A decision that had a huge impact on your life
Before Executive Search I had a previous career in Technology and in Management Consulting. One day, in 2005, completely out of the blue, during a lunch with one of the most recognized headhunters in Brazil he invited me to work at this company. Changing completely the direction of my career was one of the best decisions of my life. I’ve been working in Executive Search for over 15 years and I’m still passionate about the impact we can make at people’s careers and lives and also how the decision about recruiting have a direct impact on company’s decision processes.
