Juan Bravo Vargas
Solution Architect

“My driving passion is the opportunity to share my knowledge and make a real difference.”

From Microsoft trainer to HSO architect and published author

Juan had over 18 years of experience as an IT manager, implementing ERP solutions for companies in his native Chile. The more exposure he had to working with Microsoft Partners, the more he realised he’d like to become a Solution Architect. Always ambitious, it made sense to him to make that leap by working for one of the key players in the Microsoft system. And he knew that would mean a move to Europe.

Once there, he made his way into HSO, where he’s thriving today. By understanding and connecting HSO clients’ business needs and goals with the IT implementation team, he plays a key role in helping them expand their reach and impact.

He also brings with him over four years of experience as a Microsoft Certified Trainer, helping his peers engage with the technicalities of the Microsoft ecosystem in an easily digestible way – a role which led to him co-authoring a training book in 2023. Juan’s Becoming a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management Functional Consultant Associate book is seen as the go-to manual for best practice advice on Microsoft solutions consultancy and has led to him becoming a seasoned speaker on the international circuit.

A dynamic, inclusive and entrepreneurial culture

Juan initially joined HSO as a Service Delivery Manager. He moved into his current Solution Architect role when he and his manager recognized that his consultancy skills better suited that team. And that supportive encouragement and flexibility is something that Juan really values about HSO’s working culture. He believes that allowing team members the freedom to define their own path encourages a drive for success and a greater sense of job satisfaction.

Not surprisingly, he adds, “Once people are in the role that’s the right fit for them, they don’t leave.”
