I´m a Brazilian materials engineer, married and have two kids. I experienced Sweden one year as AFS exchange student when I was 17 years old, since then I´ve been in contact with the Swedish culture and worked 14 years for the company Gunnebo Industries.
What will your responsibilities be as Area Sales Manager?
I´m responsible to develop Persson Innovation’s business in South America showing the market why our brand means innovation, premium quality and sustainability to consumers. The best part of being Area Sales Manager is to deliver the Persson Innovation message to our customers and also to create a better experience to consumers.

What does sustainability mean to you?
For me, sustainability means a better world and future to my kids and the planet. I think it’s important to re-think your packaging, both because it’s easier holding your box in one rather than both hands, but also because I really believe that we need to replace plastic for sustainable materials.
