Elbio currently runs Chapman Taylor's Middle East desk. Previous to this he was the Chief Executive Officer of Chapman Taylor España, and a Board Director of the São Paulo office. He has worked for Chapman Taylor since 1987 and was involved in several major projects in the United Kingdom.
In 1992 he was asked to investigate the possibilities of taking Chapman Taylor's experience and 'know-how' into the Iberian Peninsula. This resulted in the practice working successfully on a number of commercial projects in Spain & Portugal and the subsequent opening of Chapman Taylor España in January 2000. In 2009 Elbio opened Chapman Taylor Brazil in the city of São Paulo.
