STEER COMPANIES TOWARD RESILIENCE AND VALUE

A business-oriented risk manager, Pedro positions himself on navigating in complex environments and disrupted business areas.

Resilient, and owner of strong analytical background, Pedro has extensive experience leading complex strategic projects for the business that are challenged to exceed themselves. These include selling assets, restructuring of teams and departments; developing and implementing new corporate strategies; leading a subsidiary of a large international bank to be the first to deploy new accounting standards and being in the inception of the lending activity for the national development bank.

This diverse experience in areas such as finance, risk, operations, audit and IT made it possible for Pedro to have an in-dept understanding of organizations and to realize its main competitive advantage: People.

With the Magellan MBA Pedro became even more prepared and confident for exploring new leadership roles in challenging environments.
