Tell us about yourself/your team.
I have an MBA in economics. I’ve been a consultant in one of the most recognized companies in the world and was responsible for the strategic planning and development of new businesses in several enterprises. I love looking to the future, imagining where I want the company to be and defining and implementing actions that will achieve a better future. No matter how challenging the plans are, they are only good intentions without proper actions; they won’t achieve the expected outcomes, nor a significant scale. I am lucky to work with a great team of experts, within a company that can make a difference.
What makes you an intrapreneur? What are the skills, capabilities, and personality traits that make you an intrapreneur?
I am an intrapreneur because I love transforming an organization from the inside out and making it more sustainable. That is, make a company, one of the largest in Latin America, have a lower environmental impact (transport, suppliers, farmers and other links in the value chain).
To succeed, it is essential to define a vision and a strategic plan and to focus on programs that may have better environmental impact and significant scale, taking advantage of the company's competitive edge.
The necessary skills and personal features are: having a strategic vision, the capacity to define priorities, innovative thoughts and perseverance. It is also necessary to work with promotional campaigns and internal sales, and to earn support at every level.
