None and all at the same time, my romantic dream from my youth was always to sail around the world on a sailboat, of course it should be quite a "long" vacation.

Main trait of your character?
Optimistic, bold without disregarding prudence, tolerant, generous and conciliatory.

What style of music do you listen to? Favorite singer?
Pop-rock from the 80's, favorite band Dire Straits.

What is your favorite hobby?

If a film director offered you to make a movie about your life, which actor or actress would you like to play your character?
Robert de Niro.

Would you prefer to travel to the past or to the future?
To the past. The Middle Ages have always fascinated me, although I don't know if I would regret it because of the harsh living conditions in some cases.
About the future, I prefer the surprise of seeing it coming and not discovering it in advance.
