Selectra was born in 2007 when Xavier Pinon and Aurian Maupeou saw a need for more information about the opportunities following the liberalization of French energy markets. Though still students of the prestigious Sciences Po Paris, the energy and vision of the young entrepreneurs (aged only 19 and 20) won the trust of major energy firms to sell their products.
With energy markets throughout the world opening to competition, Selectra has been able to replicate its business model internationally. Selectra Portugal was the company's second experience abroad, in early 2015. Jaime Arbona and Gonzalo Lahera strong>, founding partners of Selectra in Madrid, have managed to make the company the leader in energy comparisons in Spain in just over two years. Selectra is currently present in 12 countries spread across Europe in addition to subsidiaries in Japan and Turkey.
Since 2016, Selectra also helps consumers reduce their mobile phone and internet bills. Selectra collaborates with various telecommunications operators present in Spain with the aim of offering the widest range of price options possible.
Selectra Portugal has come a long way since its beginnings in Madrid with only 2 employees, counting 12 employees by the end this same year (2015). Professional merit and involvement are the most important factors in your professional development at Selectra, and are the keys to your success with us.
