Tell us about yourself/your team.
I’m a simple man who was born in the countryside of São Paulo, in Riberão Preto. I love fishing, soccer, and my family and friends.
Ever since I was young I’ve followed the examples I have; I believe that hard work, humility, and commitment to what’s coming next are the keys to success.
By following these principles daily and remembering my dream of transforming both myself and the world, I was able to have remarkable experiences: I was a professional soccer player, a motorcycle courier, a student at CAASO, an engineer, and today, a pragmatic dreamer at Danone.
Today I am the Manager of Sustainability, responsible for the management of the department and of its socioenvironmental priorities.
What makes you an intrapreneur? What are the skills, capabilities, and personality traits that make you an intrapreneur?
I always view problems and challenges in a positive light—and honestly, I am drawn to projects, attitudes, and activities that are true challenges. I am attracted to the unknown because I understand that it is an opportunity both for growth and to be able to make a difference wherever we go.
The longing for something new within a heart that concerns itself with making this world better for everyone is the fuel that powers me to propose changes and always find the energy to challenge businesses.
This call to change for the better resonates strongly with me, and therefore I am able to pass it on through true, honest relationships, and without losing the commitment to results that the world of business so badly needs!
This vision of a business that is more of a partner with society is contagious, makes people happy, and stimulates change! And that, I believe, is my strength!
