"My career was in the supply chain until I became an entrepreneur. I worked in the several distinct areas of it as an engineer and then as a manager up to strategical levels. From the factory floor and work with truck drivers and warehouse operators, after good years in quality, I worked doing, implementing. I got good at that, and I was as well good in developing processes and frameworks and new approaches to doing things. I know myself as being an “intrapreneur” my whole life; always in the role of a change agent transforming the organisations, I belonged to from within.

Being 13 Years of leadership at Unilever, a best-in-class company in sustainability ( #1 Supply Chain according to Gartner since 2017), shaped my wish for responsible business and more significant transformations. I became to believe that other companies could do good and much better than the big giants, as Unilever does. I worked making sustainable business happen, before I studied it, but learning about the science, history and sociology behind it was an open mind moment for me.

When people asked me what have I done in the companies I worked for the list is very long. I have acted as a designer and implementer of different processes and frameworks such as sustainability road maps​ for supply chains including logistics and global quality programs. I have established S&OP processes and made factories lean manufacturing benchmarks. I managed most areas in the supply chain and the whole of it as well, end to end. During the last 10 years of my corporate time, I became more holistic. I started training in mindfulness and applying changes to my work. Today I believe in mindfulness and awareness as top key aspects of being a good professional and good human being.

What makes me proud, beyond any change that improved processes, is influencing the lives of people I coached to be better and more fulfilling. It is through knowing my work had a positive effect in the quality of life of other, being them the truck drivers within a social program in Brazil, or my teams, forming many new leaders whom I know to be conscious and responsible ones."
