Jo­sé Ma­nuel Ma­cha­do sub­ra­ya la suer­te de “te­ner una gran fa­mi­lia con cin­co hi­jos y 19 nie­tos. Aho­ra me to­ca dis­fru­tar de to­do lo que ha su­ce­di­do a mi al­re­de­dor y en lo que no he po­di­do siem­pre par­ti­ci­par co­mo hu­bie­ra que­ri­do por mi ac­ti­vi­dad pro­fe­sio­nal. Del sec­tor apre­cio los mu­chos ami­gos que he­cho con los que man­ten­go ex­ce­len­tes re­la­cio­nes”. Por otro la­do, es­tá in­mer­so en al­gu­nas aven­tu­ras em­pre­sa­ria­les “pa­ra man­te­ner la ca­be­za des­pier­ta, dis­fru­tan­do en es­ta nue­va eta­pa, no me­nos apa­sio­nan­te que la an­te­rior, tra­tan­do de apor­tar va­lor con mi ex­pe­rien­cia. En una com­pa­ñía tan gran­de co­mo Ford apren­dí que, co­mo sue­lo de­cir, no man­da el je­fe, sino el que tie­ne la ra­zón. Siem­pre de­ben im­po­ner­se la ló­gi­ca y el sen­ti­do co­mún”. Una de esas aven­tu­ras le ha lle­va­do a la pre­si­den­cia de Next, “fir­ma que em­pe­zó ven­dien­do se­gu­ros li­ga­dos al ki­lo­me­tra­je del vehícu­lo. A par­tir de ahí, vi­mos que ha­bía una opor­tu­ni­dad en el co­che co­nec­ta­do, don­de he­mos en­fo­ca­do nues­tro es­fuer­zos. En co­la­bo­ra­ción con Ac­cen­tu­re, pien­so que va­mos a lle­gar a muy buen tér­mino. Es­ta­mos al­can­zan­do un gran co­no­ci­mien­to del vehícu­lo y de la in­for­ma­ción que ge­ne­ra. En Next so­mos pio­ne­ros en el co­no­ci­mien­to en el tra­ta­mien­to de es­ta in­for­ma­ción. La co­nec­ti­vi­dad es­tá cam­bian­do el mun­do y su­po­ne un re­to pa­ra to­das las em­pre­sas y pa­ra las ins­ti­tu­cio­nes. Es muy im­por­tan­te que es­ta tec­no­lo­gía ge­ne­re trans­pa­ren­cia a la ho­ra de ren­dir cuentas”.

Jo­sé Ma­nuel Ma­cha­do emp­ha­si­ses his luck in “ha­ving a lar­ge fa­mily with fi­ve chil­dren and 19 grand­chil­dren. Now it’s ti­me to en­joy everyt­hing that has hap­pe­ned around me and which I ha­ven’t been able to par­ti­ci­pa­te in as I would ha­ve li­ked to due to my work. In the sec­tor I trea­su­re the many friends that I ha­ve ma­de, with whom I main­tain great re­la­tions­hips”. On the ot­her hand, Ma­cha­do is al­so im­mer­sed in bu­si­ness ven­tu­res “to keep the mind going and to en­joy this new chap­ter, which is no less ex­ci­ting than the pre­vious one, as I try to con­tri­bu­te va­lue th­rough my ex­pe­rien­ce. In such as big com­pany as Ford I learnt, as I al­ways say, that the per­son who is in char­ge is not the boss, but rat­her the per­son who is right. Lo­gic and com­mon sen­se must al­ways pre­vail”. One of the­se ven­tu­res has led him to be­co­me the pre­si­dent of Next, “a com­pany that star­ted out se­lling in­su­ran­ce lin­ked to vehi­cle mi­lea­ge. From the­re, we saw that the­re was an op­por­tu­nity in re­gard to con­nec­ted cars, which we ha­ve fo­cu­sed our ef­forts on. In co­lla­bo­ra­tion with Ac­cen­tu­re, I think that we are going to do well. We are lear­ning a lot about the vehi­cle and the in­for­ma­tion that it ge­ne­ra­tes. At Next we are pio­neers in know-how re­la­ted to the pro­ces­sing of this in­for­ma­tion. Con­nec­ti­vity is chan­ging the world and is a cha­llen­ge for all com­pa­nies and ins­ti­tu­tions. It is very im­por­tant that this tech­no­logy ge­ne­ra­tes trans­pa­rency when re­por­ting back”.
